Equine Guided Learning is individuals and teams participating in experiential learning activities with horses. There is no riding involved, only ground work. Each activity provides participants with an opportunity to learn by doing, and gain instant, clear feedback from the horses about what is effective, and what isn’t. Horses are herd animals, which means they are naturally used to team dynamics. They establish clear roles within the herd, follow direction from the established leader, and also must step up to lead themselves when another leader is missing. They don’t engage in politics, and operate 100% on instinct. Horses can feel our hearts beating. It is one of the many ways they are constantly assessing their environment for danger, opportunity, and risk that must be managed for their survival. The feedback they give through body language and actions is clear and not influenced by many of the factors that can clutter up human feedback. This allows for us to have more immediate and powerful breakthroughs about our own leadership and choices.
