Meet a few of our resident therapists
Learn through the eyes and heart of a horse to become mindful of your individual energy. Explore how our body language, tone and attitude affect our ability to communicate effectively.
Develop awareness of patterns and behaviors you have that may help you or hinder you.
Horses are amazing, sensitive animals. As a means of survival developed over thousands of years horses are acutely aware of their surroundings. As prey animals they make quick and accurate decisions to avoid danger. That is why horses can read you like a book before you ever get near them. Horses are authentic and react honestly to whatever energy or behavior you may display around them. The horses can in turn help you "think like a horse" channeling your energy to become more authentic and honest.
Being outside in harmony with nature (as opposed to a hotel or conference room ) allows you to reawaken, forming a deeper connection with yourself.
WAKE UP YOUR SPIRIT!

THE MAIN PLAYERS
Deni lives her passion. She has been teaching with horses for over 20 years. In fact she still considers herself "a student of the horse". She is a "forever learner" about horses. She has trained under the likes of Pat and Linda Parelli, Leslie Desmond, Amy Bowers-Book and Jonathan Fields. She is a certified rider bio-mechanic coach under Colleen Kelly. She is a master at pinpointing the root of a problem a human may be having with a particular horse. Deni uncovers the issue and then teaches about the miscommunication or misunderstanding the student is having with the horse. In Horse Honesty Deni will explore equine facilitated learning techniques to benefit workshop participants who may or may not be horse owners. We are lucky to have Deni as our master horse human teacher here at Sundog.
Lara Conkey-Wiebelhaus 7D
Lara is a local Cohasset resident. She is on a new journey as yoga teacher since 2016. She is quickly gaining fame teaching for Chico Yoga Center, Chico Sports Club and Cohasset Community Association. If you have never done yoga or if you are a pro you will love her instruction. She teaches to every level. We are lucky to have her for Sunrise Yoga at Horse Honesty this year.
7D Sharon Blau is HONESTLY the best cook ever for this workshop. Besides creating an amazing menu for the entire weekend, she carefully picks out all fresh, organic and local ingredients for every meal. You will see her smiling face in the kitchen keeping everybody company while filling the house with tantalizing aroma's. She is also a devoted natural horsemanship student of Deni Whiting.
