What to Bring: We recommend that you wear sturdy, closed toe shoes, long pants, and a shade hat. The weather can change from cool to very warm in the morning hours, so it is best to bring layered outer wear. You may also want to bring water and a snack.

"Swan Center Outreach and Swan Center for Intuitive Living have provided me with the confidence and wisdom I needed to pursuit my goals in life as well as the inner peace and discipline to stay focused and committed. I am deeply and completely grateful and consider myself very lucky to know that such an inspiring place exists and that I have had the opportunity to be a part of it."
"It was an amazing experience, I learn how to connect myself with the horses. if you are an actor or an artist I would totally encourage you to try it, as an actor I found the whole program really helpful, because I worked a lot with energy in terms to guide and lead the horse which I later apply in my career. The environment and the people made it even better, they made me feel secure and brave. I totally recommend this place."
"As an avid equestrian and a person who has loved and handled horses all my life, I was a bit naive as to what my Swan Center workshop would offer me. However from the onset of my day, I discovered how I projected myself in the world and the true impact of my thoughts, actions on myself and the world around me. Through interactions with the horses and the leaders of the class, I discovered avenues to better communicate with myself and others to create positive outcomes. Swan Center workshops offers tools based on co-operation, respect and fun. The Swan Center is an asset to the community and to all the furry friends in it too!!"
