Why Horses? Horses are 100% honest, 100% of the time. No matter who you are, the horse will be an authentic team-member who will let you know if things are working or not. Most often, they'll give you plenty of chances to get it right, and most importantly without judgement.
Horses teach us to be present, honest, clear and committed. Like people, horses come with a wide range of personalities, moods and quirks. They'll react differently to each person and each situation.
The horse's herd mentality offers powerful leadership lessons. A horse will respect a herd leader who demonstrates awareness, fairness, consistency and respect guiding towards a goal. Horses will challenge a leader who is vague, confusing or lacking commitment to the good of the group.
As a tool of survival, horses are highly sensitive to nonverbal stimulus, They're experts at reading the most subtle behaviors and body language of people - posture and expressions, intention, determination and emotional charge. Horse sense a personal level of trust, confidence, awareness and interpersonal skill providing us with valuable, visible and uncensored feedback immediately; with this information, we learn if, when and how we need to do something differently to meet their particular needs at the time.
