Mindful walks & connecting through horses


While you are visiting the New Forest or even if you are lucky enough to live here, why not take time out to fully immerse yourself in it’s magic? A morning or a whole day with the Horse Raft will help you make a very personal connection with the forest’s mysteries and the majesty of its wonderful woodlands and ancient cultural landscape. We often spend so much time rushing around we often miss what’s right under our noses and in so complex and elusive a place as the New Forest it’s all too easy.


So why not let the Horse Raft introduce you to those little nuggets of arcane insight that inspire us to better connect with the magic of the forest? Let us take you on a journey of discovery through the mists of time and connect you with this last vestige of ancient England. We specialise in providing a mindful immersion of sensations and learning by connecting you with this amazing place. Through this unique experience you will come to appreciate why horse culture and especially this ancient landscape is so important not just to the nation but particularly to us as individuals.
