Each session, whether a group or one-to-one session is tailored for the individual/s participating. With our one-to-one sessions you can choose whether you would like to just work in equine facilitated experiential learning, or with the addition of coaching or counselling. The coaching option gives you the opportunity to work as you would with a business or personal development coach plus work experientially with the horses and counselling one-to-one sessions you work experientially with the horses and spend part of the time working as you would with a counsellor.


Whatever option you choose you will be facilitated in connecting with the horses, by first observing them and then engaging with them. Next by doing various activities with the horse/s on the ground the learning and awarenss is in the experience and the non-judgemental feedback the horses will give. You then take what you have learned, for example building rapport, self awareness, presence,  calmness, mindfulness and emotional intelligence into your every day lives.










"The conventional way of thinking is that humans have something to teach horses. We turn this on its head and focus instead on what horses can teach us about ourselves, others and the world at large. By their natural biological make-up horses have a lot they can show us, and through equine experiential learning and/or coaching or counselling, can help us unlock our true potential, and move forward with what has meaning and harmony in our lives."

Our Approach


Adventures with Horses believes that every person is the expert on themselves. We hold a safe space of trust, confidentiality and unconditional positive regard - as do the horses. By their very nature, horses provide honest and non-judgmental feedback by picking up on our body language and responding with incredible accuracy to how we are in the present moment. This can help us become more aware of what we need to focus on to get from where we are to where we want to be, or simply practice mindfulness, emotional intelligence and connecting with nature.


“Horses have been transporting us on outer journeys for thousands of years. In the 21st century, equine facilitated learning is a profound new way of horses 
transporting us on inner journeys from where we are to where we need to be.”


Equine facilitated experiential learning can help to bring about calmness, presence, clarity, an "aha" moment and/or a feeling of well-being.  Working experientially and phenomenologically with the horses we can look at goals or challenges, or simply focus on the naturally occurring learning and therapeutic opportunities they can provide  in the present moment. The learning is in the experience and the non-judgemental feedback the horses will give as we explore how to enter a relationship with them which is power with, not power over.
