Pony Power sessions involve setting up ground activities where your child will learn non-verbal communication, assertiveness, problem solving and leadership skills. As a parent, setting boundaries and applying consequences can be difficult. However, an experienced pony handler can help introduce your child to these concepts.
Horses provide wonderful insight into how we manage challenging situations in our lives. Horses, just like humans, are social creatures with distinct personalities, moods, mindsets and roles within their herds. They react as a mirror to people and especially children. So, a child who is given support to interact with a horse becomes the natural leader. In return, the horse feels safe and will cooperate with the child. These activities may be particularly beneficial if your child is lacking confidence, being bullied or struggling with behaviour issues.
