This accessible yoga class is specifically designed for horse enthusiasts across disciplines with all levels of yoga experience—beginners are welcome!
On the physical level, practicing yoga improves balance, posture, strength, and flexibility, all translating to a better seat, efficient cueing, and an overall better ride.
On a more subtle level, yoga teaches riders how to address and work through our fluctuating mental states, enabling us to find balance and focus. From this place of equilibrium, we connect more deeply and communicate more effectively with our equine partners.
Yoga and horses speak the same language: the language of the body. By learning how to move and breathe consciously in a yoga practice, we are practicing the very skills that allow us to “talk” to our horses through our bodies.
Practice yoga to the sounds of munching horses and that infamous smell all true horse people love. This unique class meets in the upstairs hayloft of Double S Quarter Horses, a beautiful open-air training and lesson facility in Bow, WA. Sue Sultze and Tom Pasma have graciously opened this space where horse enthusiasts can meet for a fun, non-intimidating, riding-inspired yoga practice. Ample parking is available.

Jessie leads an alignment-based, intuitive class, responding to the needs and concerns of participants, offering hands-on adjustments and variations that suit each practitioner’s needs. You don’t have to be a pretzel to do yoga!
Yoga gave Jessie the same type of emotional and physical benefits that horseback riding had given her for years when she discovered this powerful practice during college. While she didn’t have the resources to ride in Chicago during school, she could dedicate a few evenings a week to her yoga practice. Once she graduated and started riding again, she recognized that despite her time out of the saddle, she was a more balanced, focused, and effective equestrian.
Jessie has taught yoga in the studio, on the trail, in a hayloft, on horseback, to kids and adults. She is a Certified & Registered Yoga teacher and an equestrian of 18 years.
