Horses are team players in which leadership plays a very important part. Leadership in horse terms cannot be won or demanded but is a natural aspect of each herd member and each horse within the herd will develop its leadership capacity based on its talent and how it contributes to the survival of the herd. As horses don’t have a strong hierarchal order their communication is very much based on helping each other to better the herd.
Activities with horses create a unique situation in which teams develop various skills based on their interaction with the horses and each other as a team. The trainings help to better communications, confidence, assertiveness, self esteem, creativity, relationships and leadership.
Herd communication relies largely on non verbal communication in which body language plays an important role. The Equine Assisted trainings do not teach horse riding or horsemanship but are based on communication and collaboration with the horses to create trust, collaboration, understanding and non verbal communication.
