Sharon Wilsie - Horse Speak Clinics
Conversations with horses in their language


June 3 at 4:00p.m. through June 7 at 11:00a.m., 2019 
September 9 at 4:00p.m. through September 14 at 11:00a.m.2019 
Sharon Wilsie , bestselling author of the books  "Horse Speak"  and "Horses in Translation" will return for two clinics. Her 2018 clinics were a huge success and we are very excited to have her back at Mountain Horse Farm.
 
Both 2019 clinics are all-inclusive clinics, including, of course, the clinic itself but also all meals, snacks & drinks, accommodations and an evening program. Sharon will stay at Mountain Horse Farm, just like you, creating this wonderful opportunity to get to know her better and spend quality time during meals and evening bonfires. ​

Sharon is a storyteller with a gift for telling the right story at the right time in a way that is very captivating. That's why we have included a lecture by Sharon every evening after dinner. 

The June clinic includes 4 overnight stays and 3 full days of training. The September clinic includes 5 overnight stays and 4 full days of training. Both clinics include a 30 minutes private session with Sharon for each participant. The delicious meals start with dinner on the first evening and end with breakfast on the last morning.

Sharon's books are wonderful and a must read but you can only learn so much from a book. There is tremendous value in seeing her in real life, explaining horse speak, demonstrating how it works and teaching you in person.

Horses communicate with each other using body language. This is very different from humans who rely mainly on verbal language. Just realizing that the different movements, expressions and touches our horses make, are not just random but a language, is an eye-opener. Sharon has observed horses for a long time and decoded their language, giving us this amazing opportunity to better understand and communicate with them. 

Horse Speak, is a practical system for “listening” and “talking” to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours. Horse Speak can be used by anyone who works with horses, whether riding instructor, colt starter, recreational rider, or avid competitor. Horse Speak promises improved understanding of what a horse is telling you and provides simple replies you can use to tell him that you “hear” him, you “get it,” and you have ideas you want to share with him, too. 

The clinics will include topics like :
  • How to say Hello to your Horse
  • Boundaries & Bonding
  • The 13 buttons of Horse Speak
  • How to  Lead with your Feet
  • ​Breath Messsages
 
​You will work with our herd of horses. It is not an option to bring your own. This clinic does not involve riding horses but it will touch on topics that can be very helpful with riding like balancing your body and explaining how different ways of holding your reins influences your horse. 

During these clinics no other guests but Sharon and the participants will stay at Mountain Horse Farm. The maximum number of participants is kept low at 10 and we don't accept auditors. To interact with the horses you will be asked to sign waivers. Make sure you wear shoes with closed toes (no flipflops, slippers or sandals) and it's always a good idea to dress in layers.

Mountain Horse Farm is located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region, famous for its wineries and breweries, gorgeous lakes and waterfalls. You may want to consider adding a few days to your trip to explore the area. 

Sharon is very popular in Germany and the Netherlands. Mountain Horse Farm's owners Suzanne and Rudi were born in the Netherlands and are fluent in Dutch, German and English. If you live overseas and want to participate in one of Sharon's clinics, we are a wonderful choice. All you need to add is a plane ticket. The rest is already included. If your English is not perfect we can help with translation, so you don't miss out on anything Sharon teaches.
