Coaching With Horses

Coaching With Horses

Working with horses to understand ourselves better.  An creative approach to Coaching from SimplyChanging

On our coaching with horses programme we introduce you to creative ways of coaching.  One of the creative coaching methods we use is 'Coaching with Horses'.  So we have a day playing with our horses so that you can 'get the picture'.  

We do a ton of stuff with our horses and are happy to share what we know with you including:

  • How we keep them - we follow Jamie Jacksons Paddock Paradise methods!

  • How we train them - through Parelli Natural Horsemanship and Positive Reinforcement

  • How they help us coach people towards their dreams

  • Leadership and communication training

Here's a great video of one of our 'Coaching with Horses' days!  You can see that that the Horses, Monty, Guinness, Dixie and Oto are teaching us well!

Meet Marie Weinman and Jane Travis part of the Coaching with Horses Team

Jane and Marie are completely horse mad.  They both happen to be brilliant coaches too and Jane is a Master Practitioner of NLP!!  So all in all you are very safe in our hands.

We describe ourselves as Coaches who work creatively.  Horses enable us to see ourselves through a mirror and when you combine that with great coaching, the combination is tremendous!!

Here's a video of Jane talking about Coaching with Horses (with her horse Jack)

In this video Jane tells us about Jack and his personality.  She explains that working with Jack has enabled her to learn about herself.  Jane tells us about how horses are non-judgemental and give us instant feedback.  She goes on to say that horses are a 'mirror' they tell us about ourselves in a much quicker and straightforward way.  Enjoy this video!

 

Now let's meet Marie with her horse Afina (Fi)

Marie demonstrates really clearly how important relationship is.  Building relationship is so important in Coaching and this comes from trust and respect.  This lovely video clearly shows the trust, respect, understanding and therefore the relationship that exists between Marie and Fi!!  Take a look! 

 

Here's a little background to how this all started

I met my now great friend and associate Roz Watkins when I was delivering a coaching programme a number of years ago. Roz was a student on my programme at that time and was very interested in learning how she could coach people in leadership involving horses.

I eagerly agreed to help Roz map out a horse related coaching process. Needless to say I became completely hooked. We switched our roles and I became the student. She is a very skilled horsewoman with a vast knowledge and tremendous skill in natural horsemanship. Roz introduced me to Natural Equine Methods and because I became so deeply interested, I now own a beautiful thoroughbred ex-racer.

The process of re-training my horse, Monty, into Natural Equine methods has been very rewarding. I have been privileged enough to experience things from his point of view - his thought processes, drivers and fears etc. I have also been able to experience first-hand how working with horses opens up a world of self-reflection and understanding.

In my work with horses, what amazed me was how much I could recognise that the process of working with horses in this way, mirrors who we are as human beings.

It is directly related to who we are and the many roles we perform; partner, sibling, carer, parent, colleague etc - all roles, in fact, which involve understanding, perspective, rapport, negotiation, influencing and where good clear communication is required
