SCCHA Members Monthly meeting & discussion 

Tuesday Sept 21, 6:30pm via Zoom

Guest Speaker:  Jen Berz - Equine Assisted Coach

We know how horses add so much fun, excitement and joy to our lives. We just love how they make us feel! Join our next meeting and learn more about how horses are playing a big part in healing and transforming people’s lives through coaching and equine facilitated learning. 

Our guest speaker this month is Jen Berz, a certified equine assisted coach who helps people expand personal awareness, improve relationships with themselves, and open their minds to new perspectives so they can experience healthier and more fulfilling lives. Through a coaching conversation and guided activities with a horse, clients come away with more clarity about who they really are and what they really want while exploring possibilities with the magnificent horse. Jen will share how she works with clients, some examples of their breakthroughs, as well as how this work has completely transformed her relationship with her own horses.

The club recently got an emergency request from The California State Horsemen's Association: the location CSHA had been working on for months became unavailable due to fires in the Sierras; could we accommodate this year's Trail Trials State Championship? The board acted quickly to help our fellow equestrians by providing a venue for their event. We expect 60 horses and their families at the showgrounds, filling the campground/paddocks and enjoying our beautiful trails in Henry Cowell State Park September 23-26.

Day Use parking by the tie rail and both arenas will remain open for members during this busy weekend.

All paddocks are reserved for this event.
