SANGERVILLE, Maine – Is your horse pushy on the ground, lacking focus & attention, kicking out, bucking and rearing during ground work, refusing or bucking under saddle, disrespectful, fearful or untrusting, struggling to communicate, needs some fine tuning under saddle?

Natural horsemanship focuses on establishing attention, respect, trust, and communication with your horse.

Attend this free demonstration by Ron Johnson Jr. of R Jay’s Farm in Embden and watch him work through these issues with several horses using his own style of Natural Horsemanship from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 17 and 18, at 348 Douty Hill Road.

Observation is free, and you will take home some new ideas and insights to help you work with your own horse.

There will also be a used tack sale to benefit First Light Farm Equine Shelter in Perry, Maine (a registered 501c non-profit organization).

Questions about Equine Nutrition? A representative from Bob’s Hardware in Dover Foxcroft will be on hand to provide information on the variety of Nutrena and Blue Seal feeds they carry in their store.

Plenty of parking space — please drive slowly to be considerate of the horses on the property & for the safety of the other guests. Please bring your own lunch & lawn chair. Event held rain or shine.

A lemonade & refreshment stand will be operated by area children to benefit First Light Farm Equine Shelter.
