What you'll do

Learn how horses assess and communicate with humans, taught by the horses themselves. We have been offering this experience on AirBnB Travel since 2017 with 170 5-star experience reviews: "The horses were all friendly and came to greet us...Carrie doesn’t just put you on the horse and ride like most places. She will teach the guest about how to read the horse, proper communication with the horse, etc. -Kevin" "Carrie’s Farm was an amazing experience for my granddaughters as they live in a city. They interacted with beautiful horses... Carrie was communicative, helpful, friendly, and made us feel at home. -Anastasia" Your experience begins in the barn (please dress for the weather, expect manure/bugs/wildlife, moderate hill climbing) with a short orientation and bathroom break (outhouse). Then, if the horses have not already joined us, we go meet them in the field. You will by taught by one or more of the horses (their choice), hands-on, to experience communication. Be prepared for a potentially emotional experience. You cannot lie to a horse, and horses sense everything about your emotions. Guests are encouraged to take photos with the horses, and we are happy to assist. The experience ends in the barn for discussion. Total experience time is 1 hour.
Other things to note
As a working farm, there will be wildlife (including the slight possibility of snakes outdoors), insects, normal farm odors. There will be some horse and goat manure.

Where you'll be

We normally meet with the horses in the large barn to allow for private space to explore communication. We may also take a walk into their outdoor environment to enjoy the view and watch their interactions.
