Workshops/sessions typically focus on some of the following skills (and more!). 

Ideally, we let the horses decide what is needed most.

Listening: When spoken language is taken out of the equation, we have no choice but to learn to listen to what the horse is saying (via body language and behavior).  This powerful experience carries over into so many other areas of life.

Empathy:  When we learn to put our own agenda aside in order to understand how the horse is feeling in the moment… it becomes easier, and more natural, to embrace this strategy in other relationships.

Softness:  When we learn how to be soft in mind and body while still being clear and effective in our interactions with a horse, this awareness is easily transferred to other areas of life. 

Intention and Authenticity: When we realize the horse can read our intentions, we have no choice but to behave authentically.  From this experience we learn that honest relationships are so much more rewarding!

Presence: Horses live powerfully in the present moment.  When we interact with them we get to practice what this feels like, making us better able to carry that experience into other areas of our lives.

Trust:  When we can learn to trust a 1000lb animal that has never met us before, suddenly trusting other people becomes easier too.

Respect for Others:  Horses demand respect.  If they feel disrespected, they will choose not to interact with us.  And, because of their size they cannot be forced – at least not without constraints, which are not allowed in the work we do at Unbridled, LLC.

Respect for Self and Personal Safety: Horses place a high value on self-respect (via protecting personal space boundaries). In order to interact safely with a horse, we too must learn to identify and communicate our own personal space boundaries through energy and intention.  This lesson is especially powerful for those who sometimes find themselves feeling victimized emotionally or physically.

Being in Service to Others: The process of developing a meaningful relationship with a horse always involves first demonstrating a willingness to be in service to them (i.e. their emotional or physical needs) in the moment.  Once horses know we are not “in it” purely to achieve our own goals, they will willingly reveal how they can be in service to us as well.

Energy Awareness:  Horses are incredible sensitive to the energy we are emitting at any given moment.  Learning to interpret a horse's response to our energy is invaluable and provides unique opportunities to practice regulating the energy we are putting out into the world around us.

Fees:  When working with individual clients the fee for the first session (2-3 hrs) is $250 and includes a pre-session questionaire, digital photographs and written feedback via email after the session.  Subsequent 1 hr sessions are $100 each.  Fees vary for workshops and corporate team sessions. Both can include a catered lunch for an extra fee.  If you are interested in sponsoring a session as a gift or for someone who may not otherwise be able to participate, let's talk!
