What is trauma-informed equine-assisted coaching all about?

The beauty of trauma-informed equine-assisted coaching, counseling, or learning is the understanding that trauma impact all of our lives and provides tools for healing and moving forward.

Although most people believe that trauma needs to be a big life event, anything that causes you to experience fear of harm can result in a traumatic experience. For example, all these events can be categorized as trauma:

  • intrauterine and birth trauma
  • abuse and neglect
  • domestic violence
  • grief and loss
  • car accident
  • flooding and fires
  • natural disaster
  • divorce
  • family separation
  • combat
  • detainment/deportation
  • incarceration/imprisonment
  • homelessness
  • poverty
  • community violence and civil unrest
  • sudden changes in relationships
  • sudden and unexpected moves

Whatever your experience with trauma has been, equine-assisted coaching, counseling, and learning can help you discover a pathway to healing and a new way of living. 

The Relationship Connection Equine-Assisted Coaching Program

The Impact of Equine Assisted Coaching

Let me tell you a little story about my personal experience (since it wouldn't be right to share my client experiences for them) that occurred at my Natural Lifemanship training.

I ended up in a round pen with a horse that refused to move. She went on ignoring me. Not a look. Not a glance. Just totally ignoring. Even though I had horse experience, I realized my old techniques were not going to work because I didn't have a halter or lead rope to just go up to her make her connect with me.

She had to choose our relationship connection, and that changed everything.

Through using the Natural Lifemanship approach you begin to build the connection through applying pressure to her rear by clapping or giving energy to your voice. I know it sounds crazy, but wait until you experience it. So I was trying my best to no avail, only getting more and more discouraged and angry. My pride was hurting. My fear of my own anger erupting was mounting. I turned to my training instructor for help and he coached me with simple but profound questions (which is what I'll do for you).

"What do you want to do?"
I told wanted to just quit and run away. 
He said, "Is that good for you and for this horse?"
I said, "No, I need to work through this?"
He said, "Work through what?"

With tears flowing, I confessed my struggle with anger and how I've worked the last two decades years to not raise my voice, to not get loud and in my kids' face, but when they push me like this horse is doing by ignoring me, I lose my cool.

At that moment I saw with clarity four profound truths:

  1. I feel like I often don't have a voice unless I yell, and that's a by-product of my childhood wounds that I thought were all healed up.
  2. When I don't feel heard, I get angry.
  3. I don't know how to raise my energy level without being angry.
  4. When I feel like I might fail, I quit.

As I poured out my heart, right there in the middle of training, I could see how this equine-assisted coaching was about much more than working with a horse.

It was about working on me and my relationships.

So I took a deep breath, relaxed my body, and put into practice the Natural Lifemanship approach with a horse that didn't want to give me the time of day. It was worth it, as the connection began to build and she began to pay attention to me and follow me by choice, without any pressure to do so.

And from that experience, as well as all the ones that have taken place since that time, I've approached my human relationships from a brand new perspective. It has made such a difference in my marriage, motherhood, and work relationships.

I'd love for you to discover this for yourself, too.
