Meditating with Horses from Horsesense

Horsesense is one of those Chamber members that always has something new going on that I am really intrigued by.  Some of the Chamber staff are venturing out of the office soon for a tour and visit with the Horsesense.  Look for some photos and a blog post about that soon.

Here is their latest program: Meditating with Horses
Horse Sense of the Carolinas will be holding a series, Meditating With Horses, on Thursdays this fall. Session will be held October 22 and 29, and November 5 and 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The hour will consist of a series of meditations and horse interactions, while enjoying the fall sunset at the beautiful mountain setting of the Horse Sense farm in Marshall.

No prior experience with horses is necessary. Please contact Horse Sense to register at 828-683-7304 or visit the website: Each session will cost $20.

“Horse Sense of the Carolinas (HSOTC) has been involved with the community for several years as a mental health facility and we are excitted to open our gates for the public to enjoy the healing powers of interacting with horses,” said Shannon Knapp, president of HSOTC,

“By utilizing the curious, instinctive nature of horses, participants will have the opportunity to discover and examine their relaxation patterns,” said Knapp. “The masters of clear, honest, and unbiased feedback, the horses allow those that take part to practice a whole new way of meditating and self-awareness.”

Horse Sense has been creating positive change for people and horses in Western North Carolina since 2003 and is an EAGALA-approved Provider of Continuing Education, with the first EAGALA Advanced Certified staff in the United States.
