The 7 Inner Skills to Build a Meaningful Connection With Your Horse

Everyone knows that you have to be calm, patient, and present to work with a horse.  BUT HOW?
Welcome to the first every coaching program that tells you exactly HOW to build those inner skills that are so necessary in working with horses.

  • discover how to use your emotions to optimize performance - both your own and your horse's

Skill #3 Working with Weaknesses

Weaknesses are your personal characteristics that get in the way of your wellbeing when it comes to your relationship with your horse. Some weaknesses can be resolved, while others cannot. Either way, the way you work with your weaknesses impacts your wellbeing more than the weakness itself.

  • discover how to work with your weaknesses rather than against them

  • decrease criticism of yourself and your horse

  • become less rigid, perfectionistic, and judgmental 

  • learn how to handle it when you or your horse makes a mistake

  • eliminate fear of not being good enough

  • become a more compassionate friend to your horse

  • learn how to work with your horse in a way that is exciting, motivating, and enjoyable for both you and your horse

  • feel authentic, genuine, and uniquely yourself as you interact with your horse rather than copying others

  • stop putting out fires with your horse, fixing one problem then the next

Skill #5: Overcoming Challenges

Challenges with your horse can be here one day and gone the next, or the they can last for a long time. Either way, facing challenges, holdups, barriers, and obstacles with your horse is bound to happen. Your resilience determines how you overcome those challenges to enhance your wellbeing despite the setbacks.

  • increase your resilience, you ability to handle challenges and bounce back

Knowing how to set meaningful, appropriate, and effective goals with your horse is just as important as taking the steps to get there.

  • learn how to set clear goals that are attainable, clear, effective, and motivating

Skill #7: Going Deeper

If you want a deep connection with your horse, you have to go deep. Going deeper involves connecting to the deeper parts of yourself first so that you can meet your horse from that level.

  • discover where true deep satisfaction comes from and rise above feeling hurt, rejected, unloved, defensive, aggressive, or disrespected by your horse

  • stop comparing yourself and your horse to others to either beat yourself up or to feel better about yourself

  • discover exactly what to do to deal with negative thoughts

  • free your horse from the pressure of needing him/her to fill your needs

  • become a student of the horse to deepen your relationship with God

  • explore and be guided by your True Self
