Von Klein auf haben mich Tiere jeglicher Art fasziniert und berührt. Wer die letzten drei Beiträge gelesen hat, wird gemerkt haben, wie viel mir die Tiere geholfen haben zu wachsen und zu heilen- und dies immer noch tun! Tatsächlich brenne ich für die tiergestützte Arbeit- im Besonderen die tiergestützte Arbeit mit Pferden. Durch meine jetzige berufliche Tätigkeit sowie Joschis Ausbildung vom Fohlen zum Reitpferd konnte ich viel neues Wissen und viele inspirierende Erfahrungen sammeln.
Seit 2014 spiele ich mit dem Gedanken solch ein tiergestütztes Angebot zu machen bzw. konnte auch schon in die Richtung arbeiten.
Nun habe ich mir für nächstes Jahr vorgenommen diesen Gedanken tatsächlich in die Tat umzusetzen und möchte hiermit mein Pilotprojekt ins Leben rufen🎉
Konkret bin ich auf der Suche nach Menschen:
☀die Lust haben sich vom Pferd unterstützen zu lassen
☀die offen sind und sich reflektieren möchten
☀die gewisse Themen mit sich rum tragen, denen sie mehr Gehör und Verständnis schenken möchten oder diese bearbeiten möchten
Das Ziel soll sein, dass du mit Hilfe des Pferdes wieder zu deinem Selbst kommst oder dein Selbst weiterentwickelst.
Das Angebot richtet sich an Menschen ohne aber auch an Menschen mit Pferd.
Wer ernsthaftes Interesse daran hat schreibt mir eine PN für ausführlichere Erläuterungen.
Ich würde mich sehr freuen, dich bald persönlich kennenzulernen❤

Most of us were taught to try and make the most of a bad situation. We love to “look at the bright side.” We pat ourselves on the back for being a “glass is half full” kind of person. .
But the habit of looking at the bright side is causing you a ton of pain. Because, in the act of brightsiding, we're skipping over our emotions. It’s an act of avoiding our feelings. It is an action of pushing things down. It disconnects you from you. Brightsiding short-circuits the process needed to actually, truly, make meaning from something. To see the beauty of it. To appreciate the growth that emerges from painful events. We pat ourselves on the back for looking at the bright side. We think we’re being good people. We acknowledge that we’re rising above. Taking the high road. .
When what we’ve actually done is taken the detour and ended up on a one-way street that dead ends into a half-dried murky muddy swamp of emotional confusion. .
There’s a difference between brightsiding and reframing. Brightsiding skips over emotions. Reframing acknowledges them, demonstrates curiosity about them, and becomes a mindful choice. Reframing allows you to choose a reaction based on self-awareness and consciousness. .
With brightsiding, you’re removing choice. Brightsiding is a coping mechanism (credit for that statement goes to one of my amazing clients). .
When you find yourself looking at the bright side, take a moment to make sure you’re feeling your feelings. That you’ve acknowledged the situation and accepted it. From that place, you can take action. From that place you can heal. That’s where the bright side is.

Clients have all kinds of epiphanies when they're working with me and the horses. The beauty of this kind of introspection is that it's fast. It's your discovery...not a therapist leading you to something but your own gut - something - a source deeper than you - is at play. Alexia recently explained an aha....
What I learned from Junior that day at Wisdom Ridge Ranch: I can trust my instincts. I can improvise when things aren’t going according to plan. I can set my own goal, and find my own way to get there, and it’s okay if that doesn’t look like what somebody else told me the goal should be or how they thought I should reach it. ..
And, the real breakthrough for me: peace and calm aren’t things that exist somewhere out there, and I don’t have to wait for something to happen or stop happening, or for somebody else to do something, before I can have peace. Peace is something I already have, calm is inside me and I can have it for myself when I want it. ..
I could read that in a book, or someone could say that to me, and it wouldn’t have the same impact it did – for me to experience it that day, in the ring with a horse named Junior.

Aujourd'hui, j'ai envie de faire le point sur les bénéficies de l'équitation au sens large (monte, travail à pieds...). C'est en effet un des sports les plus complets !
Voici les 3 axes principaux que j'essaie de mettre en avant chez mes cavaliers et qui me semblent à moi-même essentiels :
🔷️BIEN-ÊTRE PHYSIQUE :
🔸️endurance musculaire, cardiaque et respiratoire,
🔷️BIEN-ÊTRE PSYCHOLOGIQUE :
🔸️cognitif, affectif et relationnel,
🔸️(re)connexion avec soi et ses émotions.
🔸️respect de la vie animale et végétale, 🔸️dépassement de soi.
Liste bien-sûr non exhaustive !
⁉️Et vous, qu'est-ce que l'équitation (ou votre pratique sportive / hobbie) vous apporte d'essentiel ?

This past weekend I/we voted YES ✅ in becoming Certified Practitioners of Facilitated Equine Learning. I/We voted YES ✅ to serving those who desire to overcome and embrace more freedoms. I/we voted YES ✅ to laughter, courage and making a difference to those residing both in and outside of the USA. 😀🐎🤠 Stayed tuned! This is an extension to my role as a health & business coach. I’m simply partnering with a few good horses to help more humans improve their lives. ❤️
This painting - Success! by Samuel Waller (not currently on display at the Tate) - piqued my interest and serene on the path to discovering more about the life of the coachman at the country house; which lead me to discover more about the head groom and postilion (with thanks to countryhousereader.wordpress)
Coachman: This role added a bit of refinement to the family as they traveled and entertained. The good in the category new about coach maintenance as well as equestrian care. .
Head Groom: Considered part of the specialist category of servants, he had the privilege of communicating directly with the lord or lady of the manner. Starting off as a youngster in the stables, it apparently took a bit of ambition and networking to reach this position.
Postilion: Whilst less commonly known, this role is still very much in use in formal parades. The postilion rides the left horse of a pair of two coachman were in use. The front left horse is ridden if more than a pair are in use in order to "drive" the horse. This role was traditionally undertaken by light young boys or men as to put less strain on the horse pulling the carriage.

Yesterday, on a trail ride with Zinny, we came upon cattle all hanging out in one spot. .
It’s birthing season, so there were many youngsters. We approached quietly and they stirred and mood, but, they didn’t run. Zinny was curious but calm. .
We stopped near them and just stood there. For a long time, at least 20 minutes. And, the longer we stood - the more we experienced. The quieter it got. .
Calves moved near us, wanting to check us out. Calves started nursing, slurping milk, and I laughed as the milky white fluid ran down their chins. A couple of them played. .
I heard the rustle of hooves. The munching of cedar. The chewing of cuds. It got me thinking about how much we miss in the world because we move on too quickly. .
Because we’re always about what’s next instead of what is. We don’t give things time. Time to settle. Wanting to DO, to be GOOD, to fill the dark empty hole of loneliness or not good enough-ness, or running from feelings that are uncomfortable. .
Our minds are always assessing, contemplating, judging. When, really, there’s so much LIFE in just being. .
Things come ALIVE when you’re being. When you allow. When you let go of what’s next. There’s also a special space you create with others when you’re just BEING. .
Cattle are prey species and sight is their most dominant of senses. And, yet, as this human on a big horse approached, they didn’t run. Because we embodied their relaxed state. We approached without aggression, or tension, or competition, or even desire. We approached with the intent of just being with them. And they let us. .
And it was the most beautiful 20 minutes of my day. Actually, my week. An experience that will carry me through today. .
And, so, I ask you… Where in your life can you practice just being? Where in your life can you let go of need and competition and angst and fear? And just BE with it all. Where can you embody a quiet curiosity? A desire to just sit with something? A desire to learn from being instead of pushing? .
PS: If there’s something that you’re stuck on and you need a new view, PM me to schedule a Boundary Buster call. $97, you + me + your stuck thing = freedom.
We, humans, overcomplicate things. ...
We’ve taken something so NORMAL, so biological, so natural, so inherent in our state, our being, our HUMANITY —- and made it bad. ...
I’m talking about emotions. We were raised to fear them.
How did you wake up today? Happy? Sad? Overwhelmed? Anxious? Angry? Fearful? Depressed? ...
And what did you do with that feeling? Did you push it down, ignore it? Getting on with things even though there’s a rock in your solar plexus? ...
Or Did you ride the wave like a drama queen making sure everyone in your path reckoned with the force of your mood? ...
Wildly expressing emotion and forced suppression of emotion are two sides of the same coin. Both are a needless waste of energy. ...
When I went to feed the horses this morning in the the cool, crisp autumn air, they were all quite playful. ...
In one pasture, eagerly awaiting his breakfast, Kris got all up in Zinny’s business. He used his nose to push her rump away from the feed bucket. He pinned his ears. He lunged forward. He did this exactly twice. ...
Then Zinny turned her rump to him and kicked out her back legs. Not close enough for her to smack him in the face, though she sent a strong message that he’d crossed a boundary. She did this exactly twice. Then they were done. Kris was playful and a little ornery. He expressed his feelings. Zinny got pissed. She wasn’t in the mood. She expressed hers. ...
Both got the message behind the emotion. Then it was done. They both went back to grazing. This is emotional sanity. ...
At the core of so much of our discontent as humans, in our inadequate and predatory leadership skills, in our political environment, in our day-to-day anxiety, is the basic act of fearing emotions. Emotions are simply like the engine light in your car. When the light comes on you find out why. It could be low oil, it could be a sensor, it could be your brakes. You rationally figure out why the light is on, then you do what you need to do to fix the problem. ...
Feelings aren’t something to fear.
Столько поздравлений, почти каждая история сегодня адресована нашим тренерам. (😅 .
, с днём тренера❤️❤️❤️) Оставайся таким же перфекционистом, меньше принимай к сердцу всякую фигню, помни, что все будет хорошо! Я с тобой❤️💙❤️💙❤️

Even Wonder Woman Needs Sleep.
5 wonder women arrived at Wisdom Ridge on Saturday to rage, to heal, to discover- to find herself in the midst of attack on our rights, on blatant disregard for our stories, and on dismissal of our trauma.
These women stepped into space with massive horses and found power. .
The learned to trust their heart. .
And they got clear about all the ways they give themselves away.
And they set some boundaries. They claimed self.
One brilliant woman saw all the ways she was stuck in pleasing and making others happy. She said “even Wonder Woman needs sleep” ....
And that became our mantra for the day. .
Go, go, get some rest Wonder Women....you deserve it.

Since there are a few new faces, I though I would introduced myself so here is a little about me.⠀
Hi I'm Aimee. Certified Beautiful You Coach, EPI Equine Assisted Learning Practitioner and Sacred Space Holder. Horse lover, book lover, beginner gardener, mother and hippie witch at heart. I love a cup of tea or a good glass of Champagne⠀
I love all things "woo woo" crystals, oracle cards etc but I'm a very down to earth and practical person⠀
I'm really passionate about reducing waste and living in an eco friendly way. I'm inspired by zero waste, but will probably never have just 1 jar of trash. Let's be real. I do love to buy ethically, locally and sustainably where possible. My dream is to live in a self sustainable home , growing own our food and bees. Oh and WIFI of course⠀
I love making my own natural skin care, perfumes and house hold products. I use Doterra Oils everyday and love mixing and playing with them. ⠀
I'm extroverted. I love socialising and meeting people at events. Although I wouldn't consider myself to be s particularly loud or big personality. I like my alone time too⠀
I love to travel and explore and I spent a few years working overseas⠀
Working with clients really lights me up. There is nothing better than being out with the horses and holding space for my clients⠀
I love Equine Assisted Learning and the power of working with horses. It is beautiful work and it is a way of working that spans so many ages and demographics. It's so effective at helping people create lasting change⠀
Don’t be shy! Introduce yourself below! I’d love to know 3 random facts about you.
Geen woorden, maar paarden.
DE leidraad voor elke equine assisted coach opgeleid aan de #keulseweg
. En wat is het soms moeilijk om niet in woorden te vervallen. Om niet weg te vluchten in social media, netflix of games. Om gewoon even STIL te zijn, te VOELEN. Tijdens een coachsessie met een paard ligt de nadruk dan ook niet op praten over.... maar vooral op ervaren, voelen en zelf je oplossing vinden. #coachenmetpaarden
When the power is out for almost 24 hours and counting, the wind has redistributed all the leaves and pine needles you spent hours picking up in preparation for your event on Saturday, you hear that the abusive, stalker ex is moving to CA within a couple hours of your house, well, you DECIDE that it’s all exactly the way it should be and you hop on a horse and go splash in the pond. #wisdomridgeranch #braveeveryday #inmypower #horsecoach #fearlessentrpreneur
The next thing… 🐴
I was working with a private client on Sunday. .
I asked her this, “what are your thoughts throughout the day?” 📆
She responded that she is primarily thinking about what’s next. .
I get this. I used to live this way. Some days it creeps back in. .
It’s something like this… Get out of bed, thought “breakfast, stretching, shower, out by 8:15.” During breakfast, “stretching, shower, out by 8:15, oh shoot I need to get gas.” During the shower, “once I’m out of the house, I’ll get gas at the Chevron next to Jimmy’s school.” Once in the car, “After I get gas and drop off Jimmy, I’ll get to work and get that report done before the 10am staff meeting.” .
Once at work, “I need coffee, then the report, oh, shoot, emails, I hope I can get the report done before the 10am meeting, if not, then I’ll have to stay late and miss yoga tonight.” .
And on. And on. And on. .
These planning the next thing thoughts occupy our minds because we don’t trust ourselves to just do the thing. .
These thoughts come from the “good girl” place - the place of wanting to be perfect. .
Even bigger, from a place of being afraid of doing something wrong. .
And, the thing is, your days are pretty much a known thing by now. You don’t have to occupy precious mind and heart energy planning what’s next. You know what’s next. You just aren’t trusting yourself. .
The more you do this thing…spend your days planning what’s next, the further away you get from your Heart’s Desire. Further away from your inner self. Further away from your soul. Planning what’s next is keeping you disconnected from self. .
Do this: before you go to bed, write out your day and what it looks like. When you wake up, give yourself 10 minutes to tune into your heart. Then forget about it all. Spend your day living from your soul. Your muse. Your heart. .
In the last 24 hours I’ve realized how much I apologize for being me. Even after doing all I’ve done to acquire my current lifestyle and job - which is pretty much what I’ve wanted my entire life. .
It runs deep, this apologizing. A lot of my apologizing these days is an internal dialog, so familiar that it’s barely noticeable. So familiar that I believe it most of the time. .
I start my day with it…“I should have gotten out of bed earlier….” .
In the last 24 hours, I’ve reflected on all my apologizing. .
In corporate, I was told that I was “too direct.” I was also told that I didn’t do enough to (fill in the blank….) .
I was also told that I did too much. .
I’ve been told by boyfriends that I’m too emotional. .
That I’m not emotional enough. .
That I love animals too much. .
That I’m intimidating. .
That I’m too nice. .
That I’m too wild. .
That I’m too shy.
And on, and on, and on. I apologized for it all….both outward and inward - beating myself up. I was taught to believe that we “own” our stuff and I somehow associated owning with also apologizing for it. .
I’d apologize without hesitation. I thought that was doing the right thing. I thought that was the courageous thing. I’d apologize without first looking inside to see if I really SHOULD be apologizing. The path of least resistance. Keeping the peace. .
And the thing I know is that all this apologizing whittled away at me. It made me less me. Apologizing for me being me made me small. It kept me small. It took away my uniqueness. .
No more. .
I AM: Unapologetically Insistent. .
I won’t apologize for being me. And, I decide what I want and I insist on getting it. Insisting, when it comes to women, has a bad rap. It can mean bitchy or demanding. I’m saying adios to that. I’m not sorry, I insist on my best life. That’s it. I insist.
Grooming a horse is a meditative act of love. It’s also an opportunity to connect deeply with another being. After a busy day, it’s one of the things that brings me back to my heart ❤️ .
It’s peaceful .
It creates a space for gratitude .
It reminds me of what’s important .
It allows me to give and also to receive .
It is a way of creating love from a simple act
What do you do to center, to ground, to step into gratitude for this big, beautiful, precious life?
#wisdomridgeranch #nature #gratitude #horsecoach #horseledcoach #authenticlife #couragetolead
Who is by your side today? Let them know how grateful you are. We can’t do this thing called life alone. .
Horses bond in bands (not herds). This is their community- some family, some friends.
It is in these bands that they stay safe from predators. Each watching out for others. .
Contrary to popular belief, it is not the stallions that run the show, it is the mares. .
Just like us, the argue, they nurture, they play, they protect. .
They are constantly communicating. .
They read every movement, movements that are unseen by you and I. .
Because they are like us, because they are so tuned in, they teach us. Do you have the courage to learn another way?
#horsecoach #natureheals #changeyourstate #changeyourlife #passionandpurpose #outdoorlearning #leadership
Relaxing and naps were obviously top priority for my little herd today. Why not? The sun was out and it was a beautiful day
Horses are so interesting to watch and they sure know how to meet their own needs. If they feel like a rest, then they take one. Fee like running around and burning off some steam, yep they just will
It is a powerful thing to tap into outlet own bodies wisdom. This is something that can be explored in a session so DM or go to the link in my profile to book.
