Equine-facilitated Personal Development

There is so much that we can learn about ourselves, by working with our equine partners.  As prey animals, horses are very sensitive to the environment and other animals in it.  This includes humans.  So by working with equine-facilitators, as humans, we can learn about ourselves, how we are perceived and how we move and communicate with others in our world.

This type of personal and professional development supports your work to become more genuine and confident in both personal and professional settings.  Contact us to discuss an event for your team or workplace.

Upcoming Events:

Listening to Your Inner Wisdom:  An Equine-assisted Weekend for Women

Do you need time out from the multiple demands of work, family and life?  Would you enjoy a weekend away, watching and interacting with horses while learning about yourself?  Come be a kid again and re-discover the childhood joy of interacting with horses and benefit from understanding what your body language and non-verbal communication tells others. Then, you can more effectively hear what your body is telling you about others. We will be observing and communicating with the horses “on the ground”, no previous horse or riding experience is required.
