For those who work in the world of horse rescue and rehoming, there are so many horses to help and so little time to do everything that’s needed to ensure successful adoptions, as well as running a strong organization or business. That’s why the Parelli Education Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is teaming up with Best Friends Horse Haven to offer a special two-day “Rehoming for Life” course to be held March 22-23, 2014, at the Best Friends Horse Haven in Kanab, Utah.
“This course takes a holistic approach to horse welfare, explained Tammy Barth, Horse Welfare Coordinator for the Institute. “The staff and volunteers who work in the rehoming field will increase their skills in caring for challenging horses, improve safety with unpredictable horses and learn key business skills as well.”
Master Parelli Professionals and Senior Horse Development Specialists 5* Instructor John Baar and 4* Instructor Kathy Baar, along with Jen Reid, Director of Best Friends Horse Haven, will focus on helping participants with their natural horsemanship skills, Parelli program knowledge, and business skills.
Reid explained, “The bottom line is to help humans and horses in order to improve the successful adoption rate for horses that need a new home.”
Registration closes on March 1, 2014. For those registering before Feb. 15, 2014, 10 participants will be selected by a random drawing to receive a course scholarship as well as $250 for travel expenses. To learn more about the course go to http://www.parelliinstitute.org/rehoming-for-life-clinic/.
