We feel comfortable and engaged when we visit Mr Puddles and Pirate. A highlight is being up high on a horse. Another highlight is learning to pause, breathe and relax when leading Mr Puddles. We concentrate on hearing sounds in the tranquil surroundings and we focus on how our body feels when we are with a horse. We have learnt this is called mindfulness.
Kaya has a gentle and welcoming nature and she makes sure we are always safe during every session.
We also love the little purple flowers!

What an achievement 😍
Thank you Equi-Zen for this amazing experience today. This is Courtney's first week on the NDIS and Ally, her Support Coordinator, joined her for a session of Equine-assisted therapy 🐴

Court then joined Elevation Care for a, much deserved, week worth of respite.

Go Team!!! Kicking some serious #NDIS goals xx

Earlier this year, our family of four participated in a meditation and interaction session with the beautiful horses at Equi-Zen. It was a calming, centering and enriching family experience that I highly recommend if you are holidaying in the Atherton Tablelands. Thank you Kiah😊💐🌺🌹🌼

Equi-Zen has moved to a new location (don’t worry only 3 minutes down the road)
We hope you love it as much as we do!
We are Spotting wallabies every day, hearing the kookaburras laugh and the horses enjoying the grass.
Peaceful is an understatement. Come visit, have a break and enjoy the serenity with us!

It's time to step into the new year of 2018. May this year bring you Joy, Love and succes in the things that matter to you!

I am excited to share what we at Equi-Zen in 2018 will have to offer: We will bring back the regular group meditations with the herd, workshops will be coming up (Connection for parent and child through adventure based experiences, Support for People with Eating disorders, Full Moon womans circle in the paddock and more)
Of course we still offer all our old favourites: Equine Assisted Learning sessions for individuals/groups and children, Mindfulness Bush rides and walks with the horses, Horsemanship lessons, Horsewisdom and Natural world wisdom, Mental Health support and more.

I also travel to work with you and your horse to help you deepen your relationship with your horse and yourself.

Myself and the horses are looking forward to see you again this year and we are excited to meet many more new 2 and 4 legged friends.

A FORGIVING MOMENT

Don't try to forgive.
Forgiveness is not a 'doing'.

Simply accept that this moment is exactly the way it is right now.
And the past was the way it was.

Accept your non-acceptance in the present.
Forgive your inability to forgive.
Feel your breath, the sensations in your body, the life that burns brightly in you.

Everyone is doing their best, even when it seems like they are doing their worst.
Everyone is dreaming or having a nightmare, battling with pain you may never understand.
You don't have to condone their actions.
You may not be able to wake them up.
You don't have to like what happened.

Simply let go of the illusion
that it could have been any different.
You are different now, anyhow.
Don't focus on something
you have no control over.
The past is a distant land.

Bring your attention back to this moment,
Your source of true power.
Your place of connectedness.

Wake up from the dream
That anyone has any power
To take away your inner peace.

Drop the need to be right.
Embrace the need to be free.
Come out of the story of 'my life'.
Reclaim the moment.

Be here, in your new life.
Show up for this brand new day.

This is forgiveness.

- Jeff Foster

HORSES FEEL AND READ ENERGY Cracker  Horses most definitely feel and read energy.  This was quite apparent at my last England clinic approximately 10 days ago.  One of the horses in attendance was a beautiful mare that only had one eye.  We learned that after a long struggle to save her right eye, it unfortunately had to be re...

This is beautiful! explaining some of the science on why horses make people feel good. heartmath is fascinating...

Recent studies conducted by the Institute of HeartMath provide a clue to explain the bidirectional "healing" that happens when we are near horses. According to researchers, the heart has a larger electromagnetic field and higher level of intelligence than the brain: A magnetometer can measure the heart's energy field radiating up to 8 to 10 feet around the human body. While this is certainly significant it is perhaps more impressive that the electromagnetic field projected by the horse's heart is five times larger than the human one (imagine a sphere-shaped field that completely surrounds you). The horse's electromagnetic field is also stronger than ours and can actually directly influence our own heart rhythm!
Horses are also likely to have what science has identified as a "coherent" heart rhythm (heart rate pattern) which explains why we may "feel better" when we are around them. . . .studies have found that a coherent heart pattern or HRV is a robust measure of well-being and consistent with emotional states of calm and joy--that is, we exhibit such patterns when we feel positive emotions.
A coherent heart pattern is indicative of a system that can recover and adjust to stressful situations very efficiently. Often times, we only need to be in a horses presence to feel a sense of wellness and peace. In fact, research shows that people experience many physiological benefits while interacting with horses, including lowered blood pressure and heart rate, increased levels of beta-endorphins (neurotransmitters that serve as pain surppressors), decreased stress levels, reduced feelings of anger, hostility, tension and anxiety, improved social functioning; and increased feelings of empowerment, trust, patience and self-efficacy."
