This wild horse gentling journey will take place in the beautiful foothills of the Sierras known as Caliente, California (aka Twin Oaks). You will stay in cute little cabins at Wild Horse Canyon part of the 1000 acre horse rescue ranch belonging to LIFESAVERS WILD HORSE RESCUE.
This program's main activity involves wild horse gentling instructed by professional skilled mustang trainers.
The wild horse gentling and partnership/leadership building will partner our guests with rescued wild mustangs in a round pen and you will have the opportunity to connect with a wild horse helping it learn to trust humans and preparing it for a life of domestication. This entire program consists of ground activities only. There will not be riding opportunities.
The gentling instructors will guide you while you learn to earn the trust an and respect of a horse with little or no previous gentling or handling. Some horse partners may have had previous handling but will require additional ground education that you will learn to give it, such as halter and leading, picking up feet, moving in circles, and other basic gentle handling lessons.
PLEASE ARRIVE Thursday evening, May 25th 2017 BETWEEN 4PM & 7PM, to get settled and rested before the activities begin Friday morning. Our last activity is scheduled for Monday morning, May 29th, with the program concluding after lunch.
