Airy Hill Stables in an idyllic place to get away from the busy day to day noise and experience the gifts that horses have to share with us. Their powerful presence. Their mastery of living in the present moment. Their honest feedback and reflections of what they see when they look at us deep beneath our exteriors. There is so much to be gleaned from time with these powerful beings. Peace. Joy. Harmony. Connection. Adventure.
Everything we do here at Airy Hill Stables is designed to help people gain insights into themselves through their interactions with our amazing horses and coaches. We practice Compassionate Horsemanship as part of our every activity.
Our focus? Authentic relationships with horses and one another based on awareness, understanding and respect. As people master the art of compassion with horses, they learn not only about how to connect more fully with horses, but also with themselves and the world around them.
I used to think one had to be a natural born horse whisperer. Then I discovered that it is something that can be learned over time with a great deal of patience, the right mentors and a healthy dose of deep personal growth to go along with it.
My journey with horses has shaped who I am and has led me to my life's work: to share with others what horses can teach us. If we are willing to look deeply into our own hearts and souls - our patterns, beliefs and ways of being, we can gain powerful insights into ourselves. We can move from fear to love. From the old-school dominance based paradigm into a more awakened and cooperative based state of being. Here life can be full of joy and more rewarding connections, experiences and relationships.
