Introduction



Awareness with Horses offers learning and growth through the naturally occurring therapeutic and transformative opportunities horses can provide through equine assisted interventions. This helps in developing self awareness and well-being, and potential and skills which transfer forwards into peoples everyday lives.

 

Q&A

In a session or workshop what kind of activities will I/we be doing with the horses?

 

Participants are guided on how to connect with the horses on the ground in a safe space. This can include forming a relationship with one or more of the horses, reflecting with, or becoming in rythm with a horse, from simple mindfulness exercises (being), to learning to lead the horse with and then without a rope (doing).

 

Then whilst being professionally facilitated and/or coached, or as part of a counselling session, clients engage in experiential and/or experimental activities, and working with metaphor with what is happening in the present moment - which is guided by the horses. This can help bring about awareness and insights that you can take forward into your everyday lives.

 

So what would I/we be working on?

 

We are all unique and each of us may need to work on something different, depending on the type of session or workshop. You may already have set an intent on what you would like to work on, or you may need to just hang out with a horse therapeutically without any goal, but here is a guide to the areas you could work on:

•    Practice leadership, communication and presence
•    Develop emotional intelligence
•    Building self confidence and self esteem
•    Reduce anxiety and stress
•    Simply become more present and aware
•    Learn to form healthy relationships
•    Develop trust, empathy and responsibility
•    Explore ways of inspiring and motivating others
•    Influence people without being over dominant
•    Become more resilient in times of change

•    Reflect on challenges and develop insights 

 

What Participants Say...

 

"The day working with Sue, William, Arthur and Harry was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life. It took me deep into a spacious heart."

 

"I found the session profoundly moving. What you proposed opened a whole new world for me in terms of how we relate to animals. I loved it because it de-intellectualised relationships into real experience."

 

"The connection our daughter made with the horses has been amazing; I’ve watched her gradually come out of her shell and re-engage with herself and the world. At the end of one session my daughter said ‘ I love it here Mum, I can just be and forget my worries’."

 

“Thank you so much for a unique experience, and for a total break from stress, plus a few insights into how we allow modern life to herd us along when we shouldn’t. No doubt I’ll be back. Thoroughly recommended."

What to expect when participating in an equine facilitated experiential learning session

 

When you come to a group or one-to-one session at Awareness with Horses, we will first explore what you wish to address in your life. We will then design activities to assist you in meeting those goals in creative new ways.

 

For example, you may learn experientially how to connect with the horses, how to lead, and how to work with the horse at liberty. You may learn how horses communicate, and enter into a field of herd mindfulness and reflection. You may lead a horse through a series of obstacles first individually and then as a group, as a way to explore dealing with your own life obstacles.

 
During a workshop or session we enter a field of no wrong or right doing, a completely non-judgemental space for self-development and reflection, where we create an environment of safety, trust, confidentiality and openness for learning and growth through the opportunities that natural occur by engaging and working with horses.

 

Equine guided learning and growth encourages self mastery through connecting with the power and wisdom of horses, it is not about gaining power over the horses, or learning to train or control a horse.

 

No previous experience with horses is necessary. Many of our participants have not even handled a horse before. Safety and sensitivity for both the horses and the humans is always paramount.
