Calming Signals and Scentwork Special Course Series:
A Neuroscience, Trauma, Somatics, and Attachment Perspective with Rachaël Draaisma and Sarah Schlote
Living in a human world can be demanding for horses. Their welfare has a strong link to the amount of stimulation they can handle, and there are risks involved for horses and humans if the demands exceed their capacities. Assessing the horses’ comfort or level of tension on a subtle level is a neccessity. It is equally important to work on mutual understanding, fine tuning communication and understanding, and expanding the horse’s window of tolerance, so they can live fear-free within their captivity conditions with their curiosity, impulse to explore, and individuality intact.
Join us for this event featuring Rachaël’s ground-breaking work in reading and responding to equine language signs and calming signals, and offering mental stimulation through scentwork. Sarah will provide relevant trauma, neuroscience, somatic, and attachment-based teachings to deepen student integration of the material.
The master class is made up of a 3-day online webinar and an optional 2-day in-person seminar, with video and photo examples, lecture, demonstrations, and experiential practice.
Students may register for the Part 1 online webinar without taking the Part 2 in-person seminar. Students attending the in-person seminar must have taken the part 1 online webinar first (whether live or by video recording).
Spots are limited for the in-person seminars, and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
