More details about our "Barn Dance" activities April 26

Our "Barn Dance" on Sunday, April 26, is all about the natural sense of balance, rhythm, and harmony that Horses have. And how we can learn about that from the horses and add some of it to our own lives. These times are approximate:

From 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. two of our DoubleHP PT chore helper youth employees are volunteering some of their time to help us demonstrate some important horsemanship skills. Brooke and Tiffany, along with a few of our sanctuary horses, will help us with some important riding and non-riding skills that all young horse owners and their parents should know.
Also during this time, we hope to have enough time to show you how Flicka dances with her rider even with no reins!

From 12:30 to 2 p.m. two of our volunteers / horsemanship participants will explain their upcoming official Parelli Level 2 audition videos. One is riding, the other non-riding. Angela with Rocky, and Christina with Spirit will demonstrate their video plans. This may even be their official video time! They are both so close to being ready, perhaps this will be the day!

 Also during this time we will let Lovely Lily show you how she dances with her big green ball.
then, from 3 to 5 p.m. we will be joined by Carissa Palmberg of Carissa Palmberg Counseling for an EAGALA presentation. This is equine assisted counseling, learning, and psychotherapy.
Carissa will explain EAGALA, you will be able to ask her questions, and then we'll have some EAGALA group session demos. so you can see how it actually works. The Horses of DoubleHP are a part of the professional EAGALA team here, and several of them will be involved in this activity.
