Partnerships for Equine Learning
Gaia Gathering Inc. has partnered with Starr Horse Retreats and Arena's to provide a facility for equine assisted learning and therapy, as well as events for various healing modalities and gatherings.
There are a handful of sanctuary horses here available to share their wisdom with participants. The equines live as naturally as possible in a herd. Our herd consists of two small ponies (Jasper and Bonnie), one donkey (Rosie), one mule (Seven), two off the track thoroughbreds (Zeus and Galaxy), a 3 year old grade gelding (River), and a two year old grade filly (Feather).
About Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas
Our mission is to provide a safe space for equine assisted therapy and learning utilizing higher consciousness healing modalities and positive reinforcement (R+) ridership techniques.
At SHRA we offer unique healing modalities to illustrate parallel issues of trust, forgiveness, and threshold limits between participants and horses.
Through various exercises we explore behavioral, psychological, and emotional intelligence skills for mindful decision making and past grief healing. Some of our unique modalities include sound healing and guided meditations in the barn, equine theater and movement in the arenas, barnyard yoga, animal Reiki and massage, and positive reinforcement ridership training workshops and clinics.
Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas is a 30 acre facility with multiple round pens, multiple arenas and 10 acres of obstacle course and on-property trails.
