Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Mar 25, 2014

Horsemanship Group

NorCal Downunder Horsemanship Brumbies

On today's show we find out how others are networking to learn more about horses and horsemanship. Two followers of the Downunder Horsemanship Method Michael Canfield and Laurie Frohn live in Northern California. They have a love of horses and an appreciation for horsemanship.  The result was naturally to form a horsemanship group.  The two knew if they connected with other like-minded horse owners their knowledge would grow much faster. Through the No Worries Club, offered by Downunder Horsemanship, they networked with other horse owners and formed a group called the Nor Cal Downunder Brumbies. This is a real go-getter horsemanship group.  The group  meets often whether it is just a practice day or a camp out.  They love to have fun and from what I understand, they love to eat too!

On Memorial Day Weekend the NorCal Downunder Brumbies are hosting a big horsemanship group outing at the Windemere Ranch in Paicines, CA.  I understand it is a beautiful ranch and was once the home of Doc Bar.  It sounds like a not only a fantastic value, but a lot of fun too!

In the fall they are organizing a symposium with many equine professionals.  They are hoping to draw professionals from a wide range of horse-related topics that go beyond just training.  The Brumbies will bring in experts in nutrition, tack, and farrier services.  It is happening in October at the Brookside Equestrian Park.

They host many get-togethers where the members work together as a group to improve their horsemanship techniques. I caught up with Laurie and Michael recently and we talked about how the group was formed and there plans for 2014.
