Come join us for an afternoon of ground-based learning with horses for members of MAIT, facilitated by MAIT member Betsy Hickok, LCPC, of Learn with Horses LLC. (This group is not open to the general public)

Horses sense and see who we really are, and reflect that back to us through their behavior toward us during exercises in equine-assisted learning sessions (sessions are ground based - no riding involved).  We can often accept horses' feedback better than we can from people, and this kind of learning is also fun!

As we become more open to learning about ourselves, the wisdom of the horse touches the wisdom in us, and in that wisdom, new life choices appear. Clients become more comfortable in their own skins, and their relationships with the people in their lives improve.

Date & Time: Saturday afternoon October 21st, 1:00PM to 3:00PM.

Location: The Naval Academy Dairy Farm, 106 Dairy Lane, Gambrills, MD, 21054.
