Horse Speak® All-Inclusive Retreat **Event is Full. Contact Host for Waiting List**

October 27 @ 4:00 pm - October 30 @ 11:00 am

Experience what it is like to learn, laugh and love your way into a horse’s heart.​​

Everything horses say to each other they say to us. Horse Speak teaches you how to listen to what they are saying and how to respond in a way that they can understand. A few basic “vocabulary words”, a willingness to listen, and an open heart and mind are all you need to enter the conversation.
This retreat will introduce you to Horse Speak, the exact and specific kinesthetic communication system of the horse. It will help deepen your understanding of horses, their behaviors and how you affect them. Six lucky guests will learn basic skills that will lead them to safer, more enjoyable and trusting relationships with every horse they meet.
We welcome everyone from experienced horse people to horse lovers with no riding or hands-on experience. Whether you show horses, own horses, volunteer at rescues or are involved in the equine therapy world, this non-riding retreat will inspire you. It will teach you how to offer horses enrichment and support them mentally, emotionally, and physically.
What We Will Learn
 
Heidi Potter will share the fundamentals of Horse Speak through presentations, interactive exercises, self-awareness practices, herd observation and hands-on practice with the horses.
 
  • Gestures, Postures & Signals-Horses have established protocols that they use in communication. Discover how we can mimic them, open the door to conversations and see immediate results.
  • The 15 Buttons of Horse Speak-Learning the most used “Buttons” of communication on the horse’s body allows you to offer clear and precise comments, directions, and support to every horse.
  • The 4 G’s of Horse Speak-Horse conversations are cyclical. Learning the 4-G’s of communication allows you to follow their protocol.
  • Self-Awareness, Mindfulness & Congruency-Feelings create the “look” and horses most care about how it “feels” in any given moment. Self-awareness of what you bring energetically, emotionally, mentally, and physically to the horse is where it all begins. Learn techniques to help you bring a more relaxed, grounded, centered and mindful presence to the horse in every situation.
