HORSE & HUMAN COLLABORATION
We believe in training and working with horses in a collaborative, non-violent paradigm that moves forward from some of the old-school techniques that included dominance, punishment and pain as incentive to work for humans.
These methods contribute to a willing collaboration built on a foundation of choice, trust, respect, and mutual benefit. We share this model with horse people from beginner to advanced in any discipline, including herd management principles to nurture an Eagala Model therapeutic herd.
It is equally compelling to draw from these lessons in language, leadership and collaboration and apply them to our human relationships and context. Fred speaks on the topic, and offers opportunities for individuals and professional organizations to explore leadership skills learned from this powerful example of positive reinforcement which strengthens teams and leaders, while it softens and improves communication and morale.
Nurturing a Therapeutic Herd
Mindful principles of Horse & Human Collaboration
Fred has presented on how to incorporate a collaborative and supportive approach to managing your equine herd for therapeutic work. His presentations culminated in printing the Equine Collaborator’s Bill of Rights, featured below and available in our store. Fred and the Red Horse team are available for private consults and farm visits to help you support your herd and continue to develop them as specialized professionals in equine-assisted practices.

"Fred, Ulla and Jenny provide effective and life-altering experiences through horses, facilitating in a way that brings deep insights, learning and application. They create a peaceful, empowering environment. I highly respect and trust this team, even in the most vulnerable situations, and am grateful for the learning and impact they have had on me and my organization."
There was much to appreciate! The facilitators were excellent, bringing themselves, their gifts and sharing from the personal and professional lives. I also appreciated the interaction with the other participants, all of whom taught me something valuable. I would recommend the Trauma Informed Care Workshop for any and all therapists, working and in training. Any business culture that wants to be respectful of employees. Law enforcement and 1st responders as well, even policy makers.
