What can we learn from horses?

Horses are dangerous when they become aggressive or fearful. Humans are the same way. The techniques used to set boundaries with horses, gain their cooperation, and calm them in challenging situations are also effective with people and other animals.

We came away energized and eager to put these principles into practice. I would definitely recommend Linda’s work both for personal mastery and team building.”
