The focus of an exhibition is on Van’s demonstration of horsemanship concepts and techniques, rather than on education through verbal teaching. If you are hosting a special event, county fair horse show, equestrian event, exposition, or other, our training exhibition will prove to be an effective attention-getter and boost the attendance of your function.
Special events might include:
We have tons of ideas for how Van’s unique skills and style can be put to work to enhance your event. Contact Us for more information!
Other events in which brief training sessions or exhibitions are desired
As part of Van’s ongoing commitment to new and innovative ways of communicating the ideas he’s so passionate about, we’ve developed the all-new “The Horse is My Teacher” retreats. Designed as a more intimate group experience, the retreats are a true horsemanship-focused getaway. Participants bring their horses and enjoy a true retreat experience, tailored to the participants’ specific needs and interests — small-group instruction on a variety of horsemanship skills, trail rides with Van (where facilities permit), “classroom” sessions where Van shares the lessons that horses have taught him about “human-ship,” and campfire discussion and sharing times. Retreats may be scheduled for any period from a long weekend to a week long event and may be open to the public or exclusively for members of a sponsoring club or organization.

A gifted speaker, Van does not need to have a horse nearby in order to educate, entertain, inspire, and motivate. Van is available to speak to groups of any size, from a local 4H club’s monthly meeting to a civic group luncheon to a major organization’s annual convention. The available topics are as limitless as your imagination. Van particularly enjoys and excels at tying the principles behind his horsemanship approach to everyday life. Contact Us to see how Van’s dynamic speaking presence can help make your event a success.
