On September 10, 2016, the Canadian Horse Journal and Hay…Girl! will host Dr. Juliet M. Getty at Greystone Stables in Delta, British Columbia for two programs focused on empowering the horseperson with exactly that knowledge:
Morning Seminar: Making Your Horse’s Health a Reality (9-11 a.m.)
This talk will center on how to view the horse as a whole animal and appreciate how his/her physical and mental state impacts performance and behavior. The horse’s body is capable of guarding against and healing itself of many diseases and conditions when offered the support it requires. Dr. Getty’s approach is logical and easy to understand.
Afternoon Workshop: Empowerment with Numbers (1-3 p.m.)
Participants will become comfortable with the numbers in a hay analysis report, feed label, and supplements’ analysis chart. They will learn about the proper ratios between minerals and comprehend how hay fits into the horse’s entire diet. Dr. Getty will also teach how to determine if the horse’s intake of sugar/starch is appropriate and how to assess the actual protein content the horse is consuming and what it means for his health and specific needs. This is a hands-on workshop aimed at teaching participants to work with ease with percentages, milligrams, grams, and parts per million. (Participants should bring a calculator.)
To reserve a spot and get more information, contact Pam at Hay…Girl! (www.haygirl.ca) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-961-7265. The cost is $40 for the morning presentation or $70 for both. Lunch is included in full-day registration. A minimum number of paid participants is necessary for the event to be held; the reservation deadline is August 20.
