Relationship Based Riding Lessons


Engaging in a relationship with horses enables students to:

  • Develop self esteem, confidence and awareness
  • Feel a sense of respect and connectedness to animals and the natural world
  • Cultivate understanding of the body language and intelligence of another species
  • Feel comfortable, supported and empowered in relationship with their own bodies
  • Activate intuition, empathy, and an understanding of energy as the basic medium of communication for all life

Learn to partner with another living being who shares with us their power, freedom and strength, and teaches us grounded, kind, and authentic leadership.

Lessons are taught one on one or in intimate semi private pairings so the students' enthusiasm, interests and confidence can lead the way. Perfect for riders looking for a first experience/encounter with a horse, or for more seasoned horse people looking to further their awareness and connection with their mounts. We use english tack to enable a closer connection to our horses, though we integrate insights and techniques from all disciplines. Because working and being with horses on the ground is so important for developing true understanding, relationship and mastery, a portion of each lesson will be spent learning grooming, tacking up, and groundwork, as well as horse communication, behaviour and psychology.

What people are saying about relationship based riding lessons at MHS:

"This is the most fun activity I do because it I get to spend time with horses and learn a lot of different things about them and riding. Kera makes learning easy and very fun! I love playing games during the lessons and Kera is very creative."   

                                               - Havi Ashe 

"Kera is so patient and knowledgeable, which makes learning to ride fun and relaxing. She creates such a supportive environment and progresses the teaching at a perfect pace. The physical setting is stunning and I look forward to each week. Spending time with the horses, being in nature and learning something new is an awesome bonding activity to do with my daughter."
