 This program is about developing a deeper, safer and mindful relationship with horses.  


  We mix life skills with the art of Mindful Horsemanship.  

Through groundwork and riding skills our participants develop problem-solving skills, honesty, empathy, self-confidence, and independence that will be applied in their home and school lives.   

Children of all ages can benefit from mindfulness, the simple practice of bringing a gentle, accepting attitude to the present moment.

Learning how to connect and be the leader of a 1,500 pound horse is a great skill to develop self-esteem, responsibility and character, to name a few.

  When we understand horse’s nature, herd dynamics and energetic cues, we can develop a more aware approach to our horsemanship skills, with more curiosity and open mindedness.

  

As much as we need to be the teachers and leaders for our horses, the horses are equally leading and teaching us. Their responses, or responses to us, teach us about ourselves. Having a true connection with horses’ means developing the connection to ourselves, and in the process, our horse will shift by mirroring our actions. So, if you want your horse to be calm, you need to be calm; if you want your horse to be attentive, you need to be attentive; if you want your horse to be soft, you need to be soft.

Testimonial

 Alejandra Lara is an amazing teacher and I feel so lucky to have found her. I have been taking mindful horsemanship lessons from her a few times a week for the past seven months. I can’t describe how much it has changed my life. Since I was a kid I wanted to ride horses but just never had time to do it. I also was raised in a family with some drug addiction and have always had anxiety and this has helped me so much with my anxiety and I feel I am a much stronger and more confident person since starting with Alejandra. She knows so much but is able to give students the information in a really easy and understandable way. She is very very patient and I always feel like I can take my time and learn things at my own speed. Alejandra also teaches us about how to read the horses signs and signals and so it’s really much more than Horseback Riding. If you have ever had an interest in working with horses in any kind away you must try a lesson with Alejandra!  Julia C.
