Horse Play for Families

With Oriane Lee Johnston

July 16 - 19, 2020

This program has been cancelled. You may be interested in Earth Wisdom, Horse Wisdom: A Nature Retreat with Horses with Oriane Lee Johnston and Kera Willis on September 11 – 14, 2020.

Find details on Hollyhock’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic here.

Observing and listening to horses is the first step in making friends with them. Practice body language and energy, both quiet and active, as the keys to respectful communication.

Learn hands-on grooming, how to halter and lead, and play joyfully in the field with the horses – with self-assurance, healthy boundaries, and empathy. Activities are on the ground, rather than riding, to build relationship skills and confidence.

For everyone who longs to get close to a horse safely. For kids, 9 and up, with an adult. Limited to 12 participants.

Horses respond to honesty in people…Such privileged communication creates an empathy and understanding with the horse, for yourself and with all living creatures human and otherwise. – Devon J.

Oriane Lee will also be offering Earth Wisdom, Horse Wisdom: A Nature Retreat with Horses on Sept 11-14, which will be for adults only.
