What We Do
Horses are the masters of emotional intelligence. They have an innate ability to read and process emotions as information. They live and operate in the state of presence and complete awareness at all times and utilize the information that they receive from everything all at once, instantly. Horses can see details simultaneously with perceiving the whole picture because they are aware of physical presence and the non-physical sphere of energy. They are constantly synchronizing their energy with all that is around them.
As an animal that is preyed upon in nature, the horse has a highly-developed ability to sense changes in the environment and arousal level of other herd members. Horses intuitively sense the emotions and energies around them, and in turn mirror and reflect those emotions and energies when interacting with us. They respond to what we are actually communicating, often knowing our intentions before we do and providing honest and instant feedback. The horse becomes the mirror in which we see ourselves and how we can measure our energy, effectiveness and non-verbal communication. Horses operate on pure authenticity and congruency which gives us a genuine interpretation of our reality and helps to confirm our own truths. Through their connection to our authentic self, horses transport us beyond our limitations into the boundless.
What is Equine-Guided Learning (EGL)?
Horses inspire moments that facilitate rapid change and lasting results. Humans partner with horses in a fun, safe way by engaging in experiential learning activities. Studies consistently prove people learn best through direct experiences with 90% retention. The connection with horses invites participants to experience “learning by doing" with reflection. Through equine-guided learning we expand our nonverbal awareness and learn valuable tools that aid in our personal and professional growth.
In EGL, no prior horse experience is needed. All activities take place on the ground; the horses are not ridden as part of the learning experience.
“Accepting that other species can think, feel and make intentional decisions is a game changer for everyone.”
