Horses offer their authentic selves to clients assisting clients in their growth. Horses have no reason to show up, to be judgmental or false in anyway, they are their authentic unique selves.
Horses are herd animals, this allows them to have an exquisite combination of their sensory and feeling awareness and a fullness of contact and relationship. Horses are prey animals, they are comfortable when authentic feelings and motivations are being acknowledged. Horses cannot be easily manipulated, they have this keen emotional sense, it is this sense that allows the horse to provide feedback to you and myself. Horses also are play animals, they are curious, they have a natural want to explore their environment. Encounters with horses are rich and meaningful. Knowing what horses offer, allows you to develop their awareness and their capacity for contact all from the feedback given by the horse.
- You can then process the information they have learnt giving them the capacity for growth through awareness and choice
- Horses model healthy functioning.
- Horses evoke experiences.
- Horses help people to learn presence, to live in the moment.
- Horses assist in growth, awareness and change.
Your experience contact with another, in the present moment, free of judgement or distraction. Horses teach you to find their truth, to reconnect to themselves, to their bodies and their experiences. We abide by and follow the codes of practice of the AHA and Equine Psychotherapy Institute.
