Pasture Perspectives

This monthly event is exclusively for equine professionals serving the Lowcountry of South Carolina. The purpose is to engage in some unbridled self-care, network and make new friends, feel supported, come away with some new ideas or greater perspective, and revel in our shared love of horses without any of the weight of your daily responsibilities. These gatherings are held on the first Monday of every month, from 9am until noon. Each event will be capped at 12 participants to ensure an intimate atmosphere. 


 

When was the last time....


  • you truly took a breath for yourself, away from the demands of the stable, arena, office or traveling service grind?
  • you set boundaries that honored your time and energy as much as you honor the needs of your clients and the horses in your care?
  • you felt truly supported and inspired, surrounded by a like-hearted community that understands the unique challenges you face?
  • you allowed yourself to rest and relax so you could rediscover your passion for horses, business and life?


What if...

  • you could spend some dedicated time nurturing your passion for horses and reflecting on possibilities while nourishing your own well-being?
  • you could gain some new perspectives and lean into a little networking at the same time?
  • you could spend a little dedicated time each month where exhaustion, judgement and overwhelm aren’t your constant companions?
  • self-care stopped being a luxury or fantasy in your life and became a regular part of your monthly routine?
  • there really is a world where you don’t have to feel so alone navigating the highs and lows of your career as a dedicated equine professional?
