In the booming field of Horses as Healers many different programs and approaches are available. This work is very powerful and when facilitated by individuals without appropriate professional training your mental and emotional well being can be at risk as well as the safety of the horse. It is in your best interest to research and evaluate the credentials of your facilitator.

Equine Experiential Learning: How It Works

Horses are social creatures that readily and honestly respond to the challenges inherent in forming and sustaining relationships.

Because horses are preyed upon in nature, these sensitive, mindful creatures have maintained a highly developed ability to respond to subtle changes in stance, muscle tension, breathing and arousal levels of other horses and predators. Horses respond to both positive and negative changes in the handler's behavior, offering people constant feedback and timely rewards for their actions. It is common language to say "a horse can sense your fear": they are sensitive to even the slightest incongruence of all emotions and intentions yet they are exceedingly patient and forgiving.

“Equine Guidance ®” provides a direct way, through interactions with the horse, to shift unconscius patterns of limitation and enhance individual and group potential.

In short, horses are emotional geniuses and great teachers.
