Horses Don’t Lie
Horses are transparent; how they feel is how they act. Horses don’t care about where you live, what you are wearing or where you are going after this. They exist in the here and now, and will let you know exactly how they are feeling at this instant.
The Prey Animal
Horses are hyper-vigilant; they exist in a state where they are constantly scanning their environment for information that will keep them alive. They can detect heart rate, respiration and muscle tension of others from 30 feet away. They are one big instant natural biofeedback mechanism.
A horse survives by determining quickly whether or not they can trust the intentions of those around them. To partner with and earn the trust of a 1,000 pound animal who exists in the here and now is a heartwarming and empowering experience. Horses help us to identify what we are experiencing at the moment, and can offer insight into emotional regulation and resonance.
See yourself clearly and without judgement through the eyes of your partnering horse. They don’t care what you’re wearing, what you do for work, what you drive, where you live. They just see You, Remember You.
All of what we hide behind while interacting with others: Ego, Hierarchy, Insecurity, Dominance, Judgement…. This environment with your partnering horse sheds all that and what remains is a neutral environment, truth, vulnerability..Breakthroughs..
The dynamics we set up in relationships (unconsciously) are hard to breakdown even when we want to. Where to begin, challenging exercises with your partnering horse will bring new experiences, new eyes to see each other.
By surviving in the wild for centuries, wild mustangs have developed enhanced hypersensitivity, herd dynamics, nonverbal communication skills, and the ability to “read” and mirror their partners in therapy……
Education of the public about the wild horse issues and through their personal interaction with the mustangs demonstrate the amazing capabilities of these animals.
These American treasures are rounded up annually to prevent over population on their natural habitat, and over 50,000 are currently in holding pens available for adoption.
