What you'll do

A brief but inspiring discussion on meditation and why we do it with horses will motivate you to be dedicated and vigilant in your practice.

Then we go and meet the horses and I will teach you the basics in animal meditation. Then we groom the horses; this is the best way to get the horses to accept you as herd members as they bond by grooming each other.

As we start to meditate, the more stable, connected and balanced the client, the easier it is for the horse to step into his role of soothing, regulating, teaching and inspiring with his gentle and peaceful energy.

Often the horses will lie down and we can get down on the grass with them and be close and connected. We work on touching the horses in specific areas and watching for significant reactions to detect connection.

There is often an opportunity to test your connection by asking the horses to follow you without a lead and then you can take a little walk together.

We often finish with a beautiful guided meditation which will be chosen depending on the specific needs of the client.

We always end the session with gratitude and a big horsey cuddle.
Other things to note
In the summer there may be flies. Bring sun hats and sun cream. Wrap up warm and water proof on winter and please wear wellies or firm boots. No experience of horses or meditation needed but please arrive with an open heart and an open mind.

As seen in the BBC, ITV and The Sunday Times; I am a therapist and meditation teacher and I use animals and nature to inspire, soothe regulate and teach my clients. I have studied and loved horses my whole life and dedicated myself to studying Yoga, meditation and Eastern Philosophy. I have travelled to India and Bhutan to learn from the masters. Having spent hundreds of hours meditating with my own horses, in nature, and studying their behaviour and my own self growth, I've constructed the perfect formula for intense relaxation that will benefit the health of your mind, body and soul. I am a votary of happiness and believe, the more happy and connected people are, the better the world will be as a whole.

What a magical experience! I was a bit sceptical at first but you can really see how in tune the horses are to our feelings. Katherine really knows her stuff in regards to meditation. She has such a soothing voice and her whole demeanour immediately puts you at ease. Really felt lucky to able to get so intimate with these majestic creatures. I'd 100% recommend!

A fantastic experience that I would highly recommend. Katherine tailored the meditative exercises to the group needs but also embraced everyone as individuals. The location is both beautiful and tranquil. It was a pleasure spending time with the horses and listening to Katherine’s knowledge of them. Overall a truly wonderful experience.

Katherine and her horses create a magical and deep experience. I can't think of a better way to spend a couple of hours. I felt safe and challenged at the same time and would love to come again one day!
