Horse Medicine Moon Walks are Ritualistic Grounding Work, meaning "all ground work."  Which in horse terms means, "no mounting"  and in human terms means "no stressors."  This walk & talk will consist of walking, breathing & being with the horses & others. If you would like to be with the horses even more, or you're interested in a Yoga With Horses session, we can meet privately another time.

Nandi Animal Rescue is the formalization of a lifetime pattern of rescuing animals, especially Horses.   Our mission is to keep Vermont's retired and over looked Horses in state to live out their days with love and companionship.  Many of these Horses enjoy people and become yoga horses, family horses or pasture mates.   Some need to regain health, trust or equine companionship first.  Nandi Animal Rescue supports Vermont Horses through life changes that threaten safety, health and regular care.

Kathy McNames grew up with horses, learning natural riding skills from her Grandfather.  This rescue/yoga/community farm work is both her passion & comedic relief.
