EQUINE FACILITATED LEARNING DAY For Self Development
Sunday 28th April 2019 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
Equine Facilitated Learning day for self development. Join us on the Somerset Levels for a fun day to set some goals and spend quality time in nature with our beautiful horses.
Would you like more confidence?
Would you like to communicate more clearly?
How about overcoming obstacles and setting healthy boundaries?
Equine facilitated learning can help with all of the above and lots more. Just being with the horses and spending time outdoors in nature can have an amazing effect in reducing anxiety.
Don’t take my word for it scroll to the end of the page and read what others have said.
It is not necessary to have experience with horses.
Working together with the horses we learn the importance of boundaries, both for humans and animals.
We learn the art of body language and mindfulness to enhance our communication skills.
Learning to take the lead, overcoming obstacles and working as part of a team.
These are really important skills that can have a great impact on your life. It’s not about control, it’s about going with the flow and finding ways to achieve your goals.
It seems to be well known these days that spending time outdoors in nature can have a marked effect on reducing anxiety. I read that Doctors in Scotland are now prescribing time in nature.
Sadly many people do not take the time to connect with nature. Life can be fast paced, many people spend their time in offices, shops or in front of a computer screen.
As a therapist it concerns me greatly, the rise in the amount of people suffering from anxiety and depression, particularly young people. It feels wrong on every level to me. There seems to be way too much pressure on youngsters at school and people in general these days. I don’t remember it being that way when I was young.
We invite you to re-connect in a peaceful location with our beautiful herd of horses who love interacting with visitors and will often mirror their feelings to show them there is a better way of being.
Bring your partner, your friends and your family to enjoy a day of simply being in the present moment and setting some achievable goals for a better life.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID.
“Today I had the most amazing day on the EFL course. It has really helped me work through some confidence issues and I will forever be thankful to the team that worked with us today. Not only am I now more confident in the presence of horses but I feel I have more confidence to pursue the career I want and put myself forward for opportunities that in the past I would shy away from. I would highly suggest this workshop for anyone that is lacking confidence be it with horses or anything else”. Nome Hunter
“Confidence working toward goals. Non verbal communication is much more important than I had previously realised. Horses like Humans have different energy levels. The course was well structured and we all made progress as a team. The introductory activity worked well as an ice breaker. It was very well facilitated”.
“On a recent visit to Meare in Somerset I had the pleasure to experience equine therapy at Horse Haven. This was the first time I had been in such close contact with horses and must admit I was slightly nervous but this was soon forgotten as I was expertly introduced to the horses by Suzannah, the therapist. I then found myself leading the horse I selected called Twister into the arena. Under the guidance of Suzannah what followed was one of the most wonderful emotional and unforgettable experiences that I have had. I would recommend that if you can you should try this amazing therapy for yourself. It will be something that you will never forget, I know I never will”. Kath Colman
“A better understanding of everyones differences but bringing them together as a team”
“I have worked around horses most of my life so was very sceptical. I am inspired to learn more about this work as I could not believe the effect this had upon my confidence, emotions and general wellbeing. Truly amazing”. D from Devon
“Thank you so much. Cannot believe how my thinking and confidence has changed. I have always been nervous around horses but not any more. At first it was challenging having to overcome fears but with gentle guidance it soon became one of the most enjoyable and life changing experiences”. Karen
“Yesterday I had one of the best days in my life! At Horsehavenuk.co.uk in Glastonbury. I wanted to overcome a life long fear of horses so went on this one day confidence and goal setting work shop. I can’t possibly write everything down but it was ‘magical’. Suzannah Horsehaven and Dean Dibble are magical people! Thank you both so much for sharing your magical world with me. I’m still on cloud 9 and can’t believe how quickly you and the gorgeous horses dispelled my fears! I still feel so much love inside my heart. Already needing another horsey fix . Thank you Helen Williams for your gentleness. Suzannah’s vegetarian lunch was divine. Cat and Lynn my team mates were a joy. The Whole day was just magical, magical, magical. Of course I send a huge thank you to the herd for allowing me into their wonderful world and giving me so much love, joy, tears and laughter. I highly recommend Horse Haven to anyone that wants to overcome fear of horses. Can’t wait to drop by in the new year for another course. Sorry for the long waffle but I’m still like an over excited kid today xxxxx”
