This Horse Communication Course is 4 nights from April 28 - May 2 2019 (Adults Only)Natural Horsemanship is about the horse teaching you about yourself! To make a natural connection with the horse it is obvious that we need to communicate with him on his level. For this to be possible we need to raise our awareness especially of our unconscious actions as we are continually giving him signals whether we mean to or not. The horse reads our body language and emotions which of course are both related to our thoughts. As we become more in touch with all our senses we can react with appropriate sensitivity and timing. So often problems arise in training horses just because we are doing too much. Click here for more details
- Every morning: Natural Horsemanship in ranch arena and play area, where we practice Communication, Energy use, Lightness, rapport and Connection. Simulations with other students (Max. 5), groundwork /games with horses (how to interpret body language).
- Every afternoon: we ride out or walk with our horses on the property trails and experience what we have learned.
At Campbell Hills Guest Ranch we have the ability to customize the experiences for groups to make them unique and exceptional.
Rent the Ranch Package (min.12 and max.16 people with a min.4 night stay)We offer Rent the Ranch Packages for your family or small groups with exceptional horseback riding in the mountainous BC terrain surrounding the ranch. For Novice riders we also offer morning sessions in our arena and explain the natural horsemanship communication with your horse. We want you to be comfortable and relaxed on your horse and fully enjoy the riding experience! Horseback riding in the mountains is normally more deliberate with attention paid to moving up and down in elevation while keeping an eye open for the next spectacular view of the mountains, lakes, and local wild life. During the shoulder seasons we can design a program catered to your Dream Ranch Vacation right here in the heart of the Thompson Okanagan region of BC. The Lakes surrounding our ranch are stocked with rainbow Trout (bring your boats and gear). Martin can smoke your catch of the day on-site! The ranch has a fully equipped games room, ideal for your family or small group or team building (up to 16 people). A wood fired sauna plus hot tub are the ideal combination after a day in the saddle. Please contact us for details. Reservations
5 night 'Confidence builder' Package
This Confidence Builder Package is 5 nights, April 14- April 19 2019 (Adults Only)
Connection and Awareness become knowledge:Knowledge Leads to Confidence! If we are not aware of ourselves we cannot expect the horse to understand us or feel good being in our company. While learning to connect with a horse, who is a purely intuitive being, we will learn to be quiet and still in the present moment and authentic in our communication. Luckily for us horses are extremely tolerant of our human clumsiness which allows us to learn from him along the way if we pay attention to the feedback. The horse has no hidden agenda and asks us to become more natural and take total responsibility and grow confident around them!
- Every morning: Natural Horsemanship in ranch arena and forest/field play area, where we go over developing Feel, Balance, Energy use and Connection. We will challenge you to be brave by stepping out of your comfort zone. You will discover Harmony within yourself and with the horse! How to halter, saddle, lead, mounting your horse, riding with one rein, and developing a balanced and deep seat (bareback session).
- Every afternoon: we ride out off the property on the trails and practice what we have learned!
