Equine Assisted Coaching Program
Coming Summer 2021!
Equine Assisted Coaching (EAC) allows participant's a unique environment and experience that promotes physical, occupational, and emotional growth through meaningful engagement with horses. EAC involves non-riding human and horse interactions from the ground with the coach as a facilitator. These sessions guide participants on a journey of learning and understanding and individuals are encouraged to transfer the experiences they've had with the horses into their personal and professional lives.
EAC is one of many different types of equine-assisted work that help individuals work through circumstances that are hindering their growth. EAC can help people establish healthy relationships and boundaries in addition to improving leadership skills and self-esteem. EAC can also help people reflect on previous life experiences that are preventing them from moving forward in either their personal or professional career. Equine Assisted Coaching allows individuals to build healthy, authentic relationships at home, work, and school through meaningful engagement with horses.
What is so unique about horses?
- They don’t care about a human’s history or old stories. They have no agenda and don’t want to control. Instead, they mirror and respond to the participant’s internal information that is projected subconsciously through their body language and energy. This is very powerful…as it is new information that is brought to the participant’s awareness, the consciousness mind, for exploring, processing, and reflection.
- A horse is considered a prey animal and are masters of instinct; they are super sensitive and have extra sensory perception. They feel and can pick up the subtleties in a client that they are not consciously aware of. This provides such useful feedback as it pulls curiosity out of the client so they can see things more clearly, resulting in discoveries they were not aware of, or had been looking for. And when a participant makes a life breakthrough, they feel so much more confident and ready to do something new and different.
Being with a 4-legged friend, also results in healthy emotional and physical benefits.
In the presence of a horse, the participant’s blood pressure and heart rate may be lowered, stress alleviated, and that wonderful feeling of inner peace is sparked. When this happens, emotional negativity is greatly diminished, and the participant is then in a present state to feel emotionally safe, and this is when the magic happens.
My Equine Assisted Coaching Program soon to be based out of Gypsy Magic Equine Outreach/Vineyard Oak Dressage Training in Sloughhouse, California.
