How can horses help me live a longer, healthier life?
Physical Well Being– Working with horses does require some physical skills but mostly it requires that you have more awareness of your body as you interact during simple activities. Where am I in my body? Focusing inward and noticing where you are in your body helps you to become skilled at being present, fully centered and aware of your internal and external environment.
Emotional Well Being-When you are fully present, you will increase your self awareness, reflected in the immediate nonjudgmental feedback of the horse during your interactions. Being able to WATCH AND WITNESS what is happening allows you to choose the feelings that you wish to experience.
Spiritual Well Being-You will develop respect and trust during your time with the horse while creating a bond with another being who has no expectations, judgments or criticism. Horses teach you that being a part of something bigger than yourself is the key to feeling connected and creating strong communities in your life.
Social Well Being-The quality of your interactions with horses and other participants reflects your ability to be vulnerable and open to others. Horses will teach you that you can be accepted and loved for who you are in all areas of your life.
