You read their books. They make you think about how you interact with your horses. You really like their message, and it doesn't take long to know they are a rare gem in an industry littered with fakes.
Once in a while, these gems travel to share their knowledge in person.
Kate from A Year With Horses posted about one of those rare gems coming close to my area, Mark Rashid. Thanks Kate! In fact, he is presenting at no less then three clinics in my area - and damn it, I am going to make it to at least one!!
I am hoping to audit. Koda has never been to anything remotely similar, and it would require my husband transporting us. I would be waaay too nervous to participate. I am sure Marks clinics are popular and filled at this point anyways. Auditing would be a good place to start.
Do you have any auditing tips to share?
Do tell about your auditing experiences, was it worth it?
I wonder if you can take pictures?
Of course if I brought my good camera, then I would be focused on getting good photos and not learning. It would defeat the purpose, but it sure would be fun!
I have sooo many questions, much that depend on the clinician/facility. The price, remaining open spots, times, photo policy etc.
Hit me up with your suggestions. I'll be hitting send on my email inquiries soon!
