Equine Guided Coaching (EGC)
It is all of Life Coaching however it is experiential. This means a session involves activities providing interactions between a client and a horse where the horse creates metaphors that reflect real life. The approach is non-directive, allowing for opportunities to problem-solve and be creative. EGE is solution-oriented and acknowledges the power of choice. Most activities are done on the ground, making equine-guided coaching accessible to people of all experience levels.
Equine guided coaching is also useful in leadership development because of a horse’s ability to reflect congruency back to everyone. So, in other words, horses respond to what they sense in a person and react to how an individual is really feeling and acting hence it provides you instant feedback.
Another term used to identify this type of life coaching is Equine Guided Learning. This means there is touching of the horses, feeling, seeing and moving with them on foot. There is no riding involved. The environment is in nature where all your senses are engaged.
