Have Fun With Horses

At Smoketree Institute the horses assist in developing the three "C"s. Creativity involves opening one's mind to new ideas and discovering ideas that cannot be gathered using linear thought process. Compassion is a way of viewing one's own and others existence and actions from a non-judgmental open minded perspective. Communication allows for many pathways to send and receive information.

Experience a New Perspective
Equine Guided Education is a dynamic international field where "Horses model the essential qualities of trust, authenticity, honesty, intuition, listening, and willingness of spirit." Ariana Strozzi, Horse Sense for the Leader Within. The amazing thing about them is that they have no agenda with us, they do however mirror back to us our strengths of character, our heart, and our real intentions, which are often incongruent with what we say we are; and this allows us to expand on our self-limiting perceptions.
