It’s common to see yoga classes, wellness treatments and indulgent massages offered at top spa resorts, but we know of only one which features horse-based therapy. At Miraval, a tranquil wellness retreat in Arizona’s Santa Catalina foothills, guests can spend some time with author and equine facilitator Wyatt Webb, working on better understanding their own communication process.
“Horses are intuitive animals, and by working with our horses, guests begin to understand patterns of behavior that may be working against them,” Webl explains. “The experience provides insight into how you deal with emotions, relationships, or hardships. Our guests leave truly knowing it is not about the horse…it’s about them.”
Thoroughly unique experiences like this make traveling to creative wellness resorts like Miraval worthwhile. It’s easy to find spas offering competent facials and hot stone massages, but where else can you gain significant insight into your behavior by working with a horse?
