"A wonderful experience that has made me want to start riding horses as a hobby."
What an amazing weekend I've just had! Super coaching sessions despite the liquid sunshine on Saturday, and on Sunday I delivered a bespoke, exciting Equine Facilitated Leadership workshop to participants from Kensington Temple London City Church's Youth Mentoring Programme. We were exploring biblical principals for (non-verbal) communication and relationship building between horses & humans and looked at the lessons we can learn from our equine partners and how to apply/ incorporate our learning in everyday life. It was a fun afternoon, packed with new ideas & revelations about the importance of clear, congruent communication and the need to develop a high level of Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills in order to form positive, meaningful relationships with people - and horses/ animals.
"I became more aware of my own feelings around the horses. I was surprised how tense I felt inside, even though I didn't show it on the outside. By the end of the session I was so relaxed. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know 'Little Lady'."
Everyone came away with lots of food for thought, and I think the pictures speak for themselves...
Thank you to everyone at Moorwards Farm, Equestrian Coaching Facility who were wonderful hosts. I am looking forward to the 25th September when I'll be delivering the second workshop.
If you're interested in finding out more about the possibilities that Equine Facilitated Learning could offer to you as an individual, or to your (leadership) team at work etc., please get in touch.
Have a great day.
