Change Starts with Education
Making a positive difference to the lives of Horses starts by educating our children to communicate, care and enjoy the animals through natural & creative interaction without the pressure of competitive influence. Inspiring children to open their awareness to kind & thoughtful Horsemanship will empower them to become responsible, compassionate adults.
Students will develop awareness towards the nature of the Horse which will then progress into a deeper connection and understanding. Safe handling of the equipment and working with the Ponies from the ground will be introduced, students will become confident, learn to seek inner tuition and develop a physical and mental balance, Horses really can teach all this and more!
Our lessons provide students with a wide variety of knowledge about the nature of the Horse in ground work exercises, in the saddle and in the unique language of the Horse, therefore riding is not the focal part of our practice.
We provide a fun and stimulating environment to encourage imagination, sense of feel and independence. Grooming and preparation before and after riding is introduced to the students so they understand the responsibilities they have as a Horse person when attending to the needs of the Ponies.
*Grooming, Preparation of Pony and after care is included within the tuition.

Dance with Unicorns
Everything we do with our Horses is essentially a Dance between two beings, we interact, move, feel, imagine, create, be present, and have complete awareness for each other. Horses will teach you how to become balanced in mind and body, feel everything around you and give you first hand experience of the natural rhythm and timing born to these magnificent creatures, all you need is an open mind.
Participants are encouraged to creatively interact with the Ponies through Movement, Dance, Basic Yoga Poses, Visualization and Music from the ground and from the Pony's back. This class is beneficial for keeping the body flexible and strong, it allows students to mentally connect with the Pony using meditation, breathing and fun visualization techniques, it opens a person's awareness to feeling and 'being' in the present, it also teaches a great deal of patience.
This class is ideal for participants aged 6 - 13. No prior Dance or movement experience is necessary. Participants should bring with them a soft pair of slipper type footwear (eg Ballet Slipper or something similar), light weight trainer/pump and comfortable non - restricting clothing suitable for movement. Most of the moves on the Pony are performed barefoot in warmer conditions.
