Come on in and connect to your deeper knowing - Inspired by horses, become embodied in your authentic truth.
In relationships we heal and grow. The horses in our program become the model for community and belonging.
Belonging to a community and fellowship of practice creates safety and allows each other to be authentically seen and accepted. This builds confidence in self and others.
I believe that connecting to nature brings us back to our own nature.
Breath, movement and mindful horsemanship connect us authentically with self, others, horses and the natural world.
Practicing Mindful horsemanship skills from the ground up and inside out, help create connection, balance, relaxation, fun and the capacity to be embodied in the world with all of our senses.
Attunement to self-others and nature brings us Healing.
Our approach develops embodied self confidence, awareness and pro-social skills.
By modeling their embodied experience in the world through their senses, horses allow us to practice the same skill of embodied presence and relationship - an understanding and lived experience that ripples into everyday life.
Rooted in our bodies and safety we can relate, create, and serve others.
Park City Horse Experience specializes in providing experiential equine assisted activities to build leaders and teams in a positive natural environment.
Through immersion with the sentience of horses and nature, the natural dynamics and qualities of your team and business are enhanced. Teams generate opportunities for significant, tangible change in performance, cooperation, communication, and leadership.
Horses teach leaders how to listen to what is not spoken, to trust their intuition, share their vision and to take embodied action for successful change.
By incorporating equines into leadership development, we learn that leadership is about our relational abilities.
Park City Horse Experience invites families to create connection by incorporating mindful horsemanship to foster open and honest communication.
Incorporating the unique relational nature of horses into each family dynamic, through engaging hands-on activities with the herd, creates confidence and provides metaphors for dealing with everyday family life.
Park City Horse Experience empowers each family member to step into their unique qualities to enhance the greater good of the family, authentically and transparently, while having some extreme fun!
Horses also help kids appreciate the positive aspects of being part of a group, such as family, friends, and classmates.
Park City Horse Experience guides you to come into alignment and connect with yourself through equine wellness practices.
Through mindful and ground based activities with horses as sentient beings, we design a nourishing environment to pause and reconnect to yourself.
Horses provide a transformational partnership, where you can become empowered to heal from the ground up and from the inside out, cultivating a steady inner wisdom, as well as a sense of belonging and connection. What you learn is important, however what you embody is priceless.
Embodiment, presence, intention, and attention are key aspects in achieving our goals and dreams
Throughout my life, horses have been a reliable bridge to myself, my culture, my lived experience and ultimately to my personal and professional purpose.
I have come to know that the most vital experience within the horse and human herd, is to connect and belong. To belong to yourself and to the greater world, is to expand and to thrive. Each and every day I get to share with my clients the deep spiritual connection that is possible through nature, horses, and community.
Horses bring us home to ourselves. I am committed to creating a space for each of my clients where this personal journey can be experienced by as many individuals, teams, and families.
To be alive is to experience hardship and struggle. I have had my share of each. As an immigrant from Chile and especially as a veteran’s mother - I have felt disconnected, isolated and anxious.
When I moved to Park City, from my native country, I did not speak the language or have a community for many years. I was lonely. While I could not speak English, I could speak “horse”.
Horses became a bridge, a way for me to connect and give back to the community and to create friendships. This connection allowed me to find my purpose. Ultimately, my purpose expanded into my lifetime work developing and sharing my personal practice of embodying the sentience of horses and the natural world to cultivate community and belonging.
I have explored and honed my relationship with horses for my entire life. Through my development and practice of mindfulness, I know that humans and horses have a natural bond that creates connection, presence, belonging and wellbeing.
My approach merges culture, ritual and the sentience of the natural world, in a unique way that allows participants to come into alignment with their wholeness, belonging and purpose. By partnering with equines, I invite my clients to become aware of their connection and innate belonging to themselves and the horse herd - an understanding and embodied experience that ripples into everyday life.
Through years of study and practice, I understand the body’s natural response to stress and trauma and how to create a healing environment with the horse herd. I meet humans and horses where they are, creating emotional safety within a supported space. The people I serve find healing from the ground up and from the inside out - cultivating a steady inner wisdom, as well as a sense of belonging and connection.
By opening the awareness of the body, we also become receivers of non-verbal information and subtle changes in our environment, and can feel the energetic boundaries horses and humans possess. When we develop a fully embodied awareness, we become authentic and able to honor our own bodies as a sensing device. We become more Horse like.
I have worked with other Equine Specialists and Therapists, both as a client and as a student of this work, and none compare with Alejandra. Her breath of knowledge of equines is unmatched, as is her understanding of the dynamic potential between horses and humans. She safely introduces clients into the horse herd, holds space for that synergy to evolve and gently guides her client towards an embodied human experience, where measurable healing can take place. Alejandra’s unique approach blends sentience, horsemanship, spirituality, mindfulness practices, science based therapeutic activities and somatic body to mind healing. I often joke that she will forget more than I ever know about horses, equine therapy and healing. Lucky for me that I get to regularly work with these profound catalysts of transformation: the horse herds and Alejandra Lara.

Our family had a wonderful Horse Experience !. Alejandra is the real deal horse whisperer. Her knowledge and personality connects with all ages. This experience is a must for young children or adults to learn how a little respect and understanding can create a unique space where ALL can benefit from the special relationship between a horse and a human.

My children and I had a wonderful experience with Alejandra! She shared a vision of interacting with horses and nature that is kind, perceptive, interactive and safe. My
kids started off a little unsure about these big, amazing animals - and left feeling confident, in touch, calm and happy! Thank you PCHE for such an incredible day!
My Horse Experience with Alejandra was indescribably powerful in its simplicity. I have struggled to find the right words to share my experience with friends and am left feeling that everyone must experience this for themselves. I was humbled by the horse's support and I was totally in awe of Alejandra’s ability to create and maintain a grounded and safe space to explore, connect and just be. You receive immediate feedback from the horse about where you are and what you are feeling – while being gently guided by Alejandra. My ability to process was exponentially faster. Incredible!
