Calendar of Events Riding Beyond 2023


Half-Day Group Sessions: 

Saturdays at the Farm,
Horseplay for Grownups

Offering Mindful, Heartfelt Experiences with the Big-Hearted Riding Beyond horses.

Explore the kinship: Small group sessions meet on Saturday morning or afternoon at a beautiful new private facility in the northern hills of Ashland.

Experience how to savor our kinship with horses and learn from their gifts as sentient beings. Riding Beyond half-day sessions are specially designed for men and women experiencing stresses of COVID and wildfires, health care providers, and the general public to experience  regeneration through interaction with horses. 

Each Saturday program is limited to ten participants, $50 per person. Scholarships available. Come with your friends and co-workers and enjoy interactions with large-hearted horses and creative exploration.


May 27, 9-2 pm. “What We Love Is the Cure”

Join us as we explore with our horses the ancient and enduring gifts of the horse/human connection for its wisdom on the current tension between widening societal divisions and our innate instinct to connect and find unity.


Explore pathways offered us by our ancient and enduring connection with horses, especially their wisdom for helping us emerge joyfully into the new world offered us in these times.

July 22: postponed due to smoke forecast.

September 23 postponed by smoke to October 14, 11-3 pm, “HIGH TECH MEETS HORSE TECH”

Join us to travel the pathways offered us by our ancient and enduring connection with horses, enlightened by a special presentation of the revolutionary HeartMath technology. Tricia Webster, consultant in leadership development, has been utilizing this technology to reveal the power of working from the heart in health care and nonprofit industries. She will demonstrate what it tells us about the power of the horse/human connection and how we can take its benefits home for our own heart coherence benefits for happier well-being.

Tricia will be joined by Karin Pederson of Wild Grace Energetics, who will lead us in her heart-based centering practices for enhancing our experience with the horses.

The HeartMath Institute has researched the positive effects of work with horses for war veterans suffering from PTSD for the past 20 years. Their research provides Riding Beyond’s foundation for the core practices of all of our programs.  Join us for this engaging and enlightening time together. 

Prospects for Non‑Drug Strategies to Preserve Cognitive Health

Heart coherence training, pioneered by HeartMath Institute has been a fundamental principle of the Riding Beyond programs since their inception in 2013. Alongside many other benefits, recent studies show promising prospects for preserving cognitive health.
