WHEN: Friday, September 6, 2013, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

WHERE: Northfield Farm, 8368 Hwy 7 Rockwood, Ontario. N0B 2K0

BACKGROUND: Lichman’s show is improvisational. Although there are specific things the horses know, the horses have a say in what happens, depending on how they are feeling. The result is a display of affection, bonding and respect. By asking instead of telling them to do things, Lichman puts his relationship with the horse above all else. “I try to help people connect with horses so that it’s fun for both the human and the horse,” said Lichman.

Lichman’s lifelong passion for helping humans and horses has inspired him to collaborate with equine organizations worldwide. His first encounter with Equine Guelph was with researcher Dr. Jeff Thomason, a leading expert in measuring stress in the hoof. Lichman was intrigued with the future research applications that could be made with the ability to electronically measure and quantify stress applied to the hoof. He is excited to be able to donate fifty percent of the proceeds of the one and only Canadian show date on his tour to Equine Guelph.

Equine Guelph was founded in 2003 and is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of horses with their online programs for horse owners and caregivers. Online programs range from general interest short eWorkshops on practical topics to comprehensive courses of study leading to an accredited Diploma in Equine Studies. Financial support of Equine Guelph also helps fund groundbreaking work that is making a significant difference in the lives of our horses. Gifts to Equine Guelph help horses through research, education, performance and healthcare.
