Our Unique Horse-Centered Learning Holidays

We offer two levels of Course at the Centre. The difference is about how deeply you want to immerse yourself in learning skills and your own personal way of connecting. We guide you here about the two different courses, but please contact Claire to discuss which would be best for you at this time. We want to make sure you’ll thoroughly enjoy yourself and get the most benefit out of your trip here, so we are available to chat with you at all stages of the booking process.



Connection Training Skills Upgrade Course

On this Course, you’ll focus on developing your skills in training with positive reinforcement. This is a great Course to come on at the start of your positive horse training journey or if you want to focus on particular behaviours, for example, hoof lifting, loading or leading. You’ll work with Claire Waldron and have five hours tuition with the horses daily. You will have one-to-one coaching with your matched horse, who will be the best one to help you learn what you need. By the end of the three days, you will have fully upgraded your training skills and go home ready to apply your new learning to working with your own equine.

Connection Training Total Immersion

This is a 5-day Course which allows us to take you deeper into connecting with your horse and finding your own unique process. During the first two days, we focus on building connection through developing synchrony with your matched horse. This is based on the tai chi sessions which start every day. Through these, you learn how to control your breath, weight shifts and posture, all of which communicate your intention to your horse. We use our patent “Follow, Match, Lead” process to help you obtain an amazing connection, which you may not have experienced before.


Midweek, we give the horses a day off while we offer you a personal tutorial. We’ll discuss issues you have with your own equines and develop a training plan to take home. We can then incorporate this with your lessons in the last two days, so that you can practise the skills you need. We can work on creative solutions to your problems and you can try out ideas with our horses. By the time you go home, you will have a fully worked-out plan to start with your horse. We then support you back at home with our exclusive online Study Groups. This are three fort-nightly meetings with the rest of your group, where we support you in your work with your own equine and ensure that your plan will work well.

Our learning holidays are complete and perfectly organised (or so our clients tell us). All you have to do is arrive and depart and we’ll do the rest. In fact, we’re more than happy to help you with your travel arrangements too, so do make that call.

You will work with our lovely rescue horses, who are sensitive and sweet. Our first priority is your safety and relaxation, so we always start with you working in protected contact. It’s only once we’re sure that you and your horse are connected and happy, that we would work without a protective barrier.

Our watchword is “relaxation” for you, when working with a horse and when you are enjoying the casa. You can only connect well and learn when you feel relaxed, so this is our top priority. From meeting you in Granada to introducing you to the horses, to providing lovely food, we build relaxation into everything we do. Your learning holiday will be a real retreat from your worries and cares and you will be amazed at how refreshed you become.
