Horse and Goat Yoga, a rescue-based non-profit located off a farm in Ambler, PA, offers therapeutic yoga sessions with goats and horses, private events, cuddle time and goat adoptions for the Greater Philadelphia community.
While participating in horse yoga, guests have the opportunity to concentrate on their balance, strength and breathing techniques. For those who are equestrians, Horse and Goat Yoga describes this as an opportunity to learn how to further connect with your own horse. For those who are not equestrians, it is a chance to explore horses and begin to grow a connection. Each session costs $49 and lasts for one hour and 30 minutes.
Perform yoga exercises led by an instructor while the baby goats climb on top of your back and run around in their onesies. Each session costs $34 and lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Cuddle with the Goats
Another option to interact with the goats is during Bottle Feeding and Snuggle Time. Most of the goats living at the farm are rescued and were taken away from their mothers at a young age. According to Horse and Goat Yoga, all of the goats enjoy spending time with each visitor and appreciate pets, rubs and bottle feedings. After eating, they like to curl up and take a nap!
Horse and Goat Yoga also offers exclusive sessions. Events that have taken place in the past include boy and girl scout trips, team-building events, reunions and birthday celebrations. Each session lasts for two hours and guests will have the option to participate in a yoga session, feed and cuddle the goats, interact with the horses and enjoy a lunch or snack. The cost for private events is $35 per person with a minimum of three people per group.
On a regular basis, the non-profit has goats up for adoption. If one decides to adopt, it is required that two goats be adopted as a pair. The number of goats available fluctuates due to ongoing adoptions and rescues. Contact Horse and Goat Yoga to set up a meet and greet.
