With a mix of disappointment and hope, due to Covid-19, the Montana Center for Horsemanship, in partnership with the University of Montana Western, has rescheduled the national conference, Of Horse, Human and Nature featuring Dr. Temple Grandin, other leaders in horsemanship and EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival to 2021. The new conference dates are September 9-11, 2021 in Dillon, Montana, headquarters for the international education center.
According to Janet Rose, who is coordinating the conference, “We felt it was important to have this event in person – with equine and human interaction. Given the challenge of travel and health concerns worldwide, we felt it best to set new dates in 2021.”
In preparation for the national conference as well as development of new education programs, workshops, and mini symposiums, the Montana Center for Horsemanship in Dillon, Montana, is expanding its facilities.
“Vital fundraising efforts continue as we develop state-of-the art classrooms, conference and meeting areas, an equine veterinary/research laboratory, expanded horse corrals and fencing, dining facilities and other resources at the international Natural Horsemanship Education Center,” according to Rose, who is Director of Development and Communications.
The expanded arena will be known as La Cense Method Natural Horsemanship at the Montana Center for Horsemanship and many of the facilities now under construction will be named by donors and sponsors.
“This international education center,” says Rose, “strives to fill an important niche in natural horsemanship education. We want to create unique and expanded education opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Our goal is to provide vital learning experiences that help horses and humans make the most of their respective lives, a key part of our mission.” Currently, MCH is home to the nation’s only Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Horsemanship in collaboration with the University of Montana Western.
“As we move forward to further establish MCH as a leading education and event center, the Montana Center for Horsemanship is planning a series of new programs and other events that focus on Natural Horsemanship in the 21st century, the Agriculture industry, including ranching, farming, outfitting and packing, and the life-changing impact of the horse.
In terms of Covid-19, we are following all health guidelines and recommendations. More details and plans will be announced soon.”
Rose adds, “In these challenging and uncertain times, horses help us get through and we will keep everyone updated on any new developments as we hope for everyone’s safety and health.”
