What you'll do
EquusLibere Discovery Experiences (dubbed Horse 'Whisperer' Experiences by clients) are joyful, insightful opportunities to discover equine-facilitated learning and deepen how participants relate to themselves, others, and horses. Please note that no horse experience is needed and no riding is involved. We will meet at our retreat equestrian facility in Longmont, CO - Wildsong Ranch and we will start our session with safety education with the horses. We will partner with 1-6 horses depending on group size. We will continue our session in the heated indoor arena (we're winter-friendly!) or outdoor arena and move through fun, insightful equine-facilitated learning exercises on the ground that deepen how you relate to yourself, others, and horses. After the exercises, we will close the session and say goodbye to our equine partners. Experience connecting with horses in a new way while practicing leadership development and learning natural horsemanship skills. We will allow the horses to guide our explorations into presence, connection, intuition, energetic impact, boundaries, and authentic leadership. As you learn to 'horse whisper,' you will also receive translated, real-time feedback from the horses that offer insight into your unique leadership style and ways of showing up in the world. Please message me for discounts available for groups of 2 or more participants!
