Our host Maria (from @Horseandpeopleproject) for creating this amazing experience with horses!
The horses in this experience are facilitating a learning opportunity for you to tap into your own self development and learn a thing or two about yourself while interacting with the horse.
Who knew that by interacting with a horse you can learn so much about yourself?!
We took part in 4 lessons with the amazing horse Rocky:
1) Asking him to backup 2) Sending him out to the rail and inviting him back 3) Asking him for his leg 4) Acting as a magnet (where he follows us wherever we go).
What skills we learned?
Setting an intention
Asking like we mean it
Focus our energy
Encourage, not nagging
Finding balance between sending him out and inviting back
Real time communication
Wait for his processing (lick and chew)
I've been scared of riding horses because of my past experiences. I used to blame the horse that they were not well behaved. What I've learned from this experience is that the horse is not the problem...
The real problem is that I didn't know how to communicate with the horse and I wasn't clear on my intentions...
Also, none of the places you ride horses are sharing this with you...
I also had a lot of takeaways to implement on the interactions I have with my kids...
The importance of setting an intention, providing clear instructions, encourage them, not nagging and allowing them time to process to name a few.
I'm grateful for this experience and for ever cherish the lessons I've learned!
