Why horses?

  • a social and prey animal
  • innate relationship skills
  • integral part of our history
  • horses are honest-do not lie
  • ability to read our nonverbal communication
  • respond to us in familiar ways-reminding us of  people and things in our life
  • they become metaphors (symbols) providing insight into our lives
  • horses do not know our past, education, gender, race or other labels 
  • they are in the moment and respond immediately and honestly
  • they understand our intent
  • relationship without biases 
  • size and power can be intimidating-provide empowering experiences
