Have you ever dreamt of having your own horse? Or would you like to spend more time with horses but can’t find a way of doing this other than your hourly riding lesson?
We are offering limited spaces for 3 people to join us and our other ‘adopters’ at Intuitive Horse. Adopt a horse means you adopt one of our horses for a morning or afternoon a week and build a relationship with a horse, from the ground, on a regular basis whilst learning about horse behaviour and communication and receiving regular lessons. This gives you an opportunity to go on a journey with not only a horse but yourself at the same time!
What can I do on my adopt a horse day?
At an agreed time you come down to see your horse. As our horses live out in the field 24/7 you have an opportunity to spend time with your horse in the field with the rest of the herd. This is a lovely way to observe and learn about horse behaviour as well as spend time bonding with your adopted horse. Surrounded by nature it is a lovely way to
spend time away from the fast pace life can demand from us.
You will have a session each week with Emma and a detailed discussion will take place before you start your adoption and before each session as to how you wish to progress.
The type of sessions you might have are an I.H. 1-1 session focusing on your personal development, Learning horse communication- natural horsemanship type work which incorporates personal development or being involved in your horses training programme which includes therapies for horses. You can rotate between the different types of session. * Please note, we do not offer riding, our approach is all about developing a relationship with the horse from the ground.*
After your time with the horse you may like to stay on and get involved in farm life, you are very welcome to do this and to get involved in activities such as hay making in the summer and feeding horses extra feed in the winter months!
By adopting one of our horses you commit to an ongoing partnership between you and the horse through all the seasons of the year.
You are asked to pay the adoption fee at the beginning of each month, ideally by standing order. If for some reason you can’t make a week we roll that day over to another week so you don’t lose a day and payment remains the same. Your payment helps towards looking after your horse!
