Horse’s sensitivity to communicating without words can provide incredible teaching opportunities about the power of our own body language and leadership skills. Many of us have no idea just how powerful our body language is…for good or bad. Since horses cannot lie, and they do not hold grudges they are uniquely able to provide honest, clear, and immediate communication about the effectiveness of our actions. Horses also live in social groups and they value their relationships and connections with each other. These relational attributes can provide excellent insights into our own relational skills and patterns.
In equine assisted psychotherapy, the horse acts as a metaphor for relationships, which provides you the opportunity to look at what works, what doesn’t work, whose needs are being met, whose problem it is, and to take responsibility for recognizing how personal actions affect others.
