What is meditation?
Meditation is about bringing your attention to the present moment- your thoughts and feelings, and the world around you. This often called ‘mindfulness’. It helps you to recognise your own thoughts and anxiety , and enables you to deal with adverse feelings earlier, building self-confidence and self-esteem, and ability to cope with stressful situations. Meditation is about enjoying the moment and to see yourself in a kind and positive way. Learning techniques that can be used for a short time each day can help to introduce calmness into your life, reducing the body’s signs of stress such as high blood pressure, feelings of panic, shortness of breathe and so on. Meditation promotes a holistic feeling of well-being for both mind and body.
Fancy having a go at drawing or painting horses? Bring your pens, pencils, paper, and other equipment and spend time sketching Claire’s lovely horses. The stables is a lovely setting for artists, experienced or starting out. For landscapes, our fields lend themselves to a view of the countryside.
Do you find yourself trying so hard to get something right that you become tense and frustrated with yourself? You may be so desperate to lose weight/ get fitter/ be better, for example, that you lose sight of being self-aware and doing what is best for you.
Reiki for you
You will be fully clothed lying on a couch or sitting on a chair. I will place my hands just above or lightly touch, different areas of you body, concentrating on where the energy is most needed. During this treatment, you may feel heat, coolness, tingling, or just a deep sense of peace and relaxation. During a treatment, I will channel this energy through my hands and use it to rebalance the chakras, or centres of energy.
What is Reiki?
Reiki ( Universal life force) was discovered by Dr Usui. Reiki is used to provide that extra boost for the body, allowing it to begin the process of self-healing. There is an ancient belief in traditional Chinese Medicine that all physical bodies have a life force or “chi” that flows around us along energy paths called meridians, with centres of energy at various points called chakras.

Core Stability for the Rider
Core stability is a very important thing for the horse rider to have. Controlling the horse is not about pulling on the reins and kicking with the legs- far from it.
