Join leading presenters in the field of horse-human experiential learning and explore the many aspects of the horse–human relationship for three days of inspiration, education, healing & spiritual enrichment!
Session 1: Sacred Ritual with Horse
Connecting people, horses, and the natural world through the practice of sacred ritual. During this session you will receive the Sacred Rituals with Horse Guiding Principles, discover the benefits of ritual as a regular practice, weave together the 5 elements that create a unique ritual experience, and become aware of an ever-evolving, co-creative process with one another, animals, earth, and Source.
As a group we will create and engage in ritual with the Dune Lakes horses and experience what possibilities open to us when we take the time to simply BE in each other's presence.
Session 2: Accessing Your Black Horse WisdomIn this equine-inspired intuitive awareness development session you will learn about the horse as a physically and energetically highly-sensitive being, compare and contrast the intuitive nature of horses and humans, be invited to consider intuitive knowledge as a way to balance other forms of intelligence including logic, reason, and emotion, identify and develop your own unique intuitive gifts, and learn practical tools and techniques that build self-trust and self-confidence. Become empowered through balancing intuitive insights with self-care and healthy boundaries.

Kaimanawa Heritage Horses Film
Every two years up to two hundred wild Kaimanawa horses are culled from New Zealand Army land in the Kaimanawa Ranges, to protect the native flora and sustain the environment for the horses to thrive. The Kaimanawa Heritage Horses (KHH) mission is to increase successful adoptions of wild horses and to promote the horse’s versatility and trainability. Through advertising for suitable homes, undertaking home checks and following up on new owners the KHH ensures the welfare of these captured horses remains a priority.
The Kaimanawa horse is a unique and historically important link to New Zealand’s recent past. Identified as a breed with distinct and unique characteristics, the Kaimanawa horse has proved to be a great all-round riding pony.

We work closely with the Department of Conversation and other interested groups on the welfare and future of the Kaimanawa horses in the wild.

The relationship with the Kaimanawa horse has been a large part of Elder and Marilyn’s lives for the past two decades. They have both been awarded a Queen's Service Medal for putting their hearts and souls into the welfare of wild horses.
