Packhorse Picnic, Adventure and Wellness Day

Packhorse Picnic, Adventure and Wellness Day

Our Packhorse Days have had amazing reviews and are a perfect way experience much of what the landscape has to offer, whist connecting with horses, yourselves and each other.

The day begins from Rydal. We pack up the horses with equipment and set off walking into the hills. Along the way you will be guided and informed on the sights, nature foraging tips, re-wilding wisdom and charming activities aimed at revealing the unique qualities of each group member.

We have the opportunity to find our voice and expression in some local caves before setting up camp on a stunning piece of private woodland pasture next to Rydal Water. Those that want to can learn the principles of how to start a fire. Ben takes the group on an exploration of body and mind through movement, stretching and balancing in nature. Bare feet and hands on earth, rock and tree. Learning how through maintaining awareness we can move carefully through extreme environments safely.

After a delicious lunch cooked on the fire, we get cosy and relaxed for meditations breath work and inner exploration. We groom and meditate with the horses for an intimate emotional connection.

If children are present there will be games and age appropriate adventuring and activities. The horse mindfulness will be modified into a play structure that they can identify with.

From here we go wild swimming. Learning how our breathing is crucial to controlling our body in the cold water. A hot cup of tea around the fire and sharing the curiosities of the day with some creativity and talking.

Refreshed, revived and rejuvenated, we walk the horses back along a track to their paddock.

All food and refreshments are provided. All age groups that can manage the distance unassisted welcome.

“Brilliant from start to end and a wonderful time”

Would absolutely recommend and do again. Brilliant from start to end and a wonderful time in all respects! I booked for myself and my girlfriend as a special thing to do on her birthday. It didn't disappoint and we both left feeling invigorated, yet totally relaxed and happy. Thank you so much!

“Everyone should try this”

Wow! Barefoot tree climbing and skinny dipping (optional) were my favourite parts of the day. But I loved every minute of it. I felt so welcomed and put at ease by Katherine and Ben. The food was delicious and the horses were the sweetest I have ever met. The whole group really bonded and swapped numbers at the end. It was amazing. Everyone should try this.

“Very special indeed”

I didnít know what to expect and Katherine and Ben were so warm and lovely that I felt really happy from start to finish. The attention to detail and efforts to to bond the group and bring out the best in us all were amazing. Katherine and Ben are so talented at what they do and their knowledge about nature and horses and human behaviour is fascinating. We soon all felt like a group of friends having a great time and sharing laughs and heartaches. Very special indeed.
