“The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave.” Ronald Duncan
For thousands of years, horses have been essential to human survival. They have been a source of transportation, food and physical labor. Throughout human history the horse has been by our side, we have loved, owned and ridden horses, but what we are tapping into more recently is how horses speak to our hearts.
The beauty of working with horses from the ground, is understanding that they are non-judgemental, listen without interruption and offer clients the immediate gratification of being unconditionally accepted. Horses take crap from no one, and while being large and powerful, they create a natural opportunity for someone to overcome fear and develop confidence and nurture ability to confront challenging situations in life.
Horses are prey animals and are in a constant state of awareness for any signs of danger. They are highly sensitive and intuitive which makes them excellent working partners.
