Art of Horse Whispering Experiential Learning

Groups and one-to-one sessions for Children & Young People

Step into the world of the horse…

Adventures with Horses offers children and young people the opportunity to learn how to engage with, and understand the language of horses and ponies in a natural environment.


   

Explore being with horses... learning from horses... and connecting with horses...

   
 

We provide a safe natural environment with horses and ponies for children and young people from 5 years upwards. Suitable for those who have had very little to do with horses in the past, or those who have already ridden at a riding school, but never got the opportunity to really engage with a horse or pony. We do not offer horse riding, but there are also some good local riding stables close by. 

 

We also work with children and young people who are disadvantaged. Further information is on the next page Please click here

Our philosophy

 

On our Art of Horse Whispering workshops and sessions for children and young people we adventure and explore how to enter a relationship with horses which is power with, not power over.

 

Becoming a horse whisperer takes a life time of being around horses, there are no quick routes, but many of the great horse whisperers' developed their skills at a young age by getting the chance to learn how to connect with horses in nature - and that is the part we will be exploring.

 

In modern times not that many of us get the chance to grow up around horses and just "be" with them and learn from them. In these workshops and sessions children and young people get the chance to do just that. They learn horse connection in away that is safe, informative and creative. They will not be riding the horses or learning to train or control them, instead, by paying attention to the horses subtle nuances, they will be learning to become their co-creative partners.

 

We are based in a beautiful natural environment on Dartmoor. The venue is unique in the fact it is not part of a commercial equestrian centre, though it does have good facilities, and is professionally run, it offers a peaceful, quiet, private undisturbed space to be with horses.

Although our Art of Horse Whispering courses are not framed to offer learning or therapy, the horses by their natural biological make-up will be asking us to stay connected, authentic and mindful and this can be very therapeutic.

 

Our Art of Horse Whispering sessions are also suitable for children and young people with special educational needs - please click here to see information on our Special Programmes for Children and Young People.
