CREATE YOUR OWN RETREAT

Take time away from your busy life to retreat. To be quiet and still to reconnect with nature, yourself and others. An opportunity to get away from cell phones, tv's, computer and the internet. In today's world information comes at us almost non stop so it's good for the mind and soul to take a break once in a while. 

Mountain Horse Farm is a 33 acres peaceful haven with gorgeous views. The flat, not hilly, property is surrounded by the Bristol Hills which makes it wonderful to take walks on the groomed trails that go through fields filled with wildflowers and wildlife. You may see and hear many beautiful birds, deer, bunnies, hawks, chipmunks & squirrels and of course you will see the horses graze in their pastures.

You can create your own personal experience by staying either in a room or tipi, by adding massage appointments, sauna sessions, acupressure treatments, practicing Mindfulness or scheduling sessions to grow & heal with our horses and if you are a photographer or painter you can take advantage of the beautiful scenery and our equine models.
SPA

Our relaxing & tastefully decorated Spa offers massages incl. couples massages, sauna sessions, acupressure treatments & a juice bar. We offer many relaxing types of massages like Swedish, hot stone & deep tissue. Choose your acupressure treatment: detoxification, vitality, emotional balancing or relief from emotional stress related with grief/loss/illness. Stimulating pressure points combined with the use of essential oils creates a deep sense of peace and restoration and allows the body to completely relax and gain a renewed vitality.

WELLNESS - HEALING - LEARNING  for PEOPLE with our HORSES

Horses are powerful, beautiful, sensitive, and intuitive animals that have the ability to read and mirror our energy and emotions and in doing so can help us heal and learn.

The powerful sessions will give you valuable insights about yourself but at the same time it will feel like you are playing with the horses.  They are a lot of fun. Horses are masters at living in the moment and they encourage us to do the same. It's amazing to be close to them and feel their energy.     


We have wellness sessions for:
  • couples
  • women
  • children & adults with autism
  • seniors & the elderly
  • people that are going through grief, loss or life changing experiences like a divorce or illness
  • corporate sessions for teambuilding and leadership skills training..

These sessions don't involve riding horses, all work is done on the ground in a safe environment. No prior experience with horses is required.

MINDFULNESS & SELF EXPLORATION

Mindfulness can help you become more relaxed, focused, calm, happy & kind. Leading corporations are teaching it to their employees to better manage stress, celebrities make it part of their lifestyle and athletes use it to get in "the flow" so they can stay calm & perform under pressure.

At Mountain Horse Farm you will learn about Mindfulness that doesn't require you to be spiritual or religious and it will teach you how to apply it to all aspects of your life. It's a modern, mobile form of Mindfulness that you can do everywhere not just while sitting on a cushion in a quiet room and it doesn't require you to unplug all your digital devices.

Upon your arrival at Mountain Horse Farm you will find the book "Modern Mindfulness: How to Be More Relaxed, Focused, and Kind While Living in a Fast, Digital, Always-On World" by Rohan Gunatillake ready for you in your room. Your stay at our beautiful & quiet retreat will give you the opportunity to read about & practise the more than sixty excersises in the book at your own pace through self study. So when you go back home you will have learned how to apply Mindfulness to all aspects of your life.

You will also find the journal "Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration" by Meera Lee Patel waiting for you upon arrival. This uplifting, interactive journal will help you nurture your creativity, mindfulness & self-motivation.

Add this to your stay for $35 (includes the book & journal that you will take home with you).
