Athena Herd is a natural place to learn.

It is a beautiful 17 acre facility, set in the quiet West Kent countryside, near Paddock Wood. Founded by Jennifer and Brent Geach as a place dedicated to the wellbeing and positive health of their horses and other animals. At the heart, is a herd of barefoot horses that live together 24-7 on an extensive track system.

Athena Herd is a Community Interest Company which provides unique Equine Facilitated Learning experiences. These range from corporate leadership and team building to skills development for social benefit groups and local charities. In the case of other charity and community interest groups we will work with them to secure funding to support the work.

We also provide training in various specialist equine related topics, please visit out events page. There is a  great breadth of experience in our team from Legal to Therapeutic and Coaching.

We also act as a host site for visiting experts and professionals.

You can also stay at Athena, and so completely immerse yourself in the experience. You can stay onsite during your visit in our bell tents or tree house - find out more about our accommodation here.
