“Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.”
BUCK, a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Brannaman as he teaches people to communicate with their horses.

Monday, July 17, 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Equestrian Connection, 600 N. Bradley Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045
Meet the horses. Enjoy refreshments. Watch the film.

Equestrian Connection of Lake County and the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Cook County North Suburban invite you to an evening of Equine-Assisted Therapy.
