Join us every Saturday afternoon during May and June 2021 for empowering sessions guided by a herd of horses at Desert Palm Dubai.
Amidst green fields, tchirping birds and palm trees, we invite you to enjoy the sunsets and the end of the weekend with a very different vibe:
In small group sessions, we run through a series of different activities each week.
You don't need any prior horse experience.
The sessions are not designed to teach you about horses, but rather about yourself.
Anyone from 16 years onwards is welcome.
No prior horse experience needed.
The group session is 350 AED per Person.
Saturdays 4.30pm to 7pm
Please use the below sign up form to confirm your place - limited seats.
Each session will be guided by 2 or 3 facilitators certified in Horse Guided Empowerment.
With your participation you are supporting the non-for profit Equestrian Association for People of Determination (EAPD).
For this session we work with the friendly herds of EAPD, and use part of the fee to generate revenue to keep their project going.
Founded in 1998 under the directorship of Satish Seemar and Ali Albwardy (CEO), the Equestrian Association for People of Determination was born. They have been assisting children with a variety of physical and developmental issues, including autism, Cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and Spina bifida. EAPD uses horse riding combined with therapeutic riding to achieve a variety of goals to help children develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities allowing them to focus on their abilities and not the disabilities.
The Corona crisis has hit them hard with many of the schools not being able to send the children for their usual classes.
New healing modalities like our regular yoga sessions, leadership coaching and team buildings and one on one empowerment sessions help to generate some income.
If you know of any sponsors who could be interested in supporting this much needed project further, please get in touch with them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"This is Andreea, I've been today at your session with the horses.
First, thank you for what you do, it's just amazing for me to be able to join these sessions.
I see my traits and I realise that these are what make me as a person and I don't have to hide them. I am proud of who I am and the horses helped me to see this.
As a side note, I know I don't have much patience and I move pretty fast in thinking and action.. today's exercise as a team only brought these traits up again that were a bit hidden
Today was exactly what I needed to get back on track and be myself again.
Thank you again so much!! ❤️"
