Horse Sense for Women™

Like poetry itself, the relationship between women and horses is wide, deep and complex; a journey comprised of both history and myth.

This 4- month program is designed to incorporate practical, life enriching skills with magical thinking, powerful metaphors and synchronistic moments born from the horse’s natural wisdom.

One of the many advantages of working with the horse is that the feedback it gives does not come through the filter of language. Part of the healing power of this work is that it brings participants out of their heads and into intimate connection with nature to inspire, teach and enlighten. Equine activities are facilitated on the ground, relevant to real life situations, creating a powerful and unique program offering endless possibilities for self- awareness and personal development.

Horse Sense for Women™ Promises:

(the magical ingredient is the spirit of the horse)

  • Develop and Implement Practices for Self -Care
  • Learn to Stay the Course for Dreams, Visions and Goals
