Horses, Heart and Spirit

Women’s Group - Ongoing

A circle of women and a herd of horses come together to explore on what has heart, spirit and meaning for us at this time in our lives.

There is no horse riding, this is about relationship and we all have our feet on the ground.

Join our daytime group which herds up weekly beginning February 4 Wednesday afternoons from 1:15-3:15 pm.
Beginning May we will meet in the mornings 9:00-11:30 am.
The evening group meets once a month, Tuesday March 17, April 28, May 19, from 6:30-8:30. We will spend time together outside in nature, in the covered arena or inside the cottage as Mother Nature and we decide.

Fee: $30.00 per day or evening.

You can attend sessions individually and attend as you can but please reserve your place in the herd for each day/evening you will be attending by e-mailing Jackie at Jacalynstevenson@gmail.com.
