Equine Assisted Training

This resiliency training is unique in that horses create stress, frustration and self preservation instincts in people, as well as unpredictability that is very much a part of police and first responders work.

Peer support and team building is experienced by those who attend classes. Understanding personal biases, better listing skills as well as observation of nonverbal communication is all part of the class. Being mindful of where the horses and the people are in the arena is how they get the task done with the horses. This is a physical and mental practice of the classroom lecture.  

How one reacts or responds to a horse is how they react or respond to others in the community, at home, or work. Come see your reflection in a horse and practice mindful training.
