What you'll do
During this experience you will discover this hidden green area and engage in a hands-on dynamics with the horses. This experience is characterized by an introduction of ethology concepts related to how horses perceive the world and interact with us: simply put you will learn to communicate and connect with the horses using their natural language. After, we will then walk to a training area to center ourselves while observing the horses and their behavior. After, you will have one-on-one time with one of the horses. During this time, you will start by grooming the horses with trust and respect, and if you feel confident, you will practice horse whispering with the guidance of a professional coach and equine specialist. This activity allows you to develop leadership tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. Through some unique coaching dynamics with horses (no riding experience is required) you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise. At the end of the day you will experience a sense of awe, oneness with the horses and learn how our “being predators” impacts our interaction with nature and other people.

My name is Michele, and from an early age, dogs and horses have been part of my life. Due to an early career as a criminologist, I worked on some severe criminal cases. These experiences brought me to witness the harshness of some human realities and impacted me so much that I then needed time to recover from it. That’s when I discovered the empowering energy of nature and horses. Following this life-changing lesson, I decided to learn more about coaching and animals. I completed the Diploma on Coaching with Horses and the Post-graduate Diploma on personal and executive coaching from the University of Barcelona. Since 2017, I am a certified coach with over 550 registered hours, trainer and founder of Nature Motivation, a coaching company that supports individuals to improve their lives and careers.
During the activity, I will take some pictures for you as a memory of your time together with the horses.
