More from Heart of the Horse

At Heart of the Horse on the outskirts of Malmsbury (Drummond North) we create intimate and powerful offerings for people to experience the healing power of horses. There are many ways you can enjoy our unique sessions whether it be individual or group experiences, day retreats or our signature bespoke offering of our 3 day & 2 night retreats that run monthly.

Are you curious about the healing power of horses? Are you drawn to spend quality time with these incredible sentient beings?  Are you drawn to them without knowing why?  Are you looking for new gentle ways to support yourself and your nervous system?  We offer experiences that can range from 1.5 hours to 3 days and have something to suit every budget.

By taking some time to be with calm and healthy horses, every part of you surrenders to the present moment. This is very powerful in helping you stabilise your nervous system and leads to a heightened awareness of your body, your surroundings, your feelings and your thoughts. This is mindfulness in action. Horses teach us to be fully present with what is, whereas us humans spend so much precious life force energy moving away from the now moment. They model for us how to really fully inhabit ourselves. You will find just by being out in nature, sharing space with the horses, the elements and the earth that you begin to breathe a little more easily and the layers of tension can begin to subside.

Healing sessions with horses also help you become aware of and unravel patterns that are no longer serving you. Let’s face it, we all have a lot of those! The horses and I can assist you to work out what isn’t working in your relationships and work with you to develop juicy, authentic connections with those around you.

Please reach out with any queries or questions that you may have, you will find many of our events popping up within this calendar or for a full comprehensive calendar to all that we have on please visit our website as it does change seasonally.  Don’t forget to subscribe if you want to be kept in the loop, as we are always dreaming up new experiences.

“I had an amazing time at Heart of the Horse with Rachel and her gorgeous team of therapy animals. If you’re looking for practical advice during a tough time, this is the place for you. Rachael taught me so many things I couldn’t possibly list them here. Crucial skills are needed to get through life with a good attitude, even when things are tough. The atmosphere was calm and inviting, and the property is stunning. I now have skills I can go away with and pass on to others. So grateful to have found the heart of the horse, I will be a returning customer.” Dari, Geelong

“A magical experience. I spoilt myself for my 62nd birthday. What a treat. Wonderful food, great accommodation, beautiful home to enjoy, so many special views. Rachel is a very fun, caring, nurturing & knowledgeable person. She is very generous with her time & a great cook & facilitator. I learned a lot about healing and caring for myself. I really enjoyed doing kundalini yoga; it wasn’t too hard.  It was very special seeing the horses when the tent window was opened. The four horses were beautiful and so different. I loved interacting with them; being in their presence was so powerful. The healing and energy they give are incredible. It was lovely to be with two others doing the retreat. Very cozy & intimate. I recommend anyone who wants a special experience to do this retreat.” Barb, Victoria
