Family Workshop with Horses

Transform your family to succeed and thrive

A unique family experience

Do you recognize one or more of the following things within your family?

  • Your mutual bond could use a boost
  • You would like to improve mutual communication within the family
  • Relationships are tense or there are underlying tensions and you don’t really know where they come from and how to deal with them
  • Setting boundaries is a challenge within your family
  • You have difficulty with the behavior of one or more children
  • You have difficulty dealing with your own emotions and those of your child
  • You keep looking at the same thing and cannot break certain patterns

Natural leadership with horses

In this workshop you will work together as a family to communicate better with each other, to be more open, honest and clearer, and at the same time remain true to yourself. This creates fewer misunderstandings, tensions and disagreements. Less energy is lost and there is more peace, relaxation and pleasure.
We call this natural leadership. You get things done naturally and easily from your strength rather than having to be authoritarian, angry, or punitive. You often show this behavior because you are insufficiently able to deal with the challenges of the moment.

By doing various exercises with horses from the ground up, you will become clear what the underlying patterns are in your family and how each family member contributes to them. It provides insight into the mutual roles and what everyone’s own strengths and challenges are. A workshop that distinguishes itself from other programs because you not only talk and exchange, but you also really get to work on the transformation of limiting patterns within your family. This way you will immediately see clear results!

In this workshop you will learn how

  • Everyone stands up for themselves from their strength and can therefore also be there for others
  • You can put effective behavior into practice and thereby achieve desired results
  • You can break through limiting family patterns

The result
The foundation of your family is strengthened by more trust, respect and open and honest communication. Family relationships change and get a boost, creating more fun and a stronger family bond. You will see that situations have different, more positive results and that this day leads to lasting (behavioral) change.

Why are horses such wonderful teachers

Horses are non-judgmental, honest mirrors, giving us immediate feedback in every situation. They live in the wild in a herd. As humans we can learn a lot from their group dynamics, (non-verbal) communication and leadership style. In order to survive, horses have evolved into highly sensitive and social animals, able to notice the slightest inconsistency in their environment. Horses feel and respond to our intentions, emotions and thoughts, which we express ‘unconsciously’ through our body language. You will learn to become more aware of this based on the horse’s reactions and the coach’s intervention. Sessions with horses are highly interactive and provide direct learning experiences that are difficult to obtain in a more traditional learning environment

What others say about the family workshop

‘What wonderful insights it has given us. We spend a whole day working together on how we communicate, what we encounter within the family and, above all, how we can improve this. Not only insight into how our patterns work, but above all we immediately get to work on doing things differently. It’s a lot nicer at home now!’
