Training Horses with Herd dynamics

 

In training horses it is important to understand how horses think in order to relate to them.

 

This fabulous picture of 3 of my horses reminds me of how we need to relate to the horses and people in our lives.

 

Horse Sense for People - Hanging out in the Herd

 

The picture immediately brings to mind how easily horses relate to each other.  Hanging out under the shade of some trees you can feel their sense of togetherness –

 

ALLOWING each other JUST TO BE.

 

All the while completely and unconditionally accepting themselves.

 

Each of my horses know that they belong in this group.  They as a group naturally embrace and nurture sustainable loving relationships with each other.  I have watched them in their little herd for years.  Their care and regard of each other is a delight to witness and has given me much food for thought in how to enrich my own life.

 

This care and regard shines through into the training of my horses. The results are not in what we can do so much, but in the simple joy of the interaction.

 

I love how they feel so at peace with each other, how they give each other space or take time for themselves when they need to.  No one else in the group feels offended, upset, angry when one of them wanders off for some quiet time alone.  They are just there to welcome them back from their quiet break.  Imagine how you could apply this idea to your horse training!

 

The learning for me from this equine perspective has given me the courage to not take it personally when my horse says ‘no’ or is not responding or even the slightest bit interested in what I am trying to do with them.  Beating myself up only creates negativity and a huge energy drain.  There is no where to go from that!

 

Relate to horses from an equine perspective and experience the joy of becoming one of the herd.

We are in the news! 5 Things Leaders Can Learn From A Horse

Posted by on Sep 7, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off on We are in the news! 5 Things Leaders Can Learn From A Horse

5 Things Leaders Can Learn From Horses I have been working with leaders for over thirty years and I have witnessed the A to Z in the leadership development field – from Appreciative Inquiry to Theory Z. Not much is left to surprise me. I have also become a little cynical of new fads. So it was with a large degree of scepticism that we took our team to experience Lead without Reins which is an equine assisted leadership development program. After an initial briefing by Louise, an equine behaviourist and natural horsemanship...

Horse Sense For People is being talked about

In early April 2016 we held a Equine Assisted Leadership training…   Here is the key points participants learnt: “Horses are used to develop authentic leadership as they shy away from mixed messages and help leaders develop clear intention, body language, energy and presence – in a cooperative and consensual way. When they feel safe, these large animals are happy to allow humans to lead them safety being key to any collaborative endeavour”.  Click here to read...

Change vs Transformation

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Change vs Transformation

Here is a recent linked-in article that I wrote: Experiential reconditioning is a different and very powerful way professional and personal learning and growing can be achieved. Experiential reconditioning isn’t about change.  Change is simply an attempt to alter behaviour.  It is about transformation.  Fundamentally altering our way of being in the world. Change is easier, because it usually happens incrementally (if it is to last) and we always have the option to change back.  Transformation on the other hand is scary.   With...
