At Horse & Nature we work with the developing and healing powers of animals and nature in many different ways.
We strongly believe in every individual's ability to find her/his own solutions. Animals can be fantastic guides, therapists, coaches and friends on the way - they never judge, seldom lie and are totally without prestige. They have a marvelous capacity for helping people to develop self-awareness and compassion.
The person you are in relation to ourself and to others - become very apparent when you are together with animals. The animals give you a clear picture on where you stand and show you new possible solutions and new approaches to old problems. The animals give you a solid foundation to stand on and to grow from.
At Horse & Nature we have long experience with working with people, animals and nature and we are very competent at what we do. On occasions we also work together with external partners with special qualifications in different areas.
