Horse Yoga


(Video Link)

The Doma Indian School is a horse farm in San Luis, Argentina. It's operated by the father and son team of Oscar and Cristobal Scarpati. They've developed a meditative exercise practice that help calm wild or traumatized horses. It involves prolonged skin-to-skin contact with the horses in poses that relax them. The Daily Mail quotes them:

'Acts that are widely considered dangerous (due to the intense physical contact between horse and tamer) become safety techniques and methods by which the horses quickly lose the fear (spooking/sensibility) which renders them so unpredictable.

'The removal of fear (spooking/sensibility) using the Scarpati method guarantees a loyal relationship with an untamed horse.'
