Events

While most offerings are available year round, ultimately events are scheduled seasonally, honoring the cycles of nature in the southwest United States as well as when it makes the most sense to be indoors or outdoors.
Arrangements for private study and/or customized events at your location may be made. Visitors are welcome to participate in events and/or meet Lynn and the horses by appointment.

June TBA: Equine Inspired Custom Saddles with George Gullikson. Free educational talk and saddle fittings by appointment.

Dandi and every horse she tries the saddle on LOVES it and moves markedly freer/better due to significant design differences from what else is out there.
