Horses are authentic teachers who can help people understand themselves more deeply. By being present with these majestic creatures, there is an opportunity to learn the delicate dance of building relationships. Fears and uncertainty may rise to the surface providing fertile ground for healing. Learning to pay attention and engaging in respectful interaction fosters connection and love.
A few years ago, I was invited to Equinection, a farm near Burnsville, North Carolina, where equine facilitated learning and therapy programs are offered. The director and founder, Karen Head, is a gentle, compassionate and extraordinary teacher. My time with her and the horses was transformative and profound.
