Equine Guided Learning
Equine Guided Learning
Somatic Equitation, Personal Growth Workshops, Equine Guided Coaching, Leadership and Team Building Training
Our unique and ancient history of connection and collaboration with horses added to the horse’s own instinctual, social herd wisdom make them insightful teachers.
What Horses Do:
Horses, by their very nature, offer a rare, intuitive ability to enlighten us. They are able to see behind our masks-no matter how elaborate we have designed them.
How Horses Do It:
As herd creatures, horses innately seek consistent, trustworthy leadership, comfort, and protection from harm. These qualities make them perceptive analysts of us, when we are in their presence.
Horses reflect our potentiality, awareness, and focus.
Horses challenge our emotional and physical congruency and intention.
Horses urge us to live in the moment and be grounded.
Equine Guided Learning Programs Offered at Cascadian Stables:
A holistic equitation practice designed to nurture mind, body and soul for horse and rider. All levels welcome, no prior horse experience necessary!
