I have just completed 5 days of training in Equine Assisted Growth and Learning. I am exhausted. I was continually challenged on several levels. I stayed uncomfortable most of the 5 days. I know that is the state in which the most learning occurs, but I am now so tired. There is a part 2 training for which I am now signed up and will obtain a certification from EAGALA to practice Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning as a member of a 2 or 3 part team. I will be the Equine Specialist and work with a mental health professional.
The power of this work is overwhelming to me personally. I look forward to sharing it with others. I will be using it as a part of a science curriculum this fall for at-risk students, Lord willing. I’m not sure where it will go from there.
I’m really excited about working with my horses and preparing them for this work as well.
I am in a state of disequilibrium and it makes it hard to formulate my thoughts. I am growing and changing and can sense it happening, but it will take some time of rest and focus on other things before I will be able to articulate all that is going on inside of me. I have a blog where I write exclusively about horses and my work with them: Learning with Horses.
