Equine Assisted Mindfulness This Saturday

Spend the day among green pastures and beautiful equines to learn more about mindfulness and the ability to tune in to the present moment and quiet the mind.

ILC Teambuilding With Horses

Integrative Life Center is an organization that is especially supportive of experiential therapies including equine assisted psychotherapy, which has been recognized as a leading alternative to traditional talk therapy. A precursor to building their equine program, ILC chose to spend some time out on the farm with the horses themselves. The group of eight engaged in activities that gave them insight into their own personalities, leadership qualities and the ability to exercise positive communication skills and teamwork. They’re a group who does so well at helping others it was a chance to...

Chris Irwin’s Tough Love

Chris Irwin’s Tough Love

We decided to drive to East Tennessee for the day this past October, a 3 /12 hour drive from Leiper’s Fork, to catch the last of a three-day horsemanship clinic with Chris Irwin. Tony was skeptical on who I was taking him to see. Chris Irwin is an internationally known horse trainer, author and speaker that I hadn’t seen since I attended his Equine Assisted Personal Development workshop in Lexington, KY in 2007. I was thrilled to catch him, since he’s rarely in the U.S. anymore, and for getting a moment for us to say hello and reconnect. But, it was a short conversation before Chris was pulled into the last session of the day. From what he described, and from what I was hearing from those around us earlier, it was about a horse with a trailer loading issue that had everyone at the end of their rope. He was an off-the-track Thoroughbred, and like so many of them, damaged by the hands of others he was more than anyone could handle. I wasn’t even sure how serious it was with this horse (I can’t believe, a trailer loading issue alone could or should determine the fate of a horse), but it sounded like life for this animal was looking very grim.

“Success Within” A Great Success!

Lisa Wysocky’s “Success Within” was a great success!  It was a beautiful October day in Leiper’s Fork, TN where a group of 19 gathered for discussion on goal setting, leadership, creativity, relationships; and then it was hands-on with the horses.  Poco and Bunny, our two mares, showed us what we can learn from herd behavior and what we can discover about ourselves.  These two are very much the opposite of each other. Poco is a highly secure and intelligent horse who is the Alpha. Bunny, while a smart and willing horse, shows a lot of insecurity and needs a...
