Free Equine Assisted Coaching to All U.S. Veterans!
Hanaeleh is pleased to announce our Certified Equine Coaching program for U.S. military veterans. This program is sponsored by a grant from the employees of Boeing in Orange County, CA. All sessions are no-charge to U.S. Military veterans.
What is Equine Assisted Coaching?
Equine Assisted Coaching helps veterans build healthy, authentic relationships at home, work and school through meaningful engagement with horses.
There is a reason why Winston Churchill said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” He knew something about the equine species that many are just beginning to learn.
Horses operate the way a mirror does, reflecting back everything we need to see about ourselves. Sometimes the mirror shines on our greatness, joy, happiness and success, and other times it exposes the darkness and our shadow. Just being in the presence of a horse is healing for most people.
Equine Assisted Coaching transforms the human heart and spirit. Horses are very present beings. They’re the perfect animal to help leaders develop presence, self-confidence and awareness.
Equine Assisted Coaching allows vets to successfully transition into civilian life. ‘Breakthroughs’ occur more easily and organically than traditional coaching methods as horses do not judge people…and they have no agenda. They are large, strong animals but they are also prey animals and therefore trust with a horse must be earned; they are brutally honest, mirror our body language and act accordingly.
How Much Does It Cost?
We never charge veterans for our services. We simply support vets who want to live more satisfying, productive lives by providing ‘a leg up’ through our six-week program.
When Is It and How Long Are the Sessions?
It’s a six-week program and each session is 2 hours. The next sessions begin in August 2017.
Where Is It?
It’s at our ranch, Hanaeleh, in Trabuco Canyon, CA. A map will be furnished upon registration.
