In “Horse Guided Empowerment” the horses guide the practitioner and his interventions, and they also guide the client.
They have an opinion and therefore take on more responsibility. Our horses are allowed to use their intuitive abilities to react to our behavior and to connect to our hearts. They get in the process and act as true partners of the rider or trainer.
Their feelings are respected at any moment and they are never forced into anything.
Instead, we ask them to guide us. And they do, in the most amazing ways.
Horse Guided Empowerment is for everybody, and may be adapted to all kinds of training, riding lessons,
therapies, coaching, and learning experiments.
It is an open source because it is about connecting to the intuitive competence of the horse.
We step back, and let the horse do the therapy in our prepared environment. We don´t interprete, and we talk much less than other therapists. The client feels less observed, less judged, less lectured. He is then empowered to open up in a miraculous way and to heal himself. We believe that clients are more competent than we think, and will be able to make the transition from a horse guided environment to the real life by themselves. Horses are social creatures, they live in hierarchic sistems, they read and interpret all souls around them to find out if they are prey or predators. They have the same reactions as we do, flight, fight or freeze. Why is a ring packed with horses considered “un-real life?”
We believe it brings us closer to healthy behavioral patterns than an office setting. Horse Guided Empowerment puts health and well being on top, not the disease, illness or impairment that needs to be treated in therapy. The activities we have developed can be used in any setting, and will empower everyone – from the little child that wants to learn how to ride, to the manager diagnosed with chronic illness. They empower perfectly healthy people such as professional athletes, school teachers, parents. The activities work with any human being, and even over language barriers!They empower non verbal clients, and those with any grade of disability – or should I say specialty?
“Horse Guided Empowerment” is not called “therapy”, because we want it to be for everyone.Most of our sessions involve experimental psychotherapy, some are about business coaching and some are just about teaching horsemanship or riding skills – and are yet done differently!We are not inventing EAP/EAL new, but we are combining some existing models with new ideas, and most important, we invite the horses to share their innate positive healing energy with us.
Welcome to our journey!
May the horse be with you ...
