Nourish Your Soul Women’s Group
Monday Evenings Quarterly 6p-8p:
Dates TBD in 2022
Nourish Your Soul is an opportunity to come out to the farm for an introductory evening of Equine Gestalt Coaching with the horses (or from the lounge depending on the weather and time of year)! This night is one of deep exploration of the self and others while building community in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Some nights you will find yourself in the client chair working one on one with Dr. Stacey to break through unfinished business or trauma that has been holding you back from living your most joyful life. Other nights, you will gain the borrowed benefit of watching others step up as clients. The result is unequivocally a night of deeper connection to yourself and this incredibly supportive, growing community of women.

Women’s Gestalt Circle
Wednesday Evenings 6p-8:30p
The Women’s Gestalt Circle is a group of women who come together weekly in a long-term container to support each other in manifesting our biggest dreams, releasing what’s holding us back, healing our deepest wounds and trauma, and creating a life that is intentional, impactful, soulful, and fun! Utilizing the transformational gestalt coaching method with and without horses, you will work on fully experiencing, accepting, and appreciating your whole self. Gestalt coaching can free us to move past pain, fear, anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. We can then discover who we really are, and allow ourselves to move forward in a more positive, healthy direction.

Yoga in the Barn
Sunday Mornings 9a-10:15a
Join Indigo Trails for a tranquil, truly unique yoga experience surrounded by nature, fresh air, and the farm’s majestic herd of healing horses. Offered Sunday mornings in the summer months, yoga at Indigo Trails is the ideal place to escape and spend some relaxing time outdoors breathing in the fresh air and taking in the serene, gently rolling landscape of the Sugar River Valley. Classes will be held either in the old barn or outside in the fields under the oak trees with horses grazing nearby.
1 hour 15 minute session|$20
Full Moon Sacred Circle
Horses, Yoga, Meditation, and Gong
We gather during the full moon in a sacred space of the indoor arena surrounded by 3-5 of the Indigo Trails healing herd to have an understanding of “who we are” and “why we’re here” that we can’t access with our rational mind.
You’ll be inside a fenced pen to keep the horses at a safe distance yet close enough for you to enjoy their peaceful energy.
Our beginner yoga class with meditation and gong is a safe place for you to try out yoga whether you’re an experienced yogi or it’s your first time. No experience necessary.

“Stacey is such a graceful coach that her clients are deep in their work before they get a chance to get in their own way. She holds them in such safety and compasssion as they actively heal old wounds, that they emerge whole and light from the experience.”
“I was able to break through exactly what was holding me back while working with Stacey. She created a safe and creative space for me to express myself. Thank you, Stacey!”
“Dr Stacey doesn’t miss a beat. She is clear and direct with her client, while holding the highest level of compassion and respect for them. She creates a safe space for her client to work and dig within. I felt comfort in her presence. What an empowering coach she is.”
This 20 acre parcel next to the Sugar River Conservancy and Military Ridge Trail has much to offer. We have a walking/riding path that wraps around the property and meanders through the old oak grove. There is a horse playground that offers joy and playfulness for both horses and humans alike. About 6 acres of land is fenced for our horse pastures and turn out so be sure to stop by and say hello to the horses over the fence. And at sunset you may find yourself sitting on the old silo pad watching the sunset and listening to the sound of the whippoorwill cranes and other wild life.
Nestled next to the outdoor arena, this beautiful space is a great place to entertain, watch the horses in the outdoor arena, cook over an open fire, and watch the stars. With two picnic tables and a seating area around the stone fireplace, there is plenty of room to relax and enjoy the peaceful serenity of the farm or read a good book in the swing.
The Upper Barn
The Old Red Barn was built in 1910 and is both charming and functional. The lower part of the barn has 8 horse stalls and an office space. The upper barn is above the horse stalls and is 30′ x 70′. There is an elegant rustic charm to this space with high ceilings, mason jar wagon wheel chandeliers, small white lights winding up the beams, and old pine floors where you can still see the dents in the wood from the horses’ shoes when they would dig in and pull the fully loaded hay wagons up the land ramp and into the barn. The best part of the upper barn is when you sit looking through the open barn doors in the evenings you have a front row seat to a breathtaking sunset. This space has been the host for many good times from yoga classes to graduation parties to barn dances.
The Indoor Arena & Lounge
The indoor arena is a 70′ x 140′ space with sand based footing mixed with Reiten Right. Automatic curtains run down both long sides of the arena and there are large sliding doors at either end. In the warmer months we keep the curtains and doors open giving the feeling of being in a covered outdoor space. The high ceilings have arched trusses and clear upper siding that also allows the sun to shine through giving it a light and cheery feeling. The entrance of the indoor arena has a tack up area, wash stall, and 4 lockers and is attached to the 30′ x 60′ heated lounge with large viewing windows into the arena. This is the place where I work with clients, hold my groups and parts of my retreats, work with horses and ride. We have hosted many events here such as fundraisers, horse clinics, and even a retirement party. This space has a peaceful happy feel to it.
The Outdoor Arena
The outdoor arena is a 70′ x 200′ space with sand based footing that is perfect for training the upper level dressage tests. With breathtaking views of the Sugar River, the old oak grove, and the adjacent Arbor, this space has hosted many equestrian clinics as well as it is a great flat surface for games and even an outdoor tent.
Rentals and Services
Indigo Trails has hosted a variety of events: equine clinics, private and corporate retreats, fundraisers, birthday and graduation parties and meetings to name a few. This list, of course, is not all that we are open to hosting. We welcome your ideas and want to see your dreams come true alongside our dreams. We throughly enjoy helping others find and create the perfect background for their special event.
We love to help our local community as well as those beyond our area open the door to personal growth. We are passionate about creating a property that is peaceful and inspries exploration on all levels. Animals are, of course, a big part of any event at Indigo Trails, LLC and offer us inspiration that will last in the memories and hearts of our visitors.
Indigo Trails is dedicated daily to coaching humans in partnership with horses, but we have also reached beyond coaching and into the deep well of abundance that horses, animals and nature provide — and the lessons our four-legged and feathered friends offer us when coupled with the wisdom of Mother Earth take us on a journey to the center of our own souls.
At Indigo Trails, we believe that growth and exploration are exhilarating. We have worked in concert with nature and our community of open-minded coaches and leaders to create an environment that offers you an accepting and peaceful place removed from judgement.
We have also developed deep community bonds and have formed relationships with other like-minded organizations and businesses who will provide additional services to further your experience at Indigo Trails.
