Soul of a Horse with Lucy Rees

Lecture day and demo; Saturday 9th November 2019
at Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship, Dartington    Tickets


Lucy Rees, the world renowned equine ethologist has devoted a lifetime to studying wild living horses across the world. Through this work she has become one of the leading experts on horse behaviour and will be sharing her insightful and comprehensive findings during the course of the day. She is also an accomplished horse trainer and author.

She says: “The study of feral horse behaviour is the basis for understanding why domestic horses behave as they do and whether we are treating them appropriately. We have a lot to learn, not just about them but from them. Inside every domestic horse is a feral one with the same certainty about how life should be lived.”
