Who We Support & Help
Why Do We Work With Horses?
The single most asked question is, why do we work with horses?
Nature provides horses with instincts and senses that are very astute. For their mere survival, a wild horse must be aware of their surroundings and quick to react. They watch for the slightest movement, especially threatening body posture. Horses know how to discern the difference between a calm non-threatening approach and anxious, nervous energy; immediately identifying individuals struggling internally.
When we can understand that they are sensitive to the stimulus of each participant, when they react to the stimulus through changes in their body language, participants must adjust their feelings and behaviors to work successfully with the horses. As facilitators listen to a horse’s non-verbal communication, together, they have the ability to walk participants through to finding life-altering change.
Participants are guided by the horses and facilitators to come to their own decisions and work on building life skills for where they are at right now! To move forward with their lives, to build skills and to truly tap into their potential!
