Unplug for an inspiring & rejuvenating small group experience offering fresh thinking, and understanding of the fundamentals of herd dynamics, social bonds, and freedom in partnership with horses. In this day long playshop, (yes, lets play, not work!) Cassandra will guide you through Somatic Reprogramming™ technques and embodied experiences with horses at liberty - no ropes or tools of control. These techniques focus on awareness and presence in body, mind & spirit, allowing both human and horse to experience and express themselves in pure relationship, based on mutual understanding and honor. Experience your true, grounded self reflected in your horse partner. Guests will experience on-the-ground observation and immersion with individual horses, small groups including Mustangs, and the larger herd at Flag Ranch on 90 acres of rain-fed grasslands.

Horse Wisdom & Embodied Spirit (3P in 3D,) Flag Ranch, May 4-6.
Deepen your wisdom through the spirit of the horse, in this two and a half day playshop, (yes, let’s play, not work!) with Cassandra Ogier & Brad Gallup. They will lead you on a journey of curiousity and self-discovery with 40 horses on 90 acres of rain-fed grasslands. Horses live entirely in the present moment whilst embodying 360 degree awareness of their environment and the intention of those around them. Horses provide non-judgmental feedback of when you are in the present moment, and when you lose focus into your thinking or the “small mind.” As human beings this is where we can get stuck; but knowing when you are on and off track helps you to tap into the world of inspiration and the natural flow that is always available. Through focused awareness and presence in mind, body and spirit you explore the deep connection to self, others and the world through the pure unbiased reflection of the horse, which we call 3P in 3D. Guests will experience on-the-ground observation and immersion with individual horses, small bands of horses and the larger horse herd. No previous experience with horses is necessary. There is no riding involved.

Equine Guided Empowerment & Somatic Riding® - Private 2 Day Sessions
2 Consecutive Days; Day 1, 1:00pm - 4:00pm / Day 2, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Private one-to-one experiences tailored individually to each guest. Cassandra guides you though personal empowerment techniques with horses at liberty. These sessions include ground-work, energy techniques, and somatic exercises aligned with herd dynamics, designed to embody our own sense of grounded presence, understand your individual right to space and unite with your horse at the appropriate time with a bareback riding experience. As ideas of control and ‘horse as vehicle’ fade, we arrive at the opportunity for new perspective on what true partnership means. Do horses truly wish to partner without us forcing our will over theirs? How do we navigate this fresh, new relationship? Whether you are a beginner or an expert with horses, Cassandra will support you in your exploration with horses, and yourself.
