Equine Facilitated & Experiential Learning

Spend time with the herd. Ground yourself in nature. Listen to birds. Break out of your busy mind and become aware of your body, in all its honesty. Listen. Connect. Stand with the herd. Sit with the herd. Be part of the herd. Feel their connection – to you, to each other, to everything around them – and if its time to move feet run with them…

Welsh Boy Jac

Moving home and welcoming Jac to paintedhorse

Jac a grey Welsh Cross pony with an Arab tail, big dark eyes and narrow shoulders has now joined the Paintedhorse herd.  Jac spelt the Welsh way, will be the only gelding for several more weeks until the big horses Danny, Gunner and Prada are moved to join them.  Jac has instantly bonded with Ulha who is more or less his height and size.  Herd positioning was sorted out overnight without much ado. Jac came from a position of moving everyones feet in his last herd, to having his feet moved by just Ulha in his new one. The curious and lovable Dartmoors Grace and Hope, have had mixed reactions from Jac. Grace the little firecracker was a good friend of Ulha’s and has now taken to mutual grooming him too, she doesn’t let height become any issue.  Gentle Hope keeps a bit more of a distance as she’s not been invited closer at the moment.  At 18 years old Jac is a veteran, so it was a surprise to find there was life in the old boy yet!

Thanks to Jen Bradburn for the featured image of Jac above.
