Horses are highly social and empathic animals who have served alongside humankind for centuries.
In today’s world of expanding consciousness horses are being recognized, in the field of Equine Assisted Learning, as valued teachers, guides and healers for their role in facilitating deep inward journeys for those seeking personal discovery and development.
Horses are often referred to as a mirror – mirroring back to us those subtler, perhaps unconscious parts of our self that keep us stuck, and inviting us to connect more deeply with our body and intuition.
As an animal who is naturally preyed upon in the wild, horses have developed a highly sophisticated ability to sense emotional energy as a means of survival. Picking up on subtle body language and incongruency, they provide immediate and authentic feedback in response to our emotions and intentions.
