Equine Assisted Coaching FAQ's

Why Horses?

Horses are experts at non-verbal communication. They see through bravado and facades, so working with horses helps strip away unhelpful layers of ego. Like a mirror, they reflect back their sense of who you really are. From this reflection, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, unearthing self-limiting beliefs and moving towards aligning words and actions, and ultimately a more authentic self.  That is when real and lasting change occurs.  That is why we work with horses.

Who would benefit from this approach?

Equine Assisted Coaching/Learning is a powerful and effective approach for people of all ages. It has been shown to have incredible impact upon individuals, couples, families, groups, teams and corporate leaders. We have a range of group and individual exercises that will bring out in each person what they most need. Family groups can include extended family members such as grandparents and siblings. EAL is suitable for anyone who has an interest in enhancing their skills or developing self awareness.

Custom Solutions

We recognise that every client is different, so we take a bespoke approach to your training. A pre-session consultation helps us gauge your individual needs and prepare for an exceptional learning experience. Even so, when it comes to it, the horses themselves will show you what skills you most need to learn.
