Let's Get Social...with Horses!

The Horsey Hostess provides several options for "Social Hours" that allow you to make the most of your time with the horses, even if you choose not to ride. They can even tailor a social activity to you - just let them know how you'd like to spend your hour or half-hour.

Social Hours are offered at a small, private, tree surrounded farm located 7 miles from downtown Saratoga Springs.

Whether you're a seasoned rider, someone who used to ride, or you've never been around horses before, The Horsey Hostess has a Social Hour for you.

Why Horses?

Research indicates that horses communicate through body language and breath, and even have social rules around greetings, moving as a herd, and friendship. The Horsey Hostess helps to "translate" what these majestic creatures have to say, and in doing so, gives you the tools to convey your own thoughts. 

Through The Horsey Hostess you'll be able to slow down, make meaningful connections, and simply enjoy the time you're setting aside for yourself. You could even call it a "Horsey Spa"!

I had an absolutely wonderful hour today with a horse named Pete. I booked the hour to learn to be present in the moment and try to relax. Casey ( the Horsey Hostess) was such a knowledgeable and gentle guide . She knows her horses and how they interpret your feelings. She takes you through several activities ( if you are comfortable) helping the horse help YOU to be in the moment as they always are. I have tried meditation, yoga etc. but they all seem a bit too quiet for me. When I first began the lesson I was worried the horse might bite me, step on my foot.... with Casey's help that fear became a respect for an animal that was choosing to let me relax and forget everything else and be in the moment as was my goal. As Casey said " he has your back". I felt listened to, cared for and peaceful. This all came from Pete, Now, if I want to relax or be present, I see Pete 's beautiful face and remember what he taught me. I definitely will return.

I’m so glad that you enjoyed your experience. Pete has a big heart and likes to take good care of people he meets.

My sister and I had an incredible time at the Horsey Hostess! Casey is a wonderful instructor; she is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and sweet. We got to ride Oscar and Rocky, and they were the absolute best! Can’t wait to go back.
