This peaceful and serene 100 acre property is situated in a beautiful valley, at the base of the Moonbi range near Tamworth NSW. It’s special features are the amazing granite rock faces, boulders, magnificent yellow box trees and flowing creek all of which help create the healing and transformational energy that is here. “Alchemy Place” means place of transformation. The word alchemy was the name given to the process where the first chemists tried to transform common lead into gold. So alchemy is the process of transformation, evolving to a higher place or state of being, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.  “Alchemy Place”  is a sacred space for me and my animals but it has also been setup to be shared as a special space to help humans and horses transform, grow to be the best they can be and reach their highest potential. It invokes stillness, calmness and presence. Treat yourself to a retreat. Connect with yourself, your horse and with nature.

 

           – AN ALCHEMIST TRANSFORMS THINGS WITH LOVE – LEARN ABOUT LEADERSHIP WITH LOVE –
LEARN TO BE A LEADER FOR YOURSELF FIRST AND THEN FOR YOUR HORSE.

The facilities include:- A very large 70m x 55m  fenced arena, round pens, small covered arena and demonstration area, playground, honeycomb, classroom and kitchen, showers and toilets. There is open space and timbered bushland great for a bush walk or sitting down and meditating to take in the stillness, as well as a magical creek. There are safe horse yards and some paddock availability. 

To reap the full benefits of your experiences here during courses we offer camping (tent, horse float, swag) or caravans, power hookups for your float, truck or gooseneck so you are able to stay fully immersed in the atmosphere. 

There is a fully equipped kitchen for you to self cater, with fridges, freezers, stove top, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, sandwich press, cooking utensils, plates, cutlery etc., dining and classroom area as well as  toilet & shower facilities. At some courses we can organise catering.

 I highly recommend sleeping in your swag/camp bed under the stars just outside your horse’s pen. It is a truly bonding experience for your and your horse. Of course have a back up plan in case of bad weather – float, tent, caravan. I have some caravan accomodation available – get in touch to find out more.
