why horses?

highly intuitive, social animals

Horses are highly intuitive, social animals who use their power and savvy to successfully fight off predators, especially when they work together. They are also sensitive to their environment and the emotions of those around them. This allows them to serve as potent catalysts for understanding the instinctual dynamics of human behavior and offer powerful insights into our own emotions and behavioral patterns. We can learn a lot from these exemplary models of social and emotional intelligence.

An innovative and practical nature-based approach to leadership—and life. It’s not just for corporate executives. Parents, teachers, community organizers, film directors, and especially politicians would all benefit from learning these skills.”
