Hello Friends,

Debra and I have just returned from Brasil where visited all the breeding farms and attended the International Lusitano Expo in Sao Paulo….at a new venue! The facility at the Hipica Paulista was tremendous, but it was even better to see old friends and the progression of the young horses we saw last year and the year before. Rocas do Vouga was named Best Breeder for the 5th year in a row. Congratulations to Manuel, Thereza, Raul, Carlos, Edneu, and all the team for Rocas do Vouga! 

After a clinic in New Jersey, we’ll be headed to Portugal with our guests for the Festival in Golegã! Click on the link above to see what you will be missing. This way you’ll be sure to plan to join us next time!!!

We’ve added dates in December for our clinics….have a look at the Clinic tab above. I’m looking forward to seeing friends old and new in Chicago, Colorado, and Minnesota! If you are interested in hosting a clinic for 2015, please be in touch! Dates are limited and the calendar fills quickly. And we have announced the date for the February Symposium…our 10th in the Classical Series. Click the tab above (February Symposium) for all the information.

Until then….Amities….DB

We had the pleasure to host our 9th Symposium over the weekend of October 10-12. We had a  lovely turnout with lots of new auditors and a few new horse and rider combinations. We were pleased to welcome a group of our regulars as well and most pleased to note their progress!

Topics for the lectures included working with the sensitive horse, refining lateral movement, channeling energy into rhythm, and from Dominique’s Alchemy, greater discovery of Be, not do. We had great participation and insightful questions from auditors…and this is always the best part! Well, perhaps after the champagne reception and dinner it is the best part. We had great French Orgue d’Barbary music and some Gypsy guitars and singers to entertain us!

For our next symposium, our 10th!, we’re inviting registered participants to email their questions and we’ll devote an entire lecture period to exploring their topics and answering the questions.

Enjoy the gallery below and make plans to be part of our next event. We’ve secured great rates at the Dry Creek Inn in Healdsburg. But the rooms won’t last long. The winter symposium is always heavily attended! The dates: February 20-22, 2015. See you soon! Click on the tab above to sign up.

 

 

Click on the Symposium tab at the top of the page to reserve your spot now! Great rates are in place at the Dry Creek Inn for Barbier Farm guests…but hurry, they will sell out quickly. The Winter symposiums are always the most attended. We’ll be posting updates about topics and special events during the symposium in the coming weeks.

We are excited to be gearing up for the Symposium that begins tomorrow. People have gathered from all over….some brought their horses for lessons, others brought enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn. It’s going to be great! Stay tuned next week for a wrap-up with pictures and more news.

Until then, have a look at the video that was created a few years ago. It’s an oldie, but a goodie. Then mark your calendars to join us next February for our TENTH CLASSICAL SERIES SYMPOSIUM!!!  February 20 ~ 22.
