Interaction with guests
I live on the property in a separate house that is indirectly and remotely attached to your private suite. Your wing is the main floor of a two storey building - your level opens to the backyard and pool area. There is a separate apartment on the lower level of your wing. Your suite is very private and you will not have to interact with my family unless you choose to do so.

Sky Haven Equestrian Centre is a family run business that focuses on individual or small group lessons personalized to your goals and experience around horses. We offer in-depth learning for beginners and experienced riders, both on and off the horse. Whether you are looking to further your riding skills, or just looking to build your confidence and self-knowledge by working with horses on the ground, we have something for you. Our focus is beyond learning new skills, it is about building trust, confidence, and clarity both in and out of the stable.
We have a boutique approach to adult lessons and unless riders are very experienced, we conduct individual lessons. Experienced riders spend a full hour riding for $55.00. Lessons of 40 minutes plus 20 minutes grooming and tack up are available for all riders for $45.00/hr. Beginner, dressage or jumping lessons are offered. Group lessons for children to age 12 are available: semi-private $40/hr. and group $35/hr. Prices include HST
Individual or Group Groundwork ("Horse Whispering")
Learn how to interact with horses, how to read their body language, how to communicate with your body and breath, how to move, lead and calm them and yourself. These sessions are priced according to the number in the group and average between $10-$25 per person per hour depending on group size. Maximum group size 6, minimum group size 2.
Interact one on one with horses in various ways – some people enjoy grooming and brushing and feeding the horses and find it very relaxing especially as the horses also love to receive this attention. It is also possible to participate in the barn daily work caring for the horses. This can be relaxing and fulfilling.

Family, friends, travelling & learning are my passions. I live with extended family and lots of pets. As my family has grown up my focus has shifted to finding the deeper meaning in all life - I think the magic I always hoped for is really there! Our home in Bethany is the perfect place to retreat, restore and explore.
