Humanship thru Horse-Man-Ship is the theme here. While I am at the Parelli Center in Ocala, Florida, I plan to share my experience as I go through the course; Liberty and Horse Behavior.
For those of you who don’t know me, my interest in Natural Horsemanship is two-fold. The obvious of course, is the advancement of my own personal relationship/partnership with my horse, Cruiser. The other reason is to broaden my understanding of horse behavior and psychology and how they relate/communicate with each other as well as the human species.
HORSES AS HEALERS
I spent many years working and studying as an actor, which in it’s essence is the study of human behavior. Although, I had a horse of my own as a young teenager it has been the past 7 years that I have been involved with the actual practice of Horse-Man-Ship (a Parelli – ism), and the study of horse behavior.
Most recently my interest in humans and horses has led me to the practice of Equine Assited Learning and Personal Development (EAL or EAPD).
The horse is a magnificently sentient being (intuitive, feeling, perceptive energy). They are capable of mirroring the human’s authentic emotions whether the human is aware of their true feeling or not. Because of this, the horse can be a major contributor in leading a person or group through blocks or sticking points in their personal and professional lives.
Equine Assisted Therapies are gaining popularity for their effectiveness in the world of psychotherapy as well. Particulary for troubled youth, battered women, military personel struggling with post-traumatic-stress syndrome and even prison inmates.
This phase of my education into the deeper understanding of horse behavior is one more step toward my certification to practice EAPD in addition to acquiring my certification as a Life Coach. The purpose of which is to bring the healing powers of horses to anyone who is interested in cultivating their highest potential. (No horse experience required!)
