The most important thing is that we get to your goals together.
We do this through conversations, assignments and with the help of the horses. The course usually consists of 6 one-hour sessions.
Above all, I offer a listening ear and give you the opportunity to tell. During the conversation I will ask a lot of questions to make you think about yourself and your goals.
The assignments can be with the horses or without the horses, which varies per situation and need. The assignments with the horses will be assignments like: see if the horse wants to follow you, set the pace and send the horse away. The assignments without horses will be about breaking thought patterns or habits
Coaching with horses
Why coaching with horses?
Coaching with is new to a lot of people.
In nature, when a new horse comes in the herd, horses always seek contact with a new horse to see what kind of horse this newcomer is. Is the new horse strong , smart or both? They do this to determine the rank of this new horse in the existing herd. When danger threatens, the whole herd have to ensure that the herd is safe as soon as possible.
If we now put a person in a area (stable, field, paddock) with a horse, the horse will naturally look for contact and observe this new human herdmate for his or her energy, so he can determine whether he can feel safe with the new person or not.
How does it work?
We humans often carry blockades with us, so the horse cannot get a good idea of what you can do as a new herdmate. That is why he investigates. With his nose, for example, he checks the blockages that you carry with you in your body. For example, if someone “thinks” that he or she would like to have a leadership role, but “inside” he is frightend to take a leading position, the horse will respond to the feeling (fear). The horse shows an image of fear or restlessness. The coach receives experienced information and by naming it, it becomes clear where the restless feeling comes from. This allows the client to take concrete steps in the direction that he or she wants and which feels 100% good. Then you are able to really take steps in your personal development and awareness process.
A horse also does something else; he automatically takes over from the tension from person standing with him, it doesn’t matter if this is a horse or a person. He lets this tension slide away immediately, for example by yawning or rolling. Us humans can also (unconsciously) take over each others tension. However, we are often not aware that we have absorbed this tension and therefore we don’t know how to get rid of it. By putting a horse as a mirror, it becomes clear how this system of energy transfer works. People who have experienced a coaching session with a horse always indicates that they literally feel “lighter” than before. This is logical, because the tension has largely dissipated through the horse.
