The DH Horses

We work with a variety of horses, each offering a unique personality that assist participants in a wide range of areas.      Learning about the herd dynamic and understanding the roles that horses play within that dynamic teaches us the similarity to human life.  Horses are social creatures who are very sensitive to human emotion and energies.  By learning how to effectively communicate with a horse we in turn learn how to effectively communicate with people.    By learning how to manage our energies and emotions we are better able to navigate the complex worlds around us.  Horses live in the moment and forgive quickly.  With them we are allowed to make mistake, in fact the more we make the more we learn.  Earning the trust of a large animal we learn how we interact in the world around us.  Being willing to see parts we like and those we don't, puts us on a life changing path.  If we can work and communicate with a 1000 lbs animal and earn the trust in the arena...imagine the possibility OUTSIDE the arena 

We learn: 

  • Communication skills                                      

  • Conflict resolution

  • Adaptability & accountability

  • Teamwork

  • Awareness of self

  • Self care and self love 

  • Responsibility 

  • Humility

Please note that not all horses at our home ranch are used in program.  We keep lesson and session groups small to offer clients and students focused one on one care and assistance.  Horses are chosen based on personality and their ability to support our learning process.
