Hello! I’m Cynthia. I would like to warmly invite you to join my herd of three to experience and learn all about the world of equus. My class is held on the piedmont of the most beautiful rolling hills overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains with my two beautiful and wise horses and a spunky mini-mule; Burrito. I’ve studied with some of the greatest natural horsemanship innovators of our time and developed my own art of horse whispering. My horses and I enjoy teaching others about their language, herd dynamics, and the fundamentals of being in their presence. We’ll also learn to groom, lead and care for horses. Join Merlin, Ruby and Burrito and I to learn all about the horse. It is a eye opening experience into their world.
