A Horse is a Horse, of Course!? 3rd International Symposium
April 25 @ 8:30 am - April 26 @ 5:00 pm$495
Organized and Hosted by Equines for Freedom and Lackawanna College, Scranton, PA, USA:
Come join us at the 3rd International Minds-n-Motion “A Horse is a Horse, of Course!?” and join a group of professionals, who are not in it to compete with one another, but who come together with the same goal: to give the horses a voice, to learn more and to share their knowledge.
“A Horse is a Horse, of Course!?” is a common statement. It sounds like a platitude – but it really isn’t. It contains both an answer and a question. A horse is, obviously, a horse, yet this statement or claim also contains a myriad of questions. What do we know about the “horse”? How is our perception influenced by our theoretical models and paradigms? How are horses seen in the various modalities that advertise the incorporation of animals? Each of the many approaches in this ever-evolving field has its own view about the role of equines and what they bring to the equation. But even though “horses” are the common denominator for all of these different approaches, models and techniques – how does each approach view and ensure their wellness, their well-being and the ethics involved?
The “A Horse is a Horse, of Course!?” Symposium offers a platform for professionals and providers and those interested in the Equine Interactive Field to present, learn, share with each other and collaborate. Ideally, you will come to the Symposium with a ton of questions – you will hear about a lot of different perspectives – and will leave with a peaked interest and potentially even more questions than when you came.
