EQUIKEN® Workshop is Back On!

You all know the famous quip by W.C. Fields:

“Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.”

Even as we head into the second half of 2020, that observation seems more apt than ever. How did basic public health become a divisive issue? If you were a horse, would you bet on us humans to get on top of this disease? We wish we could say the trends in the United States were as promising as the trends in Europe. Alas, that’s not the case.


While we wait for a vaccine and improved treatments for COVID-19, all we can do is plan for a day when we return to a semblance of normalcy.

To that end, the six-day EQUIKEN® workshop will begin Sunday, Nov. 1 at the Anatomy in Clay® Centers in Denver. Yes, that’s four months away but note that early registrants save $150 off the course fee through Sept. 1. (More detail below.)

Note: All prescribed COVID-19 precautions will be taken with separate workstations for all participants (including plenty of space between stations to maintain personal distancing) and a schedule that allows for thorough, regular cleaning.

Horse enthusiasts, horse trainers, artists, vet techs, veterinarians, riding instructors, breeders, and horse massage therapists are invited to this six-day workshop. Workshop participants will build the majority of equine musculature in clay on a scale model of the horse, using the EQUIKEN® models from the Anatomy in Clay® Learning System.

This workshop was originally scheduled for late March but postponed due to national “stay at home” orders in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The EQUIKEN® CoreData™ 1 Workshop runs all day (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) beginning Sunday, Nov. 1, through Saturday, Nov. 7 with a day off Thursday (Nov. 5). The classes will be led by Anatomy in Clay® instructor and founder Jon Zahourek.

The workshop will be held at the non-profit Anatomy in Clay® Centers in Denver, 2201 S. Delaware St., conveniently located adjacent to the Evans Station on the city’s light rail system.

And here’s a bonus feature—the classes are presented in partnership with EQUINOLOGY, Inc.; continuing education credit hours are available through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).

The cost of the workshop is $1,350 for registrations received by Sept. 1, 2020. Registrations after that date are $1,500 and are requested by October 1.
