We can translate our learning from the horse easily into our human social environments of family, friends and work. Horses show similarity to humans in their emotional (limbic) brain and in their need for socialisation. In emotional and social aspects, relating to horses can serve as a model for participants to use in their relationships with others. Horses provide honest and immediate feedback about the person’s underlying emotional state. Horses provide us with a way to see our internal landscape and how we operate in the world. This provides humans the opportunity to learn self-regulation.Through working and interacting with our herd the opportunity exists to explore current group dynamics within the participating team.
What do The Experts say »
Possible areas of growth and development
We design a performance solution program consisting of exercises partnering with horse, that give scope to improve performance.
Equine facilitated human development (EFHD) is an experiential approach that integrates equine-human interaction to provide a learning experience to bring about positive change for an individual or group, personally or professionally. Working with equines provides opportunities to learn critical life skills such as self-awareness, trust, respect and honesty. In addition, participants gain self-esteem and self-confidence while learning how to work with such large and powerful animals, while being challenged to solve problems, communicate clearly, develop social skills and empathy and learn leadership skills.

There is no way that the horse will ever try to take advantage of you. He’s as honest and as truthful as anything you could ever work with. He has no ego that gets in his way. He has no pride that gets in his way. He doesn’t know what win or lose is. And those are the four things that get in the human’s way.
The horse will teach you if you‘ll listen.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
We offer unrivalled facilities in a friendly and professional environment. We aim to work outdoors as much as we can due to the nature of our equine team. We have access to 450 acres of fenced paddocks and forest area, as well as various purpose built arena’s, round pens and in-outdoor arenas.
