Learning With Horses
3 DAY ACTIVITY HOLIDAY (Minimum 2 people max. 4)
Horses can teach us so much about ourselves if we take the time to listen.
HORSE WHISPERING is the art of listening in order to form good partnerships.
Horses communicate through body language and are very clear and honest about their feelings, intentions and boundaries. Although large and powerful they are very sensitive animals with the ability to pick up on our emotions and mirror them back to us. They are very willing to work with us once trust has been established.
Observing a herd can give great insights into “Non Verbal Communication”.
Humans communicate through verbal language. Very often the language we use is not clear to others. All too often we allow our personal space and boundaries to be breached and wonder why certain situations leave us feeling uncomfortable or lacking confidence.
Being with horses can teach us to “move out of our heads” and “into our bodies”. Thus allowing us to “FEEL” from within, to still our minds, control our energy and effectively reduce anxiety.
THERE IS A GREAT DEAL WE CAN LEARN FROM HORSES.
- Communication skills
- Setting and managing clear boundaries
- Stilling our minds and managing anxiety
- Conscious breathing
- Awareness of our bodies and surroundings
- Managing our energy levels in accordance with varying situations
- Leadership skills
- Team work
- Clarity of mind
- Overcoming obstacles and solving problems
- Creative thinking
- The ability to lead with firmness coupled with kindness and the list goes on and on……….
