The Power of the Herd
Horses have a complex relational capacity and in their natural environment, in the wild, live in herds together. These herds are similar to families and are essential for their survival. They create safety and provide for their needs. Like us, horses have their own unique personalities, connections and relational dynamics with each other. They work together to create safety and stability in the herd and are always seeking to restore a sense of balance among themselves.
We capitalize on this powerful dynamic by allowing our horses to work together as a herd during sessions. Instead of having one horse present to facilitate healing, there are multiple, each aware of what is happening for the client and able to engage in the process as they choose. The client has the unique opportunity to benefit from the presence of a balanced constellation of horses to assist in their healing.
