This is your call to adventure! Our ranch is nestled in the mountains above Napa Valley, dappled with oaks and redwoods. As you drive up the winding narrow roads, take in the fragrance of trees and notice the terraced vineyards along your journey. When you arrive, we’ll have light refreshments on the deck and you can tell me about your expectations, emotions, goals, or fears in regards to being around horses or learning about Reiki. This conversation will help me tailor your experience and choose the first guided meditation. We will walk down to meet the horses, let them come to us (which they will!) and begin our meditation. With Kathleen Prasad’s Let Animals Lead® method of Reiki we do not put our hands on the horses until they request touch. After the opening meditation, I will guide you in your horsemanship goals. This could be haltering and grooming the horses, an equine bubble bath, or just spending time in their presence. Being around horses will make you feel incredible. Your time with the horses can be completely customized. Would you like to halter and lead the horse, ground drive, walk through obstacles together, or practice activities at liberty? These are all possible! To close our session we will return the horse to his paddock or pasture, then relax with a final meditation focusing on the peaceful heart-to-heart connection that was established today.

I am a retired public school teacher, meditator, dressage bronze medalist, musical freestyle rider, and certified teacher and practitioner of Kathleen Prasad’s Let Animals Lead® method of Reiki with animals. I am trained in the the "Mindful Schools" curriculum as well. I have always felt connected to animals, but the most significant part of my journey started in 2003 when I adopted and gentled a wild Mustang. The incredibly deep bond with my Mustang Yogi led me to learn Reiki with animals and bodywork for wellness. I have volunteered to practice Reiki and TTOUCH with elephants at "Friends of the Asian Elephant” in Thailand. I invite you to join me in the stable and pasture for a transformative experience with my small herd of gentle, wise horses. Each individual human is on a personal HERO'S JOURNEY, and I’d like to serve as your guide.
organic fruit, nuts, and other goodies
Organic treats and fruit will be available and, or course, a restroom!
Join me at Brioso Vineyard Stables on Mount Veeder. We are located off of a steep, winding road, at 2,680 feet. Our area is known for grapes grown on volcanic hillsides. All three of our horses have faced and overcome emotional and physical challenges. Meet gorgeous Pura Raza Espanola Andalusian (PRE) youngster Brioso, Mustang Yogi, our wise leader, and Lusitano Arteiro, the newest addition to our herd.
最多可有3位年满6周岁的参与者参加。 This experience may last from 1-3 hours all depending on your needs and how the horses respond. If you don’t see the dates you are looking for, get in touch and we will work something out. The horses, wildlife, and maybe even a cat…
All visitors MUST wear non-slip, closed toe shoes like hiking boots, and comfortable clothes.
Maya Angelou and Oprah say that when we know better we do better. It's an honor to play a part in your horsemanship journey! “The qualities required to be good with horses are the same qualities required to be good at life in general..." mentor - Mark Rashid
