Fight Stress & Find Serenity

Why Horses?

Horses are prey animals and have evolved with keen intuitive abilities to keep them alive. Horses have a natural sensitivity to their surroundings that helps them survive and thrive. When we enter their realm, they challenge us to be aware of our thoughts, emotions, and actions.  Interacting with horses is a great way to relieve stress by learning to be present, by joining them in their world. They live in the present. They are not anxious (thinking about the future) or depressed (thinking about the past). Horses can reveal if a person is authentic, grounded and present.

Ground work with horses, combined with controlled breathing and meditation helps reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and calm body, mind, and spirit. Interactive horse activities provide powerful insight for tangible personal change (i.e. better communication, improved leadership, improved emotional control, etc.).
