Move over goat yoga, at The Fairview guests get to find their inner peace one gallop at a time through horse yoga. Guests may book a private horse yoga session through a partnership with Maverick Horseback Riding. The 2.5-hour experience is customized based on what a guest needs most from their session. Generally, the ride begins with 30-minutes of breathing and stretching exercises on solid ground, during which you’ll also learn the fundamentals of horse riding if needed. On your trek, you’ll practice breathing and healing through movement. You’ll also work on lengthening your spine, finding your center, and your alignment. After more than an hour trotting through breathtaking countryside you’ll return for a cool down session. Guests may choose to extend their day with longer rides, more yoga, or catered onsite meals.
The horse yoga experience begins at $225 per person for a 2.5-hour session, plus the cost of an overnight stay at The Fairview (weekends require a two-night stay); must book in advance to confirm availability.
About The Fairview
Located in the heart of downtown Austin, just four blocks from the trendy SOCO (South Congress) district, The Fairview bed and breakfast is a historic landmark property affectionately known as The Gullett House. Built in 1910 by an early Texas cattleman, the home was eventually purchased by Tom Gullett, the first superintendent of the local school district. In the early 1990’s the home first transitioned into a bed and breakfast and in 2000 Jimi and Vivian Ballard purchased the property as their home. After extensive renovations, the Ballard’s reopened the estate as a bed and breakfast in 2014. Today The Fairview is a six room, family-and-pet friendly, B&B with a modern interior and thoughtfully preserved historic elements. The Fairview is located at 1304 Newning Ave, Austin, TX 78704.
