Creating self awareness and well-being, and developing potential and skills which transfer forwards into peoples everyday lives.”

We offer learning and growth through transformative interactions with horses. This includes one-to-one equine assisted coaching or counselling, and experiential learning.

How we work
We focus on the eco-psychology principles of developing and understanding ways of expanding the connection between humans and other-than-humans and the natural world. Powerful insights, awareness and aha moments often happen when the coming into relationship between human and other than human is reciprocal...

In a session or a workshop you get the chance to work with horses in away that is power with - not power over. The learning and awareness is in the relationship - not about fixing anything. This is also rooted in the humanistic and coaching principles we work with.

There are six different options we can offer you…

During all of our one-to-one  or a group sessions you will be guided on how to connect with the horses on the ground in a safe space and learn simple horsemanship handling and communication skills. In all our different ways of working this always includes building a relationship with one or more of the horses.

Our sessions usually include simple mindfulness and reflective exercises. This helps us become grounded before and during engaging with the horses, for example leading them, and connecting with them loose.

Then if you are participating in an equine assisted learning, counselling or coaching session, you will then engage in experiential and/or experimental activities, this could include working with metaphor in what is happening in the present moment - guided by the horses. This can help bring about awareness and insights that you can then take forward into your everyday lives. We are all unique and each of us may need to work on something different.

No previous experience with horses is necessary. Many of our participants have not even handled a horse before. Safety and sensitivity for both the horses and the humans is always paramount.

What Participants Say...
"The day working with Sue, William, Arthur and Harry was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life. It took me deep into a spacious heart."

"I found the session profoundly moving. What you proposed opened a whole new world for me in terms of how we relate to animals. I loved it because it de-intellectualised relationships into real experience."

"The connection our daughter made with the horses has been amazing; I've watched her gradually come out of her shell and re-engage with herself and the world. At the end of one session my daughter said "I love it here Mum, I can just be and forget my worries."

"Thank you so much for a unique experience, and for a total break from stress, plus a few insights into how we allow modern life to herd us along when we shouldn't. No doubt I'll be back. Thoroughly recommended."
