Painted Horse – Equine & Eco Rewilding

By 10 April 2021April 16th, 2021No Comments

Connect with your inner wisdom with the help of an equine ally and nature around you.

Paintedhorse CIC is a non-profit business located on 16 acres on the beautiful Somerset levels; a family-owned farm and horse facility near Glastonbury. This holistic haven offers a safe, loving and tranquil environment for healing and learning.

Equine Rewilding taps into the wisdom of the herd and how they connect with nature to help us connect back to our own inner wisdom. The therapeutic relationship with an equine ally is similar to Gestalt Counselling Therapy in as much as horses encourage us to be in the ‘Here and Now’, and being present is both comforting and grounding. Communication and connection comes through body language, thoughts and energy. Equines can pick this all up and they challenge incongruence; if they detect something hidden on the inside being masked on the outside. Depending on your awareness, they can present the hidden by acting it out for you to see or feel; or they stand close to you to gently bring the hidden out to the surface which often involves tears and letting go.

Paintedhorse works with adults and young persons on a one-to-one basis, and with groups. Sessions can be designed as a stand alone, to complement ongoing counselling therapy now and again or a structured and creative programme designed to meet individual needs.
