MAGIC, MAJESTY AND RELATIONSHIP
”After decades away from horses and after a scary experience with a horse in my late 20’s, this orientation helped me start facing my fears with more understanding, compassion, and skills to enjoy the magic, majesty and relationship with horses. Learning and re-learning the basics of horse care, natural horsemanship and positive reinforcement in a supervised group setting on Wildsong’s beautiful land was a blessing”
