WindhorseRelationShip is a unique equestrian experience mirroring balance and harmony in nature. It’s not goal oriented horse training, it’s about building right relationships. It’s a process that creates the experience of kinship: “Where Heart Meets Horse.”
The focus in upon creating a safe environment for communication, understanding the mustang’s language and perspective, changing fear into mutual trust and confidence as you become the leader in a willing partnership. Mary Lee teaches useful training skills acquired over fifty years of professional education and experience. However, “It’s not what you do; it’s how you do it.” That makes the difference.
WindhorseRelationShip is about working with the nature of the horse with balance, timing, and feel. The power of self-awareness and non-verbal communication with the horse allows the human to create willing relationships based on trust, which transforms fear into respect, and respect into response. When the human heart meets the wild horse in love and understanding the teachings circle back to transform and empower the man spirit.
Horsemanship should be horse/human kinship based upon a partnership of mutual respect and understanding for a common purpose. The kind of relationship will determine the enjoyment and level of accomplishment for the horse/human team. The basic skills and disciplines required cannot be mastered without harmony and balance whether trail riding, jumping, executing patterns or working cattle. Equitation is form with function and the most important function is for the human to learn how to get along with the horse and accept him as his/her teacher.
M.E.E.T the mustangs
mustang educational, experiential training
M.E.E.T. is the development of a relationship based on trust, willingness, and respect. Most participants have little or no prior experience with horses. In fact, many participants arrive with fear of horses and learn to overcome their fear. Fear, stress, anxiety, trauma, depression, and anger are replaced with peace, strength and emotional balance. This transformation occurs within the horse as well as the human. In our M.E.E.T. workshops, seminars and trainings, participants, come to understand the horse's perspective toward humans. They learn to observe the horse"s nonverbal language. A critical component of this training is to create a safe space for the horse and the participant. During this process the horse is never restrained and always has the freedom to flee if threatened or frightened. Our technique “working the edge” teaches the participant to bridge the distance between fear and respect. The participant begins to understand the role as predator in a predator vs. prey society and learns that aggression is a result of one"s fears.
Windhorse Relations customizes trainings based on the needs of each group and the unique needs of the participants. Here are some examples and comments from past trainings and programs.
