What we see in the mirror can help us improve our interactions with others.
We believe in mentoring others in the discovery of their uniqueness and independence, helping them to see future possibilities and to create the confidence to develop limitless achievement, individually or as a team.
Horses have the unique ability to serve as a mirror into our behavior. What we see in the mirror can help us improve our interaction with others.
It Makes Horse Sense
As members of a herd, horses have strong instincts to bond for survival, success, and well being and to use their individuality to position themselves in the herd for the better of the group. A herd can teach us what it’s really like to be part of an effective team.
Know the Impression You’re Giving
Ask a horse. Horses offer immediate feedback about our presence, emotional intelligence, and body language. Horses can sense nervousness, aggression, tension, insecurity, anger, and frustration. They can also detect calm, level-headed, and decisive behavior. Horses are masters at detecting incongruence between our thoughts and our actions, making them natural teachers of awareness and facilitators of change

Never rode a horse before? No problem. You won’t be riding at Dashing W. And, you don’t have to know a thing about horses to get the benefits of our workshops. Exercises take place on the ground, in a safe environment, side-by-side with the horses. Just be yourself, be honest, and the horses (and practitioners) will do the rest.
