Experience Ireland through the Wisdom of Horses

Opportunity of a lifetime you deserve.  Christina and Joyce offered a safe, fun adventure full of introspection, depth and freedom to explore and what could be better than doing this on horseback? The horses are amazing and so was the journey. Thank you both for your wisdom and the many offerings to grow and learn. Full of gratitude.

The riding was arduous but immensely satisfying.  The bonding between riders grew and became truly inspirational and so fulfilling.  The vistas were never ending as far as he eye could see.  Cantering on the beach was exhilarating.. Learning to ride using English and posting became a non-issue as did living out of saddle bags.  Joyce and Christina brought the group together, helped tremendously with the horses and led us on a spiritual journeys.  The spiritual aspects of this trip added to the fullness of the experience in ways unimaginable.

“Of all the clinics and programs I have attended and participated in, this has been the most informative and excellent preparation for horse ownership.  Beyond and art of this, horses are honored and celebrated for who they truly are.” Deb J.

“If you are considering bringing a horse into your life for the first time, this program is essential. If you are looking to deepen your relationship with a horse already in your life, this program is essential. It will be the greatest gift you could offer your horse – and yourself!” Lorrin M.

“Deepening my ability to partner with horses will continue throughout my life.  I am certain that this past week in ES101 was one of my biggest growth spurts!” Joan S.
