Health and well-being can be described as the achievement and maintenance of physical fitness and mental stability. A more holistic definition can be health and well-being as the result of a combination of physical, social, intellectual and emotional factors.
Our origins at Athena Herd have focussed on the achievement of the physical and mental stability of our herd of horses through the encouragement of movement and choice. We encourage and promote natural movement in all that the herd does whether that be the ability to continuously forage for food and eat. Living as a herd member and having access to paddocks, a sand school, surfaced and natural tracks here at Athena Herd provides that all important mental stability for the herd.
Why is this authentic origin linked to whole health and wellbeing so important?
This engrained origin is now being recognised by the growing number of people that are becoming part of this community, part of our herd. The natural environment created initially only for the Athena Herd horses, is proving to be such an important nurturing space for the people through the ability to be immersed in nature, be part of our community, be supported in all that you do here with us and reach your true potential.
