The Happy Medium Approach with Horses 

Building Flexible and Workable Tools for the Individual and Their Interconnected Relationships

Schedule a Collaborative Consultation

What skills can we work on during coaching with horses?

The most important questions are: 

  • What is meaningful to the individual? 
  • Where are we now? 
  • Where do we want to go?

We can work collaboratively together to constructing new skills across so many areas, depending on the values of the individual.

  • Communication
  • Self Determination 
  • Connection 
  • Emotional Capacities
  • Noticing Skills
  • Flexibility 
  • Resourcing Support 
  • Boundaries
  • Selfing
  • Defining Values 
  • Sensitivity to shifting environments

 We have no set program or standard to meet, except finding workability and taking steps towards a meaningful life.  

What do horses add to the Coaching Context? 

Horses enhance our noticing skills (and so many more!)  

  • What does that flick of the ear or stomp of the hoof mean? 
  • In what ways can I honor that horse's communication 
  • How do I resource the support the horse needs based on what I am seeing?

Through connection, the horses at Zuma's support individual's to find connection, contextual sensitivity, broad and flexible repertoires of workable behaviors, and flexible ways to resource support for self and interconnected social relationships

  • How did that behavior I used work for the horse? 
  • How did the behavior work for me?
  • How did the behavior I used work for me and the horse to get where we want to go as a socially interconnected relationship? 
  • If it did work, awesome! If it didn't work so well for one or all of us, what supports do I need to resource for myself, the horse, or both of us?

Ultimately, who am I as an individual! Who am I as an individual within interconnected groups?  What behaviors do I have that work for me and for me as part of a valued group?  If I find myself in a space that is not workable, how do I resource the supports I need to get back to a place of workability and moving towards what is important!

Access to effective resources is a huge value for our team!  Our resources should be accessible to everyone, and we do offer a sliding scale.  If you feel comfortable with our resources at a lower rate, let's talk about it, and try to come up with a number that works for everyone.
