Trail Riders Victoria is excited to partner with Clinical Psychology Australia to offer the Wisdom of the Herd – Self-awareness and Connection Retreat. This retreat will enable participant to explore a magical and powerful connection with horses whilst forming a deeper connection and understanding of themselves.

This retreat is an ‘in hand’ experience meaning there is no riding or mounted session. We will be working with horses in a safe environment on the ground and at liberty. If you find you discover a passion for horses over the retreat and want to explore this further, there will be many experienced horse people to talk with, all at different stages in their horse partnership journey. This retreat will focus on building self-awareness and connection through exploring patterns of thinking, feelings and behaviours that influence relationships. We will cover topics such as the power of boundaries, acceptance, leadership, the art of requesting, communication and attunement.

The Wisdom of the Herd Retreat will be held at Trail Rider Victoria’s (TRV) basecamp in the beautiful Strath Valley. Accommodation will be bunkroom-style but you are more than welcome to bring your own swag or tent if that is preferred. Catering is included as are all the tools, horses and workshop resources necessary for sessions.
