The owner of my barn asked me to post this to try to get the word out.
Five Star Ranch (located on Campbellville, ON) will be hosting a Josh Lyons Symposium on March 23, 24 and 25 of 2007.
The symposium runs Fri, Sat and Sun. Josh will start off working with an unbroke horse, doing ground work, etc. to prepare the horse for saddling/riding. He will then move onto a more experianced horse and demonstrate and explain concepts such as teaching the leg yield and half-pass at all gaits, getting your horse soft in the bridle, lead changes, rollbacks, spins, and eliminating bad behavior (i.e. spooking, bucking, jigging, etc.)
Friday runs from 6:00pm-9:00pm and the cost is $25 (CDN)
Saturday runs from 9:00am-5:00pm and the cost is $60
Sunday runs from 9:00am-5:00pm and the cost is $60
If you sign up for Saturday AND Sunday, the cost is $100 for both days combined
After the symposium, Gail Haynes (double certified John Lyons' trainer and Level 2 CEF instructor) will be holding a rider clinic. In this you will be able to go over the topics that Josh showed and explained, either on your horse, or on a horse that you borrow from Five Star Ranch. This clinic runs three days (March 26, 27, and 28 of 2007) and the cost is $500 (CDN) or $30 a day for spectators
