feed your soul with the most powerful antidepressant
The horse-human partnership has evolved over the years. Although horses have been bringing peace, joy and healing to us forever, we now live in a more enlightened time. We have evidence that forces us to re-evaluate our relationship and place trust in their very intuitive and conscious ways. Equine Assisted Learning, Coaching, Wellness & Psychotherapy has shown evidenced-based efficacy in helping people get greater results in life.
We are a unique, client-led equine assisted coaching practice in Rochester, Illinois. We partner with horses to help you reignite your fire, find your joy, fuel your purpose and passion, and navigate through stress so you can embrace life wholeheartedly. Horses have a natural awareness to energy and emotion which makes our approach a fresh and highly effective alternative or bridge to traditional emotional therapy.
PURPOSE OF PARTNERING WITH HORSES
Horses are magnificent teachers for those of us striving to live in the present moment to manifest our full potential. As prey animals they have a heightened sensitivity to the environment for their survival. Their innate ability to sense others energies gives them the beautiful gift of reflecting our personal strengths and struggles. Insights through the joint work of a coach and a horse can be revealing and life changing.
HORSES ARE HERD ANIMALS
Horses have an instinctual need to be safe. They are able to detect incongruences in people and require them to connect with their truth – a space where they can be peaceful, balanced and present with the moment. Horses help us become better people. Through simple, purposeful interactions with horses we find understanding in attitudes and behaviors that shape our own lives.
HORSES SPEAK SOFTLY
When we come to accept horses as partners and really learn to listen, we benefit from their wisdom. It is our doing nature that puts us in our heads and derails us from feeling what’s in our hearts – or simply being. Sharing space, breathing, observing and sitting in the moment with horses frees us from the mental chatter that holds us back. Within these moments insights surface that lead to guidance in personal healing.
HORSES ARE TEACHERS & HEALERS
Connection is what horses set us up for. The ability to connect with ourselves, the horses, and one another.
When we remain open to the messages of the horses, we can be stretched in many ways, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
