Dr. Deb will present a two-day "form to function" seminar in Montpelier, Vermont on the weekend of November 5 and 6, 2011.
Hours are 9 a.m. to noon, 1-3 p.m. both days.
Day One will be an all-day hotel/classroom session. This is a visual feast, with literally hundreds of images of horses with faulty (or sometimes, excellent) conformation. This is where all students learn the principles and concepts of conformation analysis.
On Day Two we will spend the entire day at the University of Vermont Horse Farm, where organizers have arranged for us to study physical variation within the Morgan horse breed. Here participants can see the "palpation points" demonstrated, study details of limb and back structure, and observe live horses in movement.
All participants are welcome to ask questions at any time. Come and bring a list of all those things you've been dying to ask, or points from "Principles of Conformation Analysis" that you want clarified.
Cost is $125 for two days, $100 for one day.
Discounts will be available to all participants on Equine Studies Institute books and educational materials.
