What can we learn about ourselves in the presence of horses? This experiential, hands-on workshop is aimed at helping you focus on balancing your life, becoming grounded, and revisiting what matters most to you. Join us to see what you can learn about yourself through interactions with our equine staff of two to three ponies. All activities are un-mounted (no riding), and no previous horse experience is necessary. Since horses are flight animals, they have a keen awareness of their surroundings and are masters at living in the moment. These sentient beings have strong social connections and approach life in a non-judgmental and grounded manner, responding to what happens in the present. With the demands of daily life, as humans we often lose sight of these abilities.
In this workshop, you will interact with the ponies in structured activities, practice grounding and centering exercises, and have fun while enjoying the beauty of nature outdoors. This workshop aims to help you reconnect with yourself, enhance your self-awareness, and empower you to use this in daily life. Allow yourself to remember what matters in your life and live with intention and congruence. What can horses teach you?
