The heart of horsemanship

Brooke Rempel shares insights during four-day horsemanship clinic in Quesnel

Horsewoman Brooke Rempel, who has spent several years training and apprenticing with Josh Nichol, was in Quesnel for four days to teach a horsemanship clinic Jan. 18-21 at Gamache’s indoor arena, focused on developing a deep connection between horse and rider.

Rempel’s philosophy is that the heart of horsemanship resides within a calm, centered connection between horse and rider.
