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.

 

Options:


1. Equine facilitated experiential learning is about connecting with horses and 
exploring experientially anything you the client would like work on. You can set an intent or just allow the learning to happen. 
We work in away that is emergent and/or reflective. You are then facilitated doing various activities with the horse/s on the ground (no riding) and the learning 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, calmness, mindfulness and leadership skills into your everyday life. These can be group or one-to-one sessions.

2. Art of Horse Whispering is about stepping into the world of the horse and exploring the horse human connection phenomenologically. Compared with experiential learning above or coaching below, the process is less about having an agenda for self development and more about the whole experience that emerges, as you learn to build a relationship with the horse/s. These can be group or one-to-one sessions. Click here for more information.

3. Equine assisted coaching or counselling offers a combination of professional coaching or counselling and equine facilitated experiential learning where we focus on moving forward in your professional and/or personal life. You start off and end as you would in a normal coaching or counselling session sitting down and talking and between 50% and 80% of the time engaging with the horses. These are one-to-one sessions only and last for 90 minutes or two hours, we are offering the first session free for both equine assisted counselling or coaching click here for more information

Whichever way of working you choose we start with learning to build a relationship with the horse which is equal and not power over.

"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.
