Relieve stress and feel joy from horsepower, no need to ride
The ultimate horse experience. No riding needed. You will enter the realm of our horses in a private cozy section of the pasture. There we join with a group of 8 or less other people around a fire. One horse will be in our space and others around us. We will begin by getting in the moment and out of our busy minds. Then we will do a variety of self reflection exercises. Some will involve the horse, some on our own. Horses naturally want us to be balanced and happy. As we enter their space they seek to do just that. A way to think about this if you are scientific, our bodies naturally generate a vibration from our heart and all organs. When we are sick, stressed or unhappy this vibration is chaotic. The horses and I will get you back to a healthy frequency. If you follow the belief in chakras I have one horse in particular that works on balancing those. Overall you will leave with a beautiful peace and clear direction of what you need to do in any area of challenge in your life. No experience necessary.
