What We Offer

Our mission is to bring people closer to horses, in more ways than just riding. We offer equine assisted mindfulness meditation with our 11 amazing horses. This can be done as a one-off session for individuals or groups.
We arrange walks with horses and for children we have lead rein rides where we spend time with the horses before and after the ride.

We can also teach you about positive reinforcement training and natural ways to keep your horse.

Although everything we do is done with the horses wellbeing as a priority, we do really look after our guests too. We also operate as a workshop space for instructors with accommodation on site. We are open for bookings for next year.
