Nancy Weaver: I’ve been around horses since I was 5: cowboying and later, hunter/jumping. I stopped riding because I was troubled by the way horses were treated in the stables and arenas I visited. Stina Herberg’s demonstrations and the horses of St Vincent Academy brought me back into a relationship of discovery, respect and delight. I learned to meet horses as equals and on their own terms, and to gradually learn their language. What a heart opening experience and in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. In beginning to understand how the horse herd collaborates and cooperates, I began to understand how humans can as well.
Peggy B: I recently spent a couple of weeks at the Richmond Vale School and had the great fortune to take a few horse training lessons with Stina. Stina’s energy with the horses is characterized simultaneously by both calm and fire and it is inspiring to watch her interact with them. She is also an amazing teacher- her instruction is clear and non-threatening. The surroundings at the school are lovely with a view to die for in every direction and the people at the school as well as the local community were warm and welcoming.
Kim Knuit: I was intrigued after watching many of the video’s on youtube about dancing with horses. This pure connection with horses is what I always wanted. The lessons taught by Stina and her horses was a dream come true. St. Vincent is a treasure among the caribbean islands. You will find yourself in an unique tropical getaway. Nature at it’s finest. Stina is an excellent teacher and she is very passionate about her horses. You soon discover why. Jack, Magic, Spirit, Elena and Darling will show you the way to their heart. Watch and listen very carefully and try to relax and have fun. Simplicity is what I loved about the method. I can highly recommend a course with Stina and her beautiful herd of horses. Just come as you are and enjoy your journey.
Julie Mynors: A magical and freeing experience with horses as guides.
