EQUINE ENRICHMENT WORKSHOPS//
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING
Partnering with a horse is powerful and takes an abundance of mutual trust from both horse and human.
The horse has a unique way of pointing out something that is keeping you stuck and our skilled equine specialists can help communicate what the horses are telling us.
Currently we are not able to provide Counseling services. However, as PATH certified Equine Specialists in Mental Health and Learning we are offering Experiential Equine Connection Workshops and Equine Assisted Learning sessions. Once we obtain full licensure we will offer Equine Counseling Services.
All of the work we do is ground work, meaning we are not mounted on the horse. The heart of our work is to help people utilizing the horse as a partner.
Equine Enrichment Workshops
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to unwind, re-center and have a deeper understanding of what equine connection is. Topics include mindfulness, relationships, honesty, self-confidence, kind-leadership, empowerment and more.
There are limitless benefits from the experiential learning that happens with horses.
We offer our workshops to individuals, small groups, families, professionals and work groups. Typically sessions are 90 minutes, but we also offer half day retreats (4 hours) with lunch included. Each workshop can be designed specifically for your needs and is a combination of activities/team building and horses.
Horses are wonderful teachers and offer so much wisdom if we can learn to listen.
Equine Assisted Learning
We offer Equine Assisted Learning sessions to individuals and small groups. Currently individual sessions are available for clients age 10+. Typical sessions are 90 minutes. Each session is tailored for the individual or small group.
Similarly to how we teach the equine connection workshop we teach horsemanship from a relational approach. We ensure the horse is a partner on this journey and teach that first and foremost it is about the relationship. We teach hands on horsemanship skills coupled with real life implementation. Activities may include grooming, games, art activities, leading, herd observation, groundwork exercise.
The horses provide a unique insight that allow growth in multiple areas including increased communication skills, self-awareness, patience, empathy, and self-confidence.
We are happy to tailor an equine experience or equine assisted learning group to your specific needs.
"Horses teach us about honesty and authenticity, for they do not know another way of being. They do not mask how they feel or try to be something they are not.
Horses respect when we are honest with ourselves, our emotions, and our state of being. When we own how we feel, the horse see us as congruent. When we are congruent the horse senses less threat. Being genuine, now that is the optimal time for connection work!"
