" A Natural Way " and Other Wholistic Events

I am delighted to see that we at NHM are not the only ones going to mammoth efforts to organize a wholistic event. This spring will bring the second year for two such wholistic events in the USA , and if there are others springing up, we would love to know about them so we can help spread the word.

Our 2nd annual "A Natural Way" will be held again in Shartlesville, PA, April 23-25, rain or shine (it's indoors), for the benefit of rescue horses and all horses. Another Chance 4 Horses and Kathy George Animal Communication, teamed with Natural Horse Magazine, will host a spectacular Friday night demo by Dan Sumerel , and two great days of information-packed presentations and live demonstrations, including more from Dan, on Saturday and Sunday. Carol Brett of BALANCE Organisation is presenting, coming all the way from the UK . Again, Rich Miller has very generously donated his Mountain Springs Arena and Resort center, off PA Rt. 78, for the weekend. All presenters, planners, and volunteers are graciously donating their time and efforts for the benefit of horses, no matter what level or area of equine expertise.
