Emma and Cameron Ross live on their 110 acre farm in Hastings with their son and alongside the Intuitive Horse herd of 14 and 2 donkeys….oh and 8 sheep and 2 cats!
Our herd of horses and donkeys live out all year round, we provide them with as natural a life style as we possibly can. This includes all horses living without rugs, shoes and stables. We have good natural shelter for them in the fields and none of our horses are ridden. Living together ensures they have the social interaction and herd structure they so desire to thrive in.
Many of our herd came to us as they could no longer be ridden due to injuries. As we don’t ride the horses here and instead allow them to just be themselves this environment has supported many of the horses healing on various levels.
''We are passionate about giving the horse a voice and taking the time to really see and understand who they are.''
When horses are allowed to be themselves and are around people they offer us levels of feed back which can be helpful for our own personal development and insights. Therefore when we work with the horses at Intuitive Horse we allow the sessions to be horse led. If a horse doesn’t want to engage then they don’t have to!
We have been running Intuitive Horse for over 10 years, originally discovered due to Emma's personal insights into her own behaviour's and mind and feeling states and how she was impacting her relationship with her horses. The more she became aware of how she was behaving or what she was thinking, the more she started to see the horses shifting in their behaviour around her as she made conscious shifts to change. This propelled her to explore the work with horses deeper and develop it so that she could help people as well as horses.
Whilst horses are our passion, we are also passionate about helping all animals and nature and Intuitive Horse is a vegan centre for that reason. When you attend our workshops and retreats all refreshments are vegan!
We are also passionate about rewilding our land as much as possible for the same reasons as above and share our journey with how we are trying to rewild on our facebook page, you can follow us by clicking on the link in the left side bar. We also share our journey through monthly vlogs on our YouTube channel- Intuitivehorse which includes mediations with the horses on there too. You can view them on our video page here.
