“How to learn safely with your horse”
A 4 part workshop series on overcoming fear through knowledge with professional horsewoman Margaret Beeman.
Saturdays 10-12 January 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
SUDDENNESS – TRAUMA – TRAGIC EXPERIENCE
When you don’t see something coming you experience a suddenness, a taking by surprise.
This may involve trauma of any or all of your sensory facets.
When these things happens you experience a tragic experience.
This limits your ability to think things through and causes you to react instead of respond to certain stimuli.
You are left with a heightened sensitivity and tend to function instinctively instead of rationally.
Welcome to the mind of the horse.
Unless a horse can understand what is expected of him he will instinctively try to get away or get rid of that which confuses him. Sound familiar?
By learning the horse’s culture you experience an animal 10 times larger than you trying as hard as he can to understand so that he doesn’t have to flee the herd or fight to stay. The horse is a social creature. It is in his nature to get along. The horse is a mirror of what it sees which offers you an opportunity to understand yourself better.
Once you experience this you will know there is a way out.
I mirror what I see in the horse and help you to recognize the opportunity to wait and choose what happens next.
You do have a choice.
And the horse is honest enough in his simplicity he can help you learn that in a way that is pure and clear.
TRANSITIONS – CHANGE
Transitions, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual need to made from a place of balance.
When a transition is made from a place of imbalance or from a balanced place but suddenly, or from a balanced place with no life, there is danger of creating a tragic experience.
Emotion affects timing, movement, and balance.
Emotion is a force a horse does not understand.
When a horse doesn’t understand something he will either try to get away from it or get rid of it.
This is a fact.
I want my horse to know he can and will be able to keep all 4 of his feet on the ground and relax when I take the lead.
In order to do this I have to make a conscious decision.
Then I need to know what the horse needs to do in order to do what I am asking him to do, that way he will look to me when most things happen that take him by surprise.
The rest of those things that will happen are called collisions and we want to avoid collisions in our journey through life.
Learning about the horse’s culture will help us do that.
My objective in developing these workshops is to provide an opportunity to explore and learn for people who experience fear when working around their horses, whether it be caused by a traumatic experience or lack of knowledge.
I provide a safe fun way to explore and find a more grounded approach to life and a greater understanding of life around you.
Invest time in your well being.
Experience a change in yourself for the better and a desire to move ahead and create a life you and your horse can live with.
You do have a choice and the horse is honest enough in his simplicity he can help you with that.
Because of the nature of this series of workshops I am limiting participation to 6.
There will be unlimited auditor space.
