Conscious Connection to Love, through horses

 Since 2000

Horse Back Riding Sessions  We are situated on a soulful, peaceful  550 acres, we learn to ride top-of-the-line horses and enjoy the land at the same time. 

Our Philosophy – We want children to ride in nature, be free and have fun on well trained, educated and experienced horses.  

Our Horses – Three times a week we lunge the horses and work them in-hand in ‘Stress-Free Dressage’.   This is a HorseBoy (TM) technique which engages thier brains and helps build a strong, loving connection between trainer and horse.

Adults – Also learn whilst riding out on the land.  However, we do spend more time on the lunge line in our all-weather arena learning to walk, trot and canter to music.  You learn to energetically connect with yourself and the horse while using Sally Swift’s ‘four basics’.  You can then progress to Dressage moves such as side-pass, travers and spanish walk.

Our horses are our family horses when they aren’t teaching and doing therapy – we are riding them as a family, i.e. not green or bored, but well trained in most horse abilities and interested in their lives and loved.

The Kids Are Alright Fest

WoW!! we just had a most loving and moving experience at TKAAF with 100’s of hipsters, skating and gaming peeps and all these amazing kid and adult musicians – all in some way or other donated to our cause.  We are still receiving checks and as it is now we have the money to:

Buy two Christ Saddles from Germany (they have waved the postal fee)

These are the best therapy saddles out there for our needs I am soooo excited.  We will all use of them as they build core stregth, connect us to horses energetically and physically via their erganomic design and the piles of sheep skin help us stay on out in the trails.

We have so much tack we need and bits of this and that to make things safer and easier, daisy reins (stop Willy and Cherry eating grass now the Spring is here) nice girths for the horses so they don’t get pinched.  Bigger wheel barrow with tyres that don’t puncture etc

Once I buy what we need I will post all we spent on what so that everyone donating can see where their money goes to.

I am so very grateful…

Just to explain how it used to work here when we needed money for ongoing education and tack etc – I would raise money by selling my paintings and then put what would be my wages back into the business from the full paying Conscious Rider students for Classical riding and sessions for EAGALA and Horseboy Therapies.  It seemed allot easier that way but tax season is upon us and I needed to save for the taxes when I was lucky enough to meet with a business woman who advised me to stop putting my ‘wages’ money back into the biz and fund raise.  So thanks to Band Aid School of music and TKAAF – the funds we needed for the saddles and other essentials has been raised, I’m so touched and grateful.
