Our philosophy is that people don’t change unless they are challenged, unless they are outside their comfort zone. The most lasting change occurs when people find their own answers to questions. At Horse Sense, there is actually very little talking. We know that the most effective and long-lasting change occurs through active participation with the horses who, as excellent mirrors, reflect back to people who they really are. With the horses, clients can practice new behaviors in a therapeutic environment and learn that in changing themselves, they do have the power to change the world around them.
