More Information About Our Gracious Host
" My love of horses was evident right from before I could walk, but I had to wait until I had finished several career directions before embracing horses as the centre of my work.
We have been running the yard for over 7 years, with livery, equine training and courses on connection and communication. Alongside working with troubled horses, we work with people who find themselves struggling in the world, be that neurodivergent, mental health problems or physical impairment, pupils who cannot access a school classroom, and at risk persons.
We use the same emotional framework for both horses and humans, utilising the mammalian brain emotions to help bring regulation, confidence and ultimately the ability to make better decisions.
We enjoy many non conventional equine-human interactions including agility and Trek style training, basic classical horsemanship, scent trailing etc with every encounter having the horse's wellbeing and joy at its heart. "
I don't have a horse right now. Or the horse I visit the most, is not mine, but belongs to a lesson stable or a friend. Is Emotional Horsemanship still useful for me?"Absolutely! Emotional Horsemanship puts a 50/50 focus on your emotional intelligence, and the horses emotional expression. There is SO MUCH we can do even without a horse to better prepare us when we do meet any horse, or one day buy our own. The skills you will learn in Emotional Horsemanship you can take to any horse, anywhere, and forge a friendship with them straight away. They will help you be safer, because you will FEEL and KNOW and UNDERSTAND when the horse is getting upset, or when the horse has potential to do something hazardous. You can actually develop the skill to predict accidents. It is not easy, but definitely possible!
I struggle to know what I am feeling. I am stuck in my head all the time! I am not an emotional person. Can this work for me?Yes! You ARE an emotional person. But societal conditioning, your normal education, and your hyper developed human brain has over developed your rational, thinking system. Your emotional system is still there in your brain. It mixes in the same region as memory and movement processing. You can access it. Because you don't learn emotional awareness. You REMEMBER IT. You got this! You can do this! Reclaim your empathy
My horse is 'naughty'. He/she is not kind or sweet natured. How on earth can I be empathic and kind to my horse when they try to hurt and annoy me all the time?This is exactly why Emotional Horsemanship is so important. I made this FOR YOU Horses behave in ways which are - naughty - aggressive - careless - dangerous FOR A REASON! By peeling back you and your horses history and layers of learned behaviour there is a horse in there that just wants to feel safe, be understood, feel comfortable and enjoy their life. Just like you. In Emotional Horsemanship we take a very direct route to solving these behaviour problems without punishment, but by rehabilitating the way the horse relates to humans from the ground, up.
I come from a really traditional background. This sounds really great, but I am struggling to get to grips with all this. Maybe it is just not for me?"It would be a mistake to think that you cannot change. My favorite type of horse person is the one who makes a change, after years of belief or even success with a different way of doing things. You CAN change, you CAN adapt, and you CAN begin again. For no other reason than you decided it to be so. This time, you got the support you need to make it happen If you are unsure where to begin, book in for a free 30 minute discovery call and I will break this huge change you are going through into small, easy, bite sized chunks. You got this.
