The Dancing Horse

Physically, being with horses has been found to lower heart rate and results in our feeling good. With the guidance of a good facilitator, horses are wonderfully effective in bringing powerful and clear self-realisations. Horses depend on their inherent heightened awareness and herd co-operation, and therefore our interaction with them can bring us a fresh and profound understanding of ourselves, the way we work, and the way we function with other people.

The rewards for opening oneself to this experience are personal insights that are difficult to achieve in other circumstances.

Horses reflect our behaviour objectively. They are capable of ‘shining a light’ on our behavioural strengths or difficulties. They can raise our awareness and help us transform any self-restricting patterns. Working with them we are able to improve our self-esteem, self-confidence, problem-solving, communication and leadership skills. The greater clarity about the qualities we need to develop to be effective can be ‘felt’, experienced and put into practice immediately.

The Dancing Horse workshops and sessions are run by Kirsten Neke (Ph.D. Ecology); Genuine Contact Programme Whole Person Process Facilitation coach; Equine Assisted Personal Development coaching qualification with international expert Chris Irwin and facilitation work with the Global Leaders Academy.
