JOIN OUR HERD OF SKYHORSE EQUINE GUIDED EDUCATORS.
OUR APPROACH IS UNIQUE, TRANSFORMATIVE AND LIFE CHANGING!
ARE YOU READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
The world needs you and the unique perspective that only you can bring! Participants of the certification program come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience. Our practitioners include educators, coaches, equestrians, teachers, college students, artists, therapists, shamans, healers, riding instructors, and other individuals who are or who want to incorporate horses into their professional offers. We love how diverse our students are and their creative applications of Tai Chi, Chi Gong, art therapy, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, and other healing modalities. We are here to support your vision.
Our goal is to encourage you to expand on your existing skills as well as learn new skills. We are not focused on one particular methodology, but rather on the universal application of what horses can offer to healing and teaching models. You will be able to retain your current terminology and methods with an expanded vocabulary, understanding and knowledge of horses, humans and the learning process.
We focus on developing your ability to observe, recognize, and articulate the non-verbal/body language dynamics of the horse(s), yourself as the facilitator (translator), and your client. In addition, we encourage your unique style of facilitation versus a ‘cookie cutter’ methodology. Our graduates go on to reach their dreams!
We teach you how to hold an open space for healthy, transformative change for your clients. Best of all, we teach you how to 'FOLLOW THE HORSE'. The horse is YOUR guide too. We teach you how to listen and observe, rather than control, so you can let the horses do what they do best. The word, 'guide' means to take one into unknown or unfamiliar territory. When you are able to create an energetically neutral space for your clients, the possibilities are limitless. In this sacred zone, people can transcend old limiting beliefs and somatic traumas and re-connect to their sense of self confidence and purpose in life.
The people we work with have a lot of passion to make a difference in the world. Ariana and The SkyHorse Team provide grounded coach mentoring to help you navigate the business side of turning your dream into reality. We know this work is needed more now than ever. EGE is not a fad, it's not an anomaly, it is grounded and has been growing leaps and bounds for over 30 years. The most important thing is you have to believe in yourself and never forget your dream can come true.
Adding horses into the coaching and therapy process adds layers of complication that sessions in an office don't have. You don't know what is going to happen. You can't anticipate what the energetic presence of the horses might bring out in participants. Horses draw out the authentic, deeper aspects of the participants which you cannot predict. The horses are energetically mirroring, not only a specific participant, but the group as a whole and you as a facilitator. Not to mention, you can't control the weather or the surrounding barn life. We teach you how to have a flexible plan, to embody your teaching points and to follow the horse versus sticking to an agenda that is out of alignment with what is really happening.
We know from experience that to incorporate horses into your professional offer requires additional education. Bringing horses into educational and learning models, creates a whole new set of complexities and unknowns. Our certification program will give you the confidence, knowledge and experience required to incorporate horses into your professional offer. We teach you a new way of thinking, how to trust yourself and your horses, and how to navigate in a wide variety of situations.
