Getting Ready for Upcoming Film Shoot

Mark and Dusty have been enjoying a few days of rest following the Minnesota Horse Expo held in St. Paul. The expo was held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds April 23 - 25 with over 300 horses on the grounds.

This spring Mark and Dusty continue to be busy in preparation for the filming of two DVDs which will be sold at the International Equestrian Festival at the World Equestrian Games this fall. The Games will be held in Lexington, KY. The two DVDs will be entitled "Breaking the Language Barrier" and "Complete Trail Riding". The first DVD consists of Mark's unique training method which has baffled many equine clinicians and animal behaviorists for years. Mark talks to Dusty, and Dusty seems to understand. If you need to see it to believe it, just drop us a line and we'll let you know where Mark and Dusty will be appearing next nearest you!

Six riders will be joining Mark and Dusty in the beautiful forests of Northern Minnesota later this month for the filming of "Complete Trail Riding". The riders will be traveling from Arkansas and Chicago, trailering their own horses in. The group are looking forward to the scenic ride which will span a period of 5 days. During the excursion, riders will partake of Mark's life experience as an outdoorsman, tracker and wildlife behaviorist. Three of the riders have participated in previous instruction with Mark, while the others will be experiencing this great opportunity for the first time.

Not only will this be an opportunity for a great ride and a learning experience for the group, participants will also be filmed for the DVD, a television show, and participate in photography sessions for an upcoming book that will also be made available at the International Equestrian Festival this fall.

It's a busy spring, but we are all looking forward to meeting new friends, riding in new places, and the many great things to come in 2010!
