WE ARE SURE YOU HAVE MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING WORKSHOP, SO LET'S SEE IF WE CAN ANSWER SOME OF THEM FOR YOU...
First and foremost, we want to thank you for making the decision to join us here at Axiom Equine! We welcome you with open arms and open hearts to join us in experiencing the tremendous power of the Horse.
A power unlike any on the planet, the horse brings us all to our most vulnerable places. The offer we extend to you now is to connect with the Being that helped us evolve our civilization as we know it, and allow it to evolve you in a new way. In the workshop, we will commune with the horse once again and allow them to share their gifts with us, their greatest gift being honest communication. This experience can help reveal to you the truth that your power and security are not outside of you, but come from within.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
The only requirement we have for attire is shoes with closed toes. During the warm months shorts are OK, although we recommend jeans for comfort with the sandy footing. During the cooler months we ask that you please be sure to dress extremely warm. We suggest packing an extra jacket, gloves, hat, etc... The workshop takes place in an indoor arena so it tends to be quite cold. Please check the weather to be sure you are as comfortable as possible.
SHOULD I BRING FOOD?
We provide light snacks and beverages upon your arrival and for full day workshops, we provide a healthy lunch. We aim to accommodate all dietary concerns and ask for 2 weeks notice in order to meet those needs. We have a water cooler on site so if you happen to have a canteen please bring it! We will have cups too, so if you forget it not to worry.
If you do not have experience around horses and are unsure if you have allergies, we suggest you come prepared! Most allergies to horses (or hay!) can be quickly taken care of with an over the counter allergy medicine. We do not provide this medication so ask you to bring your own. If your child is a participant, don’t forget to send it with them!
