A big thank you to Sophie who organised my trip and for putting me up in her wonderful yurt at her lovely organic smallholding,www.portugalsmallholding.org. She also organised an Equine Touch demo and took me to visit various equines in need of some healing, including one horse who had fallen through a wooden floor, a lovely rescued mule and a lusitano stallion with a bad back. Everybody was very friendly and enthusiastic, and now want to learn some Equine Touch for themselves, bringing ET to portugal.
Sandra was my host in Lisbon, based at her livery yard and riding school,www.centrohipico.pt. The clicker training workshop went really well, leaving them inspired to teach their horses new things in a postive and fun way.Equine Touch meant I met more wonderful horses there, my favourite being Anke, a lovely dressage mare.
