Mixing horses and business, you should have thought of it! However, since the famous film The Horse Whisperer, the positive influence of this animal is well known. Autism, children, the sick, the elderly, prison populations... methods of support and therapy based on the relationship with horses have developed.

The latest innovation: horse coaching, also called equicoachingwhich targets the corporate world. To be tested in a context where management is looking for a new lease of life, where teams need to get together after several months of telecommuting and confinement.

Getting to know each other

A true expert in non-verbal communication, the horse has the particularity to give an immediate response to our behaviours, it reveals how we communicate and exercise authority1. Horse coaching is based on this concept.

At first, the seminar participants are simply put in touch with the animal, then they give him instructions, which allows everyone to evaluate in real time the quality of his communication. No riding skills are required. In a second step, this experience will be transposed to the professional experience with a coach.
