Learning to be with yourself in the company of horses...
The Healing Equine Ranch is an environment that appeals to individuals and groups for many different reasons. Students come to us as adults who want one-on-one understanding on how to connect and interact with horses, or to reacquaint themselves with basic principles of horsemanship. In this scenic corner of tranquility, hidden from the loud distractions of daily life, you and a small group of friends or family can share time and learn how to communicate better— with the horses and one another.
Our primary method of teaching individuals and groups is to introduce the principles of natural horsemanship while focusing on what the person brings to the table. Through herd observation we can examine the body language of horses, understand what is important to them and how they use their focus, energy and intention to get what they need. After partnering with a horse of your choice, you will start to build your own unique relationship through a series of exercises both online and at liberty. As the horse starts to understand what you are saying and offers information back, you can see the connection grow based on mutual understanding, trust and rapport. Strengths, as well as weaknesses, are exposed and new skills are developed. A typical program consists of four sessions, but individual and custom study programs are available. Through discussion we can determine together what you’re seeking from your experience and suggest which program best fits your needs.
At The Healing Equine Ranch, you’ll have a special opportunity to interact with our horses safely and naturally in their environment. Our horses have all been rescued and brought back to optimum health. In this state of emotional, physical and mental balance they can truly reflect the human and act as giant biofeedback machines.
In learning to review our reflections in the mirror of a horse’s reactions, we can learn to control our own energy in everyday life situations. Outcome is improved leadership and communication skills, increased confidence and self-esteem in relationships, and the ability to establish healthy boundaries. What follows naturally, then, is the ability to develop a positive outlook on life. Come and see for yourself. Be a part of the healing that happens at The Healing Equine Ranch.
