Communicating with others

We know that most of our communication is nonverbal. Horses help us to replace ambiguous, unintended, or ineffective communication with that which clarifies our intentions while also listening well with others. In this session we explore our own communication effectiveness, empathy with others, boundaries, and the relational skills of trust, respect, and acceptance.


Our activities with the horses in this session include using nonverbal communication, energy and boundaries, grooming and empathy, and making requests. All activities are done on the ground and followed by discussion and reflection.


  • A greater awareness of your communication effectiveness
  • Understanding the basics of horse communication and herd dynamics
  • A greater awareness of your energy and boundaries with others
  • Examining your skill with empathy, listening, trust, and acceptance of others
