About Equine Guided Learning

An embodied experiential approach, participants engage in encounters with the horses. They are given the space to explore and process connected thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Horses experience all forms of emotion. The same as humans. The difference is that horses do not try to avoid their emotions and do not separate what they feel from how they act. They act under survival instinct as they are prey animals. When a human interacts with a horse, the horse often mirrors what the human is feeling, getting right to the 'inner truth'.

We are proud to offer this remarkable and magical approach to Equilibrium clients, which in our experience is a doorway to profound transformation for individuals and organisations.

 
Horses respond without judgement, in the present moment, to the integrity of the whole person and their inner story. Change the story and behaviours and the horse changes too...
— Harriet Hanmer, organisational psychologist

Benefits of EGL

Horses see the individuals, not the job titles. They respond in the present moment to the integrity of the whole person and their inner stories, rather than to orders, intellectual ideas or incongruence. The feedback horses give is instant, clear and non-judgemental.

Very often, the experience of Equine Guided Learning is joyful and continues to be drawn on as a metaphor and language for individuals and groups for a long time to come.     

With the right facilitation, the horse’s ability to engage with our true Self can be catalytic for long lasting change. In this safe and unique learning environment, participants are able to experience the full spectrum of human emotions and explore new ways of responding to their Self and to life, relating them directly back to everyday siutations.
