Experience Sessions

Experience Sessions

For many people, owning a horse just isn’t practical or possible, but they yearn for the bonding experience, the unique power of working at liberty with a horse and just to… smell the animals!

Our unique Experience Sessions mean that everyone can experience the joy and connection of horses. We have two horses specially chosen for this.

Dolly – herd leader, the veteran of the yard, this little mare likes to see how far she can boss you about. She will frisk you for treats, enjoys a good scratch and is a specialist at teaching people to experience long reining.

Dylan – the sensitive Welsh cob who came to us as uncatchable and nervous. He trains people to control their own energy levels, shows you how to bond with a horse and will astound you with his level of trust.

Rainbow – the smallest of the crew at only 10hh, the oldest in her mid 30s, and the one with a lot to say. Undeniably the most tricky of the three to understand, once you start to bond with her she is affectionate and brings about a great sense of calm.

Our sessions are either 30 mins, 1 or 2 hours long.

Typically they can include some of the following:-

  • Meeting and greeting a horse
  • Controlling a horse through body movement
  • Grooming, equine massage and ‘buddying up’ with a horse
  • Arena work, including working at liberty, ‘join-up’ and controlling a horse at a distance using only your body language
  • Herd observation – peaceful guided observation of herd dynamics and what we can learn from horses. All sessions are on-to-one. We do not work with groups.
  • Horse Agility
    Each session is tailored to you personally, whether you want to re-energise through activity, de-stress through mindful observation of yourself and the horses or discover the power of your body language. Non-ridden sessions have a lot to offer to any person!

Price £25 per hour

We also work with people who have difficulties with mobility etc. Being in a wheelchair is fully accepted, and we have clients referred by Occupational Health professionals. Work with these folk is the same as above. Carers are welcome, and if interested, carers (or any health professionals) are invited for a one to one session for themselves to fully understand the physical and mental processes that are going on.
