I have been awarded my British Horse Society/BHS Ireland accreditations (Stages 1 & 2, including the Ride Safe Award) and I am working towards my instructor/coaching qualification.
Why do we love horses?
Peoples’ interest in horses stems from the fact they were an integral part of all human societies for millennia. We owe a lot to horses, but sadly their relevance is being lost in modern culture - which is a shame, as they offer a wonderful way for people to connect with the greater physical world around them.
What do humans get from horses?
Horses are extremely perceptive and sensitive to changes in human behaviour. We must learn to regulate our emotions around them (an important and transferable life skill!)
What will I get out of this trip?
I hope to inspire your appreciation for horses (& teach safe riding & handling procedures.)
