September 5….Horse Whispering at Copper Breaks State Park - Horses are still important and needed in Texas. Even in this modern world, historical techniques and even ancient methods are still in use. Horse trainer and whisperer Larry Hannon will demonstrate how to use an ancient system to understand a horses’ personality to train and work with that horse. “The ancient Chinese had a system which identified behavior traits and linked them to the elements of wood, earth, fire, metal, and water,” Hannon said. “And once you can identify the traits, you can figure out how to work with those traits and work with just about any mammal.” Hannon’s program will begin at the park headquarters. Then he will lead participants in an unusual version of “Meet the Longhorns” as he applies the techniques to the park’s longhorns and helps the visitors understand the different personalities in the herd. Horse Whispering at Copper Breaks is one of an ongoing series of campsite programs which are free with regular park admission of $2.00 for adults. For more information on Copper Breaks State Park or park programs, call 940-839-4331 during regular business hours.
