Mindfulness with horses

Horses live entirely in the present, and so they are a living study in mindfulness.
Their ability to be in the moment without judgment allows them to pick up on our subtle body language signals and emotions. Horses often mirror our feelings and when we show stress, nervousness or strong emotions, they tend to show the same. This unbiased feedback from the horse gives us the opportunity to see ourselves better and challenges us to look inwards, explore ourselves, and ask ourselves: what is alive in me now, in this moment?
Trust Training

Mindful Trust Training

This course is aimed at owners and animal lovers who want to get to know a magical human-horse interaction.
It is based on presence and non-violent communication, according to the founder Marshall Rosenberg.
What does it mean to be "PRESENT"? Why does "being present" change our friendship? What else is possible to have a happy and easy relationship with the horse?

This course will show you how much more connection and trust with your horse is possible, change your thinking about partnership forever, and help you build a deep friendship with your animals !!!

Help animals with a sponsorship

Tara Animal Rescue Farm is mainly financed by our programme "Mindfulness with horses" and by the support of our sponsors - donations are invested in feeding the animals, the farrier and the vet!

Become a sponsor - we will be happy to inform you!

Our four-legged friends, and also the three-legged goat Flakes, say thank you very much.

Together we are never alone!

We are easy to find:

On the road to El Cotillo, leave El Roque on the right and Granja Tara is on the left, next to the old mill, which is easy to see. At the small crossroads, just before the end of the village, follow the natural path towards the mill. You can´t miss our sign.
