Do you know who's been busy during the pandemic?
An international clinician and creator of the SURE FOOT® equine stability program, Wendy has been using her stay-at-home time to interview DOZENS of equine experts.
And I'm honored to be one of them!
In the webinar, we discuss how the Feldenkrais Method® can improve equine athletic performance.
And to deepen your connection and partnership with your horse.
And so much more.
