Setting Boundaries and Horses

Working with a horse can expose a person’s patterns. In an equine session, attention is drawn to interactions between the person and the horse and the horse’s reactions to the person’s decisions.

Lessons may be as simple as how much physical space the horse needs to feel comfortable. Without any words at all, horses make it clear when someone has crossed their boundaries. Trying to control or dominate will not work with a horse. Likewise, a detached or passive approach can make it difficult to lead a horse.
