You come to our lovely farm in Andalucia and choose your horse for your holiday. All our horses are in rehab following rescue, and a big part of their recovery is learning that humans can be fun as well as trustworthy.

Tai Chi for Horsemanship with Kate Roux

There are three elements to this course. Firstly, you work on the ground, away from the horse, to develop your own posture, balance and breath control. Then you go and work with our horses. We teach you easy practices on breathing, balance and movement, which have a considerable influence on your horse.

And thirdly, we reward the horse for responding to your changes and looking for connection with you. You don’t have to be perfect, just practice and the horse will do his best to tune into what you intend. It’s magic!

My Journey Horse with Maggie Roux

On this weekend, we explore the journey horse in our lives. Led by a highly experienced and empathic tutor, Maggie Roux, we explore our life’s journey through identifying archetypes which have most relevance to us. These are the roles and characters that we and others adopt as we live our life stories.  Each archetype has its strengths and its weaknesses and its appropriate and inappropriate uses. Unused archetypes are like treasures buried inside of us, waiting to be discovered.
