Camphill Communities of Ireland

“Horses are beautiful and intuitive animals to be around; as partners in this process horses provide a non-judgmental approach to learning simply.

Horses don’t judge. They cannot over think a situation, identify motives or manipulate. Their intuitive nature and innate sensitivity can provide a person with a window into their behaviors which creates opportunity for self reflection and change.”
