WalkSublime

Walking with horses in Kuitpo Forest

WalkSublime – Unique wellness walks. Immerse yourself in nature with a trained horse as your walking partner.

A ‘walksublime’ is a highly personalised, relaxing walk in nature with a trained horse matched to you as your walking companion. Designed for those with absolutely no horse experience you’ll be fully supported by your experienced trail guide and learn how to read and communicate with your horse.

When you’re relaxed enough that your horse starts to walk in synchrony with you as their leader, this is the ultimate experience. You’ll know it when it happens – you’ll feel it. A comfortable, natural connection based on mutual trust. Your guide will show you how you can reach this.

Why walk instead of ride?

Mindfulness comes naturally when walking in the company of a horse. An entirely different experience to riding. Free from concerns of ‘controlling’ your horse up there on their back, your mind is clear to notice your horse and what they may be noticing. Up close and personal with a majestic being, what a privilege it is to be their leader.

You’ll learn how to establish trust with your horse so you can navigate the path for your walking partner as the trail unfolds in front of you. This experience is all about becoming a leader and living in the moment.

There’s plenty of time to take in detail of your surroundings. To be attentive to your senses. To be present in nature. Slowly you start to experience the natural environment around you through your horse’s eyes.

You’ll walk in the ever-peaceful Kuitpo forest, a short drive from the little town of Meadows in the Adelaide Hills. Listen. Observe. Become part of the landscape you’re in.

This experience is 1.5 hours in length, and available over the Wellness wander weekend. There are limited places with both a minimum and maximum of 2 people per booking.

Your ticket includes insurance and fuel levy, forest permit and hay for your horse plus hire of appropriate gloves. The only prerequisite is a comfortable pair of walking or hiking boots!
