September 28 and 29 Lessons and group activities:
9 am we begin with a group activity for both participants and auditors.
2 private lessons in the morning, 4 in the afternoon with an hour for lunch.
We have a diverse group of participants. Lessons may be with or without a horse, mounted or unmounted. Focus on building our capacity to assess, address, adapt and progress in our journey with our horses. From building our own confidence and movement aptitude to doing ground work, body work and therapeutic movement with our equine partners. I want to help you understand how to build a mutually beneficial partnership with your horses!

A little more about our lesson days:
Tango with Horses is an invitation to embrace slow horsemanship. Slow horsemanship is a call to embody sustainable, ethical ways of relating to horses, to our own needs, and to the environment as a whole. This is an invitation to join the intimate dance of life going on all around us, gain access to instinct, intuition, and the confidence to follow our unique path.
We all have goals with our horses. From the getting to know you phase with a young or new horse, to solving problems with a long time friend, to reaching the next level in our partnership...
The key to making progress is first, knowing where to begin.Then, how do we break our goals down into steps that foster efficient, healthy movement? How do we progress in a way that builds confidence, trust and mutual enthusiasm for our shared experience?
Successfully progressing depends upon our ability to adapt to what is presented from moment to moment. Adaptability is a skill we can develop that opens us to our intuition, our creativity, and connection to ourselves, our horses and the environment we move through. On a deeper level we improve our movement ability in functional ways that help us age better, retain our independence longer and have better quality of life.
We’ll spend time on a wide array of topics that encompass what I call ‘Slow Horsemanship’ or ‘Tango with Horses’. Students are invited to embody the skills one needs to be a compassionate, effective horse person by developing tools that can be used in all of life, not just with your horses.
Private lessons can be customized to suit the needs of participants. We'll apply the core concepts of progressions and adaptability to whatever presents: body work, ground work, work in hand, riding, and of course, developing our own body awareness, sensory awareness and movement aptitude.
