Somatic means of the body. Somatic horsemanship is body-mind rejuvenation through physical interaction with horses.
Horses restore in us the strength, coordination, grace, flexibility, and joy we tend to lose in the aging process and through injury or inactivity.
In somatic horsemanship sessions, you will experience body-mind wholeness through spending time in a natural herd in a beautiful open space where you will be able to touch, lead, groom, and, optionally, sit on a horse.
Somatic horsemanship combines the principles of safe, conventional horse handling with techniques from yoga, tai chi, dance, and other somatic and healing arts. It includes practices from equine-assisted learning and psychotherapy, equine-guided psychospiritual development, natural horsemanship, and sports medicine.
