Horses are prey animals that are highly instinctive and intuitive for survival. They pierce our armour and surface our true selves!
Like humans, horses are social animals, with defined roles within their herds. They have distinct personalities, attitudes and moods, they like to have fun...in other words, horses provide vast opportunities for metaphorical learning.
Horses are non-judgemental and listen without interruption or offering advice, clients feel unconditionally accepted. Earning the respect and cooperation of a horse can dramatically increase a client's sense of personal power and confidence.
Horses are prey animals and are therefore in a constant state of awareness for any sign of danger. They are highly sensitive and intuitive and this hypersensitivity makes them excellent mirrors to humans' deep emotions - emotions that may be unknown to the client or that they are unable to express for themselves. Horses are sensitive to non-verbal communication and respond accordingly to our emotional states, this enables growth and development.
Horses provide the perfect mirror for our deep and sometimes unconscious blocks, emotions and behaviours. They are great teachers in the here and now.
Experience the experience; working with real-life dilemmas in the field with horses, offers direct feedback and in the moment learning. Bringing things to life to make it a reality.
The horses offer a fun way to interact and try out new behaviours in the experience to see how they react. There is no right or wrong answer.
Our work is solutions based and we believe the person has the answers within, they just need to be given the space and opportunity to explore.
The experiential nature of the work means the learning results in full embodiment shifts in your being. The learning can be taken back into everyday life situations.
The experience is memorable and is kept alive! It has lasting impact.
