Horses are Key

To evade predators, horses have evolved to be extremely sensitive to their environment. They instinctively analyze and react to our body language and other nonverbal cues. As a result, we are able to gain insight into our own nonverbal communication and behavior patterns. The Eagala Model invites clients into an arena for ground-based interaction with horses to facilitate the therapeutic process. These horses become the focal point in client-driven discovery and analysis.

The horse is a dynamic, powerful, emotional living being. The horse can influence people in incredibly powerful ways. When there is no riding they can be 100% themselves when they don’t have a human directing their every move. Since horses are sensitive to non-verbal communication they respond to what message the human is giving at that moment. The horse will mirror the human.
