EPONA: The Secrets of the Wild Horses

I am exited to announce that Anita and Caroline, both Eponaquest® Instructors, will host the first EPONA workshop “The Secrets of the Wild Horses” at our Eco Center in February 2018! A few years ago I read a few of Linda Kohanov’s books and found them fascinating. Right after reading “The Way of The Horse”…

The Gate Lesson

Some people and horses are not patient enough at the gate when moving from one place to another. Moving horses from the pasture to the stable can be a moment of stress instead of pleasure. Here is a lesson I would like to share with you. Let’s say you are moving two horses from a…

2017 – Fifty, Fat and Finished….or

Fifty, Fit and Fantastic? Starting the new year, I realized I am going into my fiftieth year and I had to make some new decisions to be better fit for riding. The first one was to shred some weight that had sneaked on in 2016 and the second was to once again exercise my riding…

Learning a New Language

Jack and Stina

Walking a horse

This month’s blog is from Isa who is a working student at Stina’s center in St. Vincent. “I’ve been in contact with horses for my whole life. I’ve always been passionate, loving, and willing to do good in general and even better with horses. I’ve been riding, training, grooming them for such a long time…

Building communication with your horse

Learning to connect with wild horses taught me many new lessons such as, clear, quiet and focused body language, to listen to my breath, to adjust the tone of my voice and have an increased awareness of my thoughts. I also learned how different my horses were. Some of my horses needed stronger body language while some would…
