"Yoga and horses" is a special week created by passionate equestrian professionals.

Apart of daily yoga sessions we will introduce you to horse wellbeing with additional Natural Horsemanship lessons and a session with a veterinary physiotherapist and saddle fitter. 

This holiday will suit riders looking for relaxed, centre based, riding who would like to learn something about communication with horses and experience riding bitless (optional). Riders need to be able to walk, trot and canter unaided, but the emphasis will be on immersing oneself in nature, and less experienced riders who have not tried trail riding before will enjoy this ride.

The weather in August in the region is usually a pleasant 20-30C. Accommodation is converted barn apartments with a lovely rustic feel. The yoga session in the morning is great for relaxation and there are great picnic lunches that include fresh seafood, quality beef, local cheese, good wine and cider.

The daily trail rides will vary with walking, trotting and cantering through remote countryside on grassy hills, low mountain tracks, open scenic areas, forest and historic villages.

The natural horsemanship sessions take the form of groundwork lessons learning about equine body language and facial expressions, concentrating on horse wellness and also basic exercises to improve riding position, balance and the aids.
