At The Gift of The Horse we care deeply about the health and well-being of humans and horses. With that in mind we created this 40 page guidebook which promises to offer gentle support and guidance to you as you walk your own beautiful path with your beloved horse.
It is not intended to be an in-depth study, but more of a dip into what it is like when you start to adopt the principals and philosophies of The Gift of The Horse. If this resonates with you, our Foundation Course will offer you a deeper study and a very detailed grassroots theory of why we do what we do - and why we don't do, what we don't do!
In this guidebook we look at 8 simple ways of coming to a greater sense of awareness and presence when we are with our horses. We take an honest look at what distracts us from this presence and awareness.
The Steps are outlined as follows:
Step 1: Embarking on a Wellness Journey with your Horse.
We look at how shifting our internal state from resistance to acceptance can make all the difference to our experiences.
Step 2: Slow Down.
Are we rushing to prepare the horse, to groom him, to feed him? Or are we using this an opportunity to practice attentiveness, tenderness and mindful attention?
Step 3: Know that Life Happens for You.
Shifting from blame and victimisation to knowing that everything is meant for our highest growth.
Step 4: Practice relaxation.
Observing how bringing awareness to the breath helps us to come to greater relaxation.
Step 5: Be Present.
Mindful attention drops us right into the present moment. We look at examples of how we can do this with our horses.
Step 6: Become Consciously Aware.
How to begin to observe our thoughts instead of being lead being by them.
Step 7: Be Mindful.
We ask the question: "Do I do what I do because it is good for the horse, or because it is good for me?"
Step 8: Recognising the Oneness of All Life.
Are our horses really that different to us?
