Why Horses?
Inside Lead’s equine assisted experiences allow people to partner with horses without riding. Horses provide immediate, non-verbal communication as they react to human body language and intention. Because horses are sensitive, social animals, the feedback they provide in an assisted setting provides a safe space for people to grow and learn; remember~ “self awareness is the key to development!”

What You Need
  • A notebook, journal or laptop
  • A pair of boots and fall weather clothing
  • No riding or writing skills necessary
  • A sense of adventure for the journey
