Horses can offer us so much. All your defences melt away and time dissipates when you spend time with these special creatures. Each session is so incredibly unique and highly attuned to your needs.
Working with horses to be the best version of ourselves
Equine Assisted Learning Session
1.5 hours $150
This session is designed to support you through whatever you are navigating or working through in your life. The horses are free to roam in a tranquil garden area. There is ample opportunity to spend time with them. When you work with horses you can't help but be your authentic self. You become embodied, congruent and totally present.
I'll facilitate the structure of the session and tailor it to suit you and why you've come. This could be anything from anxiety, depression, grief to just spending some time with these remarkable creatures and getting back to feeling like you again.
During a session the horses may be haltered for you to work with one on one, groomed or sometimes even a mounted session can be offered. We just work with what unfolds during the session.
Equine Assisted Learning Session for Children & Teens
1 hour $90 / 1.5 hour $120
This is essentially the same session as above but shorter in duration and more affordable for families wanting to resource their children with this most unique and healing modality. If you are curious regarding one of these sessions for your child. The most common things we have worked with are anxiety, depression, personal boundaries, social anxiety, bullying, recovering from sexual abuse and irrational fears. The most prevalent part of the work is that everything we do and experience is related to how we can incorporate the learning into our everyday lives, providing great resourcing and life skills.
Equine Assisted Learning & Healing Session
2 hours $180
This session is the same as above, however, after the time spent with the horses, you'll move onto a massage table in the garden area. I will work on your body using reflexology on the feet and energy balancing techniques that are useful in supporting the physical body coming back into balance. As we are doing this, the horses may come and interact with us or stay further away. They are not tethered or enticed with food, it is totally up to them what they do. We take notice of their body language and can gauge when they are assisting us, as their cues are quite obvious to spot. They lick and chew, yawn, and go into a trance-like state when deep energetic work is occurring. It's very special.
Being with such magnificent animals with the most impeccable ability for stillness is incredible. When the herd are in that zone together, some fabulous high energy healing work is occurring. Typically, as we drop down more into stillness they will come closer.
They often help you release at a deeper level. What I know from this work is, they assist you in releasing what you no longer want to carry. They open hearts and bring clarity to what you want in your life. This is a potent healing experience that will leave you connected with yourself, your dreams and possibilities but equally grounded.
Guided Trail Rides in the Wombat Forest commencing in Trentham
2 hours $220
This is a magical experience, chosen for the beauty of the Wombat Forest and the sensational trails that are perfect for trail riding. The sense of peace that imbues this special area is incredible. When you finish you are a short walk or 2-minute drive away from Trentham and all this quaint town has to offer.
This is much more than a trail ride. We can incorporate many of the aspects that are usually covered in the equine & healing sessions. It is a personal empowerment session with a difference - on horseback. The higher price includes my pack-up and floating the horses from Woodend to Trentham and a refreshment stop half way through the ride. This can be arranged for 1 or 2 people.
This is a great experience for people who -
* Want to feel the power and magnificence of being on horseback
* Know you need help with your confidence or a self-esteem issue that is holding you back
* Want some help getting your mojo back
* Love the outdoors, forest, nature, however, have limited time to enjoy it
* Have an attraction to horses but feel too nervous to go on an organised trail ride.
* Would like an opportunity to get 'out of your head' and back into your body
* Used to ride but have lost your confidence
