Horse Whispering in the Southwest

Join us for a weekend of hands-on Horse Whispering in the high desert town of Aztec; NM nestled at the foot of the San Juan Mountains. Your adventure with horses provides you an opportunity to work with horses and observe their culture, learn their language, and how to communicate with them. All while you stay in private on-site bungalow in a beautiful natural environment on the edge of Bald Mesa.

You will be engaging with the horses without force or dominance while being supported in a non-judgemental space by experienced facilitators. Horses by their natural biological makeup will be asking us to stay connected, authentic and mindful while we perform simple tasks with them. Trust in self and others, presence, integrity, and congruency, are all qualities horses will ask us as we become their co-creative partners, in this way the horses will become our teachers. There is no riding, and no previous experience with horses is necessary. These workshops and sessions can also be suitable for people who have a fear of horses; please contact us for further details.
