Equine Encounters

Why the Horse?

Humans have been partnering with horses for hundreds and hundreds of years. We owe more to the horse for our civilization than any other being or invention: the horse has carried us to new homes and through wars, helped us plow our fields, and been a family companion. They delivered our mail! Less than one hundred years ago, horses were a part of our daily existence - either you had one or you encountered one on the street or nearby farm.

Horses continue to serve their humans as their reflective partners by nudging us into authenticity and our truest, highest selves using their keen prey instincts without judgment. They have a sophisticated herd hierarchy which pushes us into better relationships with others and with self. Horses model self-care and living in the present moment - all excellent tools for thriving and surviving in our non-stop lives.

Women's Networking Event - at the Barn

2021 Dates TBA

Golden Gate Dairy Stables, Muir Beach

Picture yourself walking into a field with a group of women who appreciate nature and being outside. You're wearing jeans and comfortable shoes. And maybe a fleece (this is Marin, after all). You're relaxed.


You're having conversations about things that mean a lot to you. Maybe it's something you're celebrating or sharing a passion that you're bringing to light. Perhaps you're bringing something new into your business.


You can hear the ocean in the background, birds in the trees lining the field and horses are holding the space of people who are present and connected to each other.

Sound like your typical networking event? Probably not. Come see and feel how this is different.
