Horses are one of the most intuitive animals on earth - they have an uncanny ability to sense energy and body language in order to react immediately. Through this non-riding program, you will be introduced to ground skills that will help you develop self awareness, trust and a mindfulness of your actions that you can take out of the horse arena and into the real world. Must wear long pants and sneakers or boots. An additional fee will apply.
Yoga instructor (and certified equine manager) Alicia Shook has been working on developing the Unbridled Bliss program in partnership with Vanderbeek Farms. After running her own horse training stable for over 20 years, Alicia wanted to bring the practice to share with the guests at The Lodge at Woodloch. “Horses are incredibly intuitive,” explained Alicia, “as a prey animal, they rely solely on their intuition for survival. They have an uncanny ability to sense energy and body language in order to react immediately.” Through this program, guests will be introduced to ground skills that will help develop self-awareness, trust and a mindfulness of actions that can be taken out of the horse arena and into the real world.
