Equine Assisted Therapy
Personal Development With Horses
What is Equine Assisted Therapy?
Equine assisted therapy is a popular field where the gentle, accepting presence of a horse can provide a sacred, safe and healing space for you…
Horses are able to assist in this way because nature gifted them with highly tuned senses that intimately connect them to their environment. They are totally aware of their immediate surroundings and of any changes in emotion that may occur.
For example; the minute you have an intention, before you actually physically act, there is an arousal of emotion that rises within you, and it’s this that horses sense and see as a communication. “Emotion is their Language” Which means they have the ability to assess accordingly, respond and deliver precise communications moment by moment.
These ARE their natural instincts and with them being highly social herd/prey animals; being present, consciousness and aware of subtle, visual and emotional cues from fellow herd members are paramount to their survival in the wild. They “mirror” communications to each other both physically and emotionally, it is taken as information of how to act or be. Horses in domestication still possess this powerful gift.
They are able to lovingly and willingly cross the species barrier and share with us the wisdom that they so powerfully embody.

When you work with horses they see you as an integral part of the herd, and invite you to a judgement free environment.
Horses naturally practice assertiveness activities for their place in the herd. They have the ability to lead themselves authentically, they actually know no other way! With love and curiosity these values are consistently implemented day by day. We are blessed to be able to learn from their great example.
