“It’s all about the Horse” a new workshop series coming this spring and summer.
This workshop series is hosted by Nicole Birkholzer and part of her web show “Mindful Connections on the Red Sofa”. All events are created in collaboration with Blue Star Equiculture.
“Inspired by Jesse, our 33 year old Percheron, I created the Equine Wellness Expo in 2012. The Expo has evolved to be a bi-annual event, the next one is planned for spring of 2014. Knowing how much value our horses get from these practitioners, I felt that equine wellness professionals should be promoted throughout the year … and, why not support Blue Star Equiculture Draft Horse Sanctuary throughout the year”Nicole Birkholzer, Mindful Connections
That’s how the “It’s all about the Horse” workshop series was born. If you are a wellness oriented horse owner or caretaker, this workshop series is for you. Starting this spring experts in equine wellness are introducing you to their profession in a 3 hour interview/workshop series. The events are held at Blue Star Equiculture in Palmer, MA. Attend in person, or from any place in the world via Live Stream. Our calendar is updated with new additions all the time. Check it out, read the details and register right here.

October 2011 - By Michelle Woodward and Katie Landeck
Tethered to a trainer lecturing on proper horse care, Snowman, one of four draft horses working at the University of Massachusetts this year, pranced around the ring at Hadley Farm. A group of spectators watched him at the first Equine Wellness Expo this past Saturday.
The Expo featured workshops hosted by specialists in horse care on topics ranging from equine massage therapy, to animal communication, to modern approaches to traditional horse shoeing.
The event was coordinated by Nicole Birkholzer. She was inspired to create the Expo after adopting Jesse, a 34-year-old Percheron draft horse. She thought Jesse would have to be euthanized due to severe health problems, but with the efforts of several specialized horse practitioners Jesse was able to return to full health. Birkholzer was amazed by their abilities to aid him in his recovery.
