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.

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.

For many years Dominique has had the great pleasure to share his knowledge with many people of all levels in their horsemanship. A number of aspiring professionals and mature professionals have studied with him for decades and we are pleased to support their efforts and value our collaboration.

In response to a number of inquires about our co-author for The Alchemy of Lightness, Dr. Maria Katsamanis, Barbier Farms is offering this information for clarity: Dr. Katsamanis’ valued input for The Alchemy of Lightness was to gather and assemble the wealth of scientific evidence that is emerging to support the consciousness and teaching of the methods of Molecular Equitation©(2010). Dominique has developed this these concepts and offered them to his students for more than 40 years. We are exceedingly grateful to Dr. Katsamanis for her input.

Barbier Farms has no association with clinics or training that is offered by anyone that has not studied with Dominique for considerable time.  If you are interested in hosting a clinic to deepen your relationship with your horse and create a more brilliant, harmonious relationship with your equine partner, please contact us for available dates.

With gratitude and respect for all our students, for open hearts and minds, and especially for our teachers…our horses,

Dominique and Debra Barbier
