Equine Influence
Why Horses?

The horse, a magnificent creature of power, grace and beauty, is also a teacher and mirror to humans. Interacting with a horse can teach you to fine tune and expand your interpersonal skills in an easy, yet profound manner.

Horse facilitated activities help people recognize and move beyond the coping strategies associated with surviving in a competitive world.  Participants develop a thriving mindset capable of endless compassion, innovation, energy, adaptability and creativity.

Just looking at a horse can instill in a human a feeling of power, grace and beauty.  Just their size alone inspires a heightened state of awareness. Horses can be consummate facilitators in the work of human development.  These intelligent, sensitive creatures respond to both positive and negative changes in the handler’s behavior, offering people constant feedback and timely rewards or consequences for their actions.

As horses are social by nature, they readily respond to the challenges inherent in forming and sustaining relationships.  As animals that are preyed upon in the wild, they have also retained a highly developed ability to sense changes in the stance and arousal levels of other herd members, an ability they easily transfer to interactions with humans.  Horses see through the slightest incongruities of emotion and intention, yet are exceedingly patient and forgiving. 

Through a series of specially designed activities, participants deepen awareness of personal issues, core feelings and areas of bodily tension that inhibit their ability to reach their true potential.  A tremendous boost in self esteem and confidence comes from learning how to establish boundaries and direct a thousand pound creature through mental focus, creative visualization and clarity of intent.  These skills have far ranging applications linked to increased success in personal relationships, career and parenting.
