Putting Relationship First – Lessons from Equine-Assisted Therapy

Horses have played a integral role in human life and society for years, providing transportation, carrying us through war, helping us work the land in farming, providing sport and entertainment. But perhaps today, their role is shifting, as horses today provide us with companionship and even healing…

Equine therapy has risen in popularity, and for good reason – it is not only enjoyable to spend time with horses, but they teach us a lot.

This past weekend, I hosted my fourth event with Natural Lifemanship, a group that teaches a model for Equine Psychotherapy. What I love about this group in particular is they don’t just teach a method, they teach the neurobiology behind why equine therapy can be so effective.

And what they teach isn’t just for therapy. We can use these principles every day with our own horses to build relationships with them based on trust, connection, and partnership.

Listen to this interview to meet the trainers, Sarah and Kathleen, and learn how putting relationship first can change how you relate to your own horse.
