Where horses and people can be themselves...
Horses are incredibly sensitive and intuitive; not only can they pick up on their rider’s emotions, but can often reflect and magnify their tensions and concerns.
Using horses’ incredible ability to take in the whole picture, The Holistic Horse and Pony Centre in Ockham near Guildford offers so much more than the ‘usual’ riding lessons. Yes, private and group lessons, hacks and experience days are available, but the centre’s strength is in its use of the relationship between horse and rider to explore the nature of your riding and any fears or challenges you may be struggling with. From there, holistic therapist, Wendy Price will provide you with the tools to change at physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

About the Centre
As a holistic centre, not only is the physical wellbeing of the horses taken into account, but also their psychological and emotional welfare. The Holistic Horse and Pony Centre’s horses live out in a herd, enabling them to socialise with each other. Good sized stables provide shelter and with low walls, horses are able to see and interact with other members of their herd.
Seasonal routines are adopted to provide the horses with a more natural environment in which to thrive, and enjoy year round grazing over 50 acres. Horses enjoy a natural, fibre-based diet which is easier to digest than conventional feeds and as in the wild, horses can graze hay throughout the day.
Horses are barefoot if it suits their feet but if they are more comfortable with shoes, they are shod by the centre’s experienced farrier. Horses are only wormed when required as regular, unnecessary chemical worming can upset the natural balance of the digestive system.
In essence, each horse is treated as an individual and a whole animal, with the horse’s mind and body taken into account to promote a healthier, happier horse or pony.
