The Keys to a Horse's Heart

This two day retreat will open up the doors of communication between you and one of the mustangs. You will learn the Rituals that horses use in the wild to build relationships and herd harmony, to promote mutual understanding through clear communication and how to establish leadership.

While some may call this 'Horse Whispering' I see it as 'Horse Listening'. Like yoga or meditation, these guided exercises will teach you to focus, to listen to your intuition and to work in harmony with the horse. .Step by step you will be guided through a series of exercises which will build upon one another to establish you as a leader. You will also have the chance to watch others in their process and participate in the group discussion of the experience. Your relationship and understanding of horses will grow in leaps and bounds, and you will most likely have insights into your other relationships as well!
