Animal experience hosted by Trish

2 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will meet and greet all of the horses and learn a little about each of them. Throughout the day guests will work with several horses in a group setting. Participants will learn what "Natural Horsemanship" means as they observe the herd dynamics and learn how horses think and talk to each other through non-verbal communication. As you become immersed in the horse's world of communication you will begin to understand how that relates to our own human experience of non-verbal communication.

Participants will engage in various activities with the horses giving them a chance to learn life lessons in communication, assertiveness, boundaries, building relationship & more. Horses are honest and non-judgmental and invite us to be as well. Participants will take away a new knowledge of the intelligence and ability of these great animals to read our thoughts and feelings and mirror them back to us. This time with the horses is as unique as each guest. No one will go away untouched by their beauty. There is no riding. All activities are on the ground. Liability releases must be signed before participating. The length of this experience may vary according to the group size.

I've been passionate about horses since I rode my first pony at the age of 12. I have worked with horses on my farm for over 45 years and have bred, raised, trained and raced thoroughbred horses. I have been teaching people natural horsemanship and how to connect with horses since 2008 and have been teaching Equine Assisted Learning since 2009. I am a Certified Life Coach and Certified EAGALA Professional. My greatest joy is to share my love of horses with others and allow them to experience the overwhelmingly touching moment when a horse truly connects in relationship with them.

This was an amazing experience! I have been around horses since I was a child, but I feel like I learned more in a few hours with Trish and her horses, than I've learned my whole life. She answered all my questions and made me understand horses in a new way. Also she send me more material about natural horsemanship, so I definitly want to learn more.

I am not a horse person, but felt called to spend time with them. I really enjoyed my time with the horses and Trish. I appreciated Trish's ability as a guide in asking the right questions and providing insight that would help me tap deeper into my own inner wisdom. Interacting with the horses was very therapeutic-i felt more connected to myself when i left. i will return without a doubt!
