Private Sessions

Miraval equine private offerings are created for our guests to experience the power of these majestic horses as a reflective medium for healing and exploration. Our talented equine professionals customize and tailor the time to hold sacred space for deep connection and an authentic experience.

Seasonally Offered

Common Ground: Self-Leadership for Effective Communication

Experience the powerful dynamics of non-verbal communication and how this influences your ability to lead yourself and others. In this unmounted activity, you will move with a horse around the pen, engaging tools of communication, collaboration, and creativity without speaking or touching. The insights and skills you discover may apply equally to personal and professional relationships. 110 MIN | Private: $150 Semi-Private: $125 per person

Horse Sense

Enter the inner world of Miraval’s equine herd. Learn about horses’ lives by exploring their interactions with people and with each other. Walk their pastures and paddocks and lend a hand with their daily needs. Gain an understanding of horse-keeping and share the deeper connection that comes with mindful caregiving. 75 MIN | Private: $150 Semi-Private: $125 per person

MIRAVAL EQUINE MEDITATION

Explore this unique meditation experience that allows your active mind to settle inward and unite with your body. Engage with a horse while exploring mindfulness, connection, and balance. Wear closed-toe, sturdy shoes, comfortable long pants, and sunscreen. Remember your Miraval water bottle! Private: 75 MIN | $150 Semi Private: 75 MIN | $125

Journey to Self

The journey to self in narrative mythology is an archetypal story pattern. A hero goes on an adventure, faces trials and temptation, grapples with a crisis, and undergoes a transformation in consciousness before returning home. Guided by our trained equine specialists, guests will lead horses through a series of obstacles that represent challenges and triumphs from their own lives. This exercise offers a way to reframe your experience in a narrative that casts you as the hero of your journey. 110 MIN | Private: $150 Semi-Private: $125 per person

AN UNFORGETTABLE CANVAS

Tap into your creative spirit by using the side of a horse (that’s right, a horse!) as your canvas. We use a living canvas to remind us to stay present and grounded in our storytelling. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring a hat, sunscreen, and water bottle. Note that this can be a messy experience. Seasonally offered. Private: 110 MIN | $150 Semi Private: 105 MIN | $125
