    WHY USE HORSES

    • Horses assist in developing within us the three nonintellectual, nonrational aspects of our Intelligence:
      • Instinct
      • Emotion
      • Sensation
    • We tend to value our ability to be rational over the nonrational parts of our being but our ability to be sensitive and empathetic relies on these aspects of emotional intelligence. Horses assist in this learning because they make little use of the reasoning function. Instead, their sensitivity to their surroundings teaches us to pay attention to ourselves as emotional sensate beings. This awareness allows us to be more authentic in our relationships with others.


     HORSES CAN HELP US:

    1. Become aware of nonverbal communication
    2. Improve attention, mindfulness and focusing abilities
    3. Become aware of incongruence: when our actions don't match our emotions
    4. Identify and respect boundaries in ourselves and others
    5. Confront fear and develop confidence
    6. Recognize how we project our own emotions onto others
    7. Learn to stay in the moment
    8. Cope with stress
