Horse Wisdom Program - Hahndorf

The Horse Wisdom Program

The Horse Wisdom Program is a fun and interactive psychosocial skills building program that can be delivered individually or in groups tailored to specific needs and ages.

Horses are highly intuitive, sensitive and powerful animals. Their natural herd instincts mean they are always focused on connection, relationships and their environment. These attributes lend themselves perfectly to teach people about awareness, trust, respect, boundaries, vulnerability and attachment.

Horses naturally live in the ‘present moment’. They are constantly aware of their surroundings to ensure the safety of their herd. This can teach us the importance of mindfulness, as they invite us to live in the moment alongside them.

Each session is designed to follow these life skills
