“TOOLKIT FOR EQUINE CONNECTION” WORKSHOP
Fill your toolbox with new skills and deepen your partnership with your horse! Come join us for an amazing day with your horse or work with one of mine!
“What am I seeing or not seeing?”
In this workshop we’ll explore and study horses innate characteristics in terms of mental, emotional and physical wellness through a series of trials and games. We’ll set up events, allow the horse to respond and we’ll learn how to shape the behavior we want – step by step through clicker training and other techniques. We’ll learn to ask better questions! Through this discovery we’ll evaluate the level of communication, contentment, tension or apprehension, and determine the horses level of confidence and trust. For the horse who constantly moves through to the horse who won’t move when asked, we’ll work with a common language to help you both have more fun together!
The best thing for partnership with your horse is to teach them to relax and release tension!
We’ll also cover bodywork, evaluation tips and techniques for discovering physical boundaries, braces, and discomfort in order to increase the horses ability to interact and offer a ‘try’.
We’ll end by learning a hands on bodywork maintenance technique that includes lymphatic drainage for runny eyes. This powerful energywork is sure to enhance communication and connection!
We’ll address issues such as:
- “What can I do with my horse when it’s too icy or cold to ride?”
- “My horses tail moves just a bit and the skin twitches yet I don’t see any flies around. “
- “My horse keeps walking, can’t stand still. Stops but then walks on or shoulders into me, steps on my foot…”
- “My horse won’t allow me to touch her ears, poll, mouth, girth area…”
- “My horse seems frozen – unresponsive yet she knows what I’m asking and knows how to _____.”
- “All of a sudden – with no warning…”
Much of the work I do with horses begins with connection and balance to recognize and release tension. Mental, emotional, physical tension, boundaries, dullness, hyperactivity and lack of trust can cause all the above and more which results in unease. Even if we think our horse is relaxed and perfect, there are things we can do to check in to their wellbeing and gain a deeper connection.
