EQUINE ASSISTED THERAPY AND RETREATS
At The Barn we welcome you to a peaceful stable environment where we spend some gentle time caring and being with our friends the horses. You will learn many things about horse handling and many things about yourself.
Horses can function as emotional mirror for humans and they respond in perfection to the feeling state we are in. They are herd and prey animals, which means that they have strong emotional senses (about 10 000 times more sensitive then ours) and use these sense as a survival tool; they feed off of and respond to other horses in the herd. If one horse in a herd is scared, the others will pick uo on the fear and become frightened too. They respond similarly to humans. Horses never lie or hide their emotions, and their honesty can be of great value to us. It can be used to help humans heal, grow, develop our inner strength and restore trust in places where it has been lost.
