What you'll do

Discover the authenticity of the ancient horse/human partnership. This experience gives the opportunity to delve into the emotionally sensitive, empathetic nature of the horse-beyond the horseback ride. In this experience, we'll observe herd behavior; horse personalities; learn basic horse communication; participate in interactive empathy exercises about the use of the halter and lead rope as it relates to horse communication; intentional focus; then, implement the combination of these processes as you work with the haltered horse on lead rope; and finally, experience authentic partnership-relationship with the horse without lead ropes. The unbridled, reflective relationship-you can do this! Through these graduated steps, you will discover physical listening skills, the power of observation, balance between predatory and prey nature, and relationship insights are a few possibilities. Ultimately, the biggest take away in this event can be the unveiling of powerful insights about yourself. This experience can be tailored to fit your date & preferences individually or as a group from age 5 to adult; individuals; families; retreats; and business development. To stay on premise - go to airbnb Santa Fe, NM, guesthouses, and book Reflect Reinvent Ranch Casita on Turquoise Trail

Machel

I am a certified EAL (equine assisted learning) facilitator and coach, who's owned and cared for a small herd of Columbian Paso Finos, "the dancing horse", for over 20 years. Through exploring alternative ways to enjoy my horses, I discovered and learned the practice of natural horsemanship. I discovered horses are more than the ride; they are sentient beings who authentically connect to and mirror us in the moment! I founded Reflect Reinvent Ranch several years ago to share the joy, the connection, and the personal discoveries, which horses can give to each of us through ground activities. Individuals, families, businesses, educators, and choreographers are some who have enjoyed life enriching results through participating in the human/horse bond experience. Certifications: Natural Horsemanship, E3A, Eagala.
