Connect with your Inner Alpha Mare

Embracing your Third Age with the guidance of horses

An in-depth journey into the adventure of aging for mature women

6 Nights/7 days with optional extra days exploring Connemara on horseback

  In a natural setting, every herd of horses is led by an Alpha Mare that quietly and kindly gains the respect of the herd by being confident and fair. Horses in the herd gravitate to her, not because she makes rules and forces the herd to follow, but because she doesn’t need to. The Alpha Mare knows who she is; she leads by example and exudes wisdom and self-awareness. With the guidance of our herd of Connemara ponies and the support of our experienced and professional human facilitators and therapists, you will learn how to:
  • accept change, while not settling for less
  • be the best You possible,
  • honor your acquired wisdom and experience,
  • offer your gifts to the world without expectations,
  • release the need to be needed and appreciated,
  • embark on a journey of self-love
