A Horse, of Course!

I’ve always been fascinated at the absolute awareness of horses. When you speak to them, their ears twitch and move toward you. Their heads lean closer, and they seem to take in every word. I’m pleased to find out that it’s not my imagination! The Inn at Bay Harbor is bringing to light the close bond between man and his equestrian friends. In a new spa program, the Equine Experience introduces participants to Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL) in which horses serve as teachers of self-discovery and personal growth.

From the press release:
Horses possess highly developed intuition and respond as a mirror to human body language and non-verbal cues. This reflection allows Equine Experience participants to learn and identify their own behavioral patterns. By engaging in ground-work exercises with horses and through the study and evaluation of their reactions, FEEL sessions provide insight that deepens awareness of one’s true self.

“Our habits define who we are,” said Camryn Handler, spa director at The Spa at The Inn at Bay Harbor. “The Equine Experience allows you to explore how your actions, moods and body language define you, and how to strengthen positive attributes and also identify any negativity to improve upon.”
Four Equine Experience events are scheduled. These Saturday sessions take place on November 20, 2010; January 8, 2011; April 9, 2011; and May 14, 2011. The workshops includes six hours of study with horses, lunch and snacks, journal and course materials, roundtrip transportation from The Inn at Bay Harbor – A Renaissance Golf Resort to the nearby stables of Bay Harbor Equestrian Club and a $40 credit toward spa and salon services to be used at The Spa at The Inn at Bay Harbor. Cost for the program is $225. Sessions groups are intimate with a maximum of 10 guests per workshop. For Equine Experience reservations, please call 231-439-4046.

High five,
