ACROSS THE INDUSTRY
EXPERT ANIMAL TRACKER, WILDLIFE BEHAVIORIST MARK PETERSON TO APPEAR AT INTERNATIONAL EQUESTRIAN FESTIVAL
Best known for his unique training and communication methods with horses and his work on the popular History Channel show MonsterQuest, wildlife behaviorist and horse trainer Mark Peterson will be providing attendees of the International Equestrian Festival with a truly special form of entertainment and education.
Peterson, along with his one-of-a-kind horse Dusty, will hold demonstrations at the International Equestrian Festival, which will take place from Sept. 25-Oct. 10 at the Lexington Convention Center. Horse Capital Productions, a Lexington-based company, is producing the International Equestrian Festival.
Dusty has been called “the smartest horse in the equine industry today.” A special horse with the ability to learn by demonstration, Dusty can learn a new skill “on the spot.” Dusty has appeared with Peterson in shows across the country, giving demonstrations that have included bartending and retrieving items on command. He particularly enjoys giving kisses to children and signing autographs.
Along with his work on MonsterQuest, Peterson is also known for teaching equestrians a new way to communicate with their horses. He hosts his “Adventure Clinics” throughout the United States, with topics such as “Breaking the Language Barrier” and “Extreme Trail Riding.”
“Mark and Dusty are a wonderful addition to the growing list of attractions at the International Equestrian Festival,” said Kimberly E. Brown, Horse Capital Productions’ founder and managing partner. “Their demonstrations are highly valuable and entertaining, and perfect for equestrians of all ages.”
Peterson and Dusty will be performing twice a day during the 16-day festival.
“I’m thrilled to be attending the International Equestrian Festival,” said Peterson. “The venue is going to be the largest to date in the U.S. and I’m very excited about presenting to these folks.”
