October 6 @ 9:00 am - October 9 @ 5:00 pm$695
Join Heidi Columbus Day Weekend this Fall at the beautiful Stepping Stone Farm & Retreat Center in rural New Hampshire. Stay at the Homestead, a classic, charming, historic New England style farmhouse. Relax and unwind your evenings away while watching the sun set over nature’s bounty. Enjoy a healthful breakfast with friends each morning before starting your day.
Horse Speak, Centered Riding & Horse Agility combine to create a unique clinic experience for horses and horse lovers of all levels. Each day focuses on improving your understanding of what horses are saying, learning how to meet their needs, deepen rapport, and create enriching experiences for both horse and human.
Horse Speak Intro Day– Horses are always talking. This clinic day is focused on beginning to recognize their language system of gestures, postures, signals, and breath messages, so you can “hear” what they are saying. Learn how to enter into “First Conversations” and begin conversing with them in their own language. Guaranteed to take your horsemanship skills and all you do with horses to the next level. You will see horses differently from this day forward, that’s a promise!
Horse Agility/Obstacle Play Day Deepen your understanding of how best to support your horse, meet his needs and answer his most pressing questions, all while having fun. Horse Speak continues throughout this fun in-hand, skill building day of stress-free obstacle play. Skills learned will improve mutual trust, build confidence, and create a deeper connection with your equine friend.
Centered Riding Day– The CR Basics of Breathing, Centering, Balance and Soft Eyes, along with Grounding and Awareness, will lead you to improved security, comfort, confidence and connection in the saddle. The quiet, effective, communication between horse and rider begins to unfold when the Basics are applied, bringing you one step closer to riding in pure harmony.
Riders Choice Day– This optional day is for those who want a private or semi-private session with Heidi to expand on their retreat experience, or problem solve, either on the ground or in the saddle.
The goal of this retreat is to bring like-minded horse lovers together with the goal of creating deeper connection with all horses, leading to safer, more enjoyable, trusting partnerships.
