Sara with Horses

Full Circle Stables is excited to host a workshop taught by Sara Stenson on April 9 and 10. Sara, a well respected horse massage therapist and T’ai Chi for horsemen practitioner, has studied the concepts of natural horsemanship extensively and applies them to her training. Traveling from the northern prairies of Colorado, we welcome her at our location in Palm City Florida to share her expertise.

This two-day workshop will help riders reach that harmonic relationship we all seek with our horse partners. Through understanding of the biomechanics, our horse and our body, she will facilitate the development of feel to achieve harmony, lightness and communication – reached when we can ‘hear’ our horses and they ‘hear’ us (our aids) clearly.

You are invited (with or without your horse) to an introductory lesson in T’ai Chi, followed by mounted sessions to:

  • help you develop a keener feel for your horse’s movement, which will in turn
  • enable you to influence his movements
  • reach a better understanding of how you ride your horse and affect ability to move freely
  • understand us as we strive to give clear communication.

Cost

Sara’s workshop is April 9th and 10th, from 9am to 4pm each day. Lunch included. A review of the days’ activities, poolside with wine and cheese, will follow each session.
