Ultimate Horse Experience Workshop

Join us for a five-day interactive workshop all about horses! Learn how Best Friends cares for and connects with horses, and find out how to create deeper relationships with the horses in your care.

During the workshop, you’ll get hands-on learning experiences with guest clinician Ryan Rose, and you’ll get to take part in natural horsemanship demonstrations. After the workshop, you’ll know how to create better connections with horses built on trust, respect and understanding. Plus, during your stay, you’ll get to experience the Sanctuary’s other animal care areas with behind-the-scenes tours, and you’ll witness the beauty of Angel Canyon and the surrounding area on guided rides.

Workshop check-in is on November 2, from 1 to 5 p.m.

The event will be from November 3 – November 7, 2018.

If you’d like to bring your own horse, boarding is included. Or, you may lease a horse for $75 per day.

About Best Friends - Horse Haven

The horses in these scenic pastures have come to Best Friends because they were abused, neglected, or simply because they became old, injured or un-rideable and their families could no longer afford to keep them.

At Horse Haven, the animals have access to outstanding medical and farrier care. They benefit from Natural Parelli Horsemanship. They get good food, room to roam, love and attention, and a beautiful canyon to call their home-between-homes, as they heal both physically and emotionally. Spending time with these horses is a real treat, both for visitors and the animals themselves.

At Best Friends, we use what we call "relationship-based" training. We work to build a relationship based on trust, kindness, and consistency.

We look forward to seeing you here!
