Horse Yoga


Horse trainer Cristobal Scarpati practices a unique horse taming method that uses yoga-like techniques as a respectful and non-violent way to create a meaningful bond.

Scarpati and his father Oscar founded the Doma India School in San Luis, Argentina where they specialize in working with horses that are wild, traumatized or chronically nervous.

According to their website,, the Scarpati family was inspired by the Ranquel Indians. “The Ranquel adored Mother Nature, believed we are her children and brothers to all other living creatures that share this earth. For the Ranquel, the horse was sacred, respected and its nature understood. For the Scarpati family, the horse is sacred.  “
