Our HorseSense programs represent a unique methodology
for connecting people and developing greater awareness for all
individuals--leaders, managers, professionals, parents, teams and more.
Developed in Israel 14 years ago, (now in the US and Europe) HorseSense is
based on the growing field of Equine Assisted Professional Development (EAPD).
As we observe horses together, and experience our own interactions, we learn
from them. Unable to rely on persuasion, power positions, or our
reputations, we reconnect with our own “horse sense,” becoming more aware of
ourselves and others, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This
awareness of “presence” – ours and others’ – makes for stronger
relationships, and better collaboration and communication.
Through non-mounted, hands-on exercises with horses, participants experience
whole new levels of awareness, the ways in which we comport ourselves and
the messages we put out, intentional or otherwise. Each development program
can be designed around one or more fundamental principles in how we lead,
follow, communicate, and connect. Debriefing sessions help participants
recognize and internalize the lessons learned by exploring direct parallels
between what happened ‘in the field’ and what happens in "real-life,"
whether on an individual basis, as a team, or as an organization.
