~ We are an adult equestrian facility ~
Located above the sparkling blue waters of Colvos passage, NHEC is a premier equestrian facility catering to individuals seeking peace and empowerment through equine friendships. We have recently joined the Gig Harbor Community and offer a unique and exciting paradigm that cultivates the bond between horse and human.
NHEC is under the direction and management of Sabrina Duncan. As an Equine Behaviorist, Sabrina started her journey with horses as a child, and every chapter since has been shared with equine friends. As a professional she has immersed herself in the Equine Industry as a Barn Manager, Horse Trainer, Lesson Coach, Clinician, Educator, Equine Advocate, AQHA and APHA breeder, and as a competitor in the AQHA, APHA, and NRHA. She considers herself a lifelong student of what horses can teach their human counterparts.
Are you searching for an activity that unites your physical, mental and spiritual needs while being one with nature? Equine assisted activities have therapeutic benefits that extend beyond physical exercise and nurtures your soul. NHEC's Adult Lesson Program provides both a mindful and relational horsemanship experience at a deeper level then traditional riding lessons. Feel empowered as you become attune with the horse's emotional intelligence, as well as their sensitive nervous system, while becoming more aware of your thoughts and feelings. The NHEC equine's are fantastic teachers, and have all been raised and educated through Sabrina's program.
