Healing Through Horses

Equine therapy  is taking the reins in the world of wellness.

This transformational experience is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and worldwide. Even Hollywood stars Ben Affleck and singer Selina Gomez are among those who have sought equine therapy as part of a wider treatment programme.

Combining the power of healing through horses with the luxury, spacious setting of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas in the Dominican Republic, a unique and aptly named “Unbridled Retreat” will take place in April this year.

Equine gestalt coach and authentic horse listener, Devon Combs, has partnered with the Caribbean resort to offer a retreat for up to 12 women. Her aim is to help women find clarity and purpose through the healing power of horses in an environment designed to promote wellness, self-discovery and healing.  “I’ve experienced the healing power of horses first-hand. Now I bring women and horses together in a safe space where I teach people how to let go of self-sabotage and pick up the reins of their lives. I specialise in helping them get clear on where they’re headed, and find the courage to move forward in their lives.”

The Unbridled Retreat at Casa de Campo provides the ideal setting for the equestrian centre within its 7,000-acre resort. Dripping in Hollywood legacy and Hamptons luxury, Casa de Campo and its mansion villa homes have attracted A-list celebrities, politicians and royals for decades, recently including Jay-Z and Beyonce, the Kardashians, Drake, Alycia Keys and Bill Clinton.

The Unbridled Retreat takes place in April 2020.

Intuitive Horse Therapy

Intuitive Horse Therapy is equine assisted personal development through experiential learning.

This unique therapy works with people of all types to help them gain a deeper insight and understanding of themselves and horses. They learn how to work with emotional awareness with a particular emphasis on learning how to “quieten” the mind and “be’” in a present moment state. It is believed that a horses’ behaviour changes from person to person and tends to respond directly to a persons’ emotional state, regardless of riding ability.

Having witnessed the positive impact horses can have a range of Intuitive Horse programmes including private one on one sessions, workshops and 3 & 5 day retreats are offered. All work with the horses is done from the ground and nor riding experience is required.

Intuitive Horse is based at New Coghurst Farm near Hastings East Sussex, Southern England. It is a family run farm.
