Cynthia Hartzell: Inclusive Leadership

Title: Inclusive Leadership; a Horse Guided Approach

Description: Leaders can develop four key characteristics of an Inclusive Leader by working with horses. These are: respect, adaptability, cultivating a sense of belonging, and collaboration. This arena session will explore a holistic approach to Inclusive Leadership development that leverages our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual intelligences as well as key concepts from Dr. Peter’s book “Evidence-Based Horsemanship”. Participants will learn what happens physiologically to both humans and horses when operating from their sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system. Being able to return to our parasympathetic nervous system as facilitators, leaders and team members, makes us more effective and our horses happier.

Bio: Cindy Hartzell has studied horsemanship for over 21 years. In 2018, she launched Heart Soul Confidence-Based Horsemanship. She teaches horse clinics, workshops, retreats, and gives private lessons. EAGALA certified in 2004, she became E3A certified in 2014.

Tracy Scott

Tracy Scott: Lifestyles of the Wild and Free

Title: Lifestyles of the Wild and Free

Description: Every breathing moment, wild horses are individually and relationally focused on safety of self and herd. They are masters at thriving in harsh environments. Their highly attuned multi-sensory awareness empowers them to interpret instantaneously whether they are safe or not. Their very survival depends on it. This session will explore the following:
The complex social system of wild horses, how it impacts herd dynamic, and how they parallel human relationships.
Insights to the wild horse’s mastery of well-being.
Habits that help them thrive in harsh conditions.
Participant volunteers will experience interactions with the horses that highlight multi-sensory awareness and safety in self and the environment. When the horse has voice and choice, we have a more willing partner.

Debbie Busby

Debbie Busby: Ethical Considerations in EAL

Title: Evaluating and assuring the mental and emotional welfare of the horse in EAL settings

Description: A review of services offered by EAL providers reveals descriptions of a variety of meaningful benefits to the human participants: trust, respect, honesty, influence, self-awareness, self-esteem, self- confidence, communication. Service providers regularly claim the horse’s size and power as a significant element in effecting these benefits. However, what of the horse’s experience of these interspecies interactions? How is the horse’s mental and emotional welfare considered, understood and provided for in EAL? We will explore how developing equine emotional resilience, advocating for the horse and meeting equine species-specific needs in EAL settings are essential ethical human responsibilities.

Bio: Debby Busby is a certified and registered clinical behaviorist and doctoral researcher who assists ‘wits end’ owners across the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East transform horses and dogs from difficult to delightful.

Kay Anderson

Kay Anderson: HeartMath Intro

Title: Coherent Horse / Coherent Herd: What Humans Can Learn from Horses About Coherence and Thriving in a HERD.

Description: Discover what horses and their herds have known for centuries about thriving in a coherent state. This session will explore the effects of psychophysiological coherence in humans, and compare that to the natural coherence that exists in our equine friends and their herds. You will learn about the science of HeartMath, and the difference between coherence, physiological coherence and psychophysiological coherence, why it matters and how it affects our work with horses.

Merill Morse

Merill Morse: Equus Perceptions

Title: Equus Perceptions

Description: Understanding horse perception can improve the applied non-verbal cues and sensory stimuli that affect the outcomes of an experiential facilitation. In this presentation we will briefly review the biology behind a horses’ eyes, ears, nose and skin, and an in-depth, research-based diagnosis of how a horse’s response to stimuli: colors, shadows, shapes, volume sensitivity, scents, and how physical contact on various areas of the horse, produce different responses and evoke positive or negative associations. Understanding the research behind equine perception can assist facilitators in choosing the right horses for activities and more suitable environments to facilitate within, thus decreasing stress levels for horses.

Bio: Merill Morse is a certified E3A Level 1 Corporate Practitioner based in North West Montana. Her life-long experience learning from, and with, horses led her to create Merill Morse Equicoaching, so that horses could assist people in learning about themselves, just as they had done for her.

Merill Morse

Merill Morse: Horsemanship

Title: A Facilitator’s Horsemanship

Description: When marketing EAL programs, the messaging we use almost always includes an explanation that it’s ‘not about horsemanship’. Rather, that it provides a facilitated experience for humans to learn from horses and herd behavior. Despite this fact, it is important to emphasize the opportunities that Natural Horsemanship techniques can provide to human learning. We will explore how in-hand and at liberty activities that leverage the nuances of when horses and humans join up can be used with your clients. A demonstration of how under-saddle activities can be utilized to create profound experiences and outcomes with a client.

Dr Sue Binks

Sue Binks: The Power of Presence Part 1

Title: The Power of Presence: Facilitating Embodied Approaches to Learning-Part 1

This workshop will look at some key aspects of the practice of facilitation highlighted in Dr. Bink’s doctoral research, including:

  • The importance of facilitator presence: to support psychological safety; as a state from which to operate; and as a goal for learners
  • Approaches to developing psychological safety alongside physical safety considerations
  • Methods and goals of intervening
  • The challenges of attending to multiple sources of data, including both facilitator’s and the learners’ somatic experience
  • The influence of mental models of learning and leadership on facilitation

Jackie Stevenson

Jackie Stevenson & William Hancy: Humble Guests

Title: Entering the Culture of Horse and Herd as Humble Guests: Being authentically present and relationally responsible

Description: E3A facilitators rely on relationships with both people and horses. Therefore, it’s paramount we realize how we and others impact a herd the moment we step into an arena with them. This interactive workshop will involve reflective practices and a small group activity, demonstrating how an authentic presence deeply matters in a human-horse partnership. You’ll learn about learner and judger mindsets and how changing your questions can change your results. Additionally, you’ll experience how to become more aware of your relational impact with both people and horses, both inside and outside an arena, resulting in more positive outcomes for you and your clients.

Patty Beach

Patty Beach: Alignment Model

Title: Facilitating Alignment with Equine-assisted Learning

Description: The primary job of leaders is to be able to align and guide diverse stakeholders in achieving commonly held goals.

Patty Beach, author of “The Art of Alignment: A Practical Guide to Inclusive Leadership” and E3A Master Trainer, Lissa Pohl, will introduce you to three core Principles of how to create alignment on the personal, interpersonal and organizational levels and ways to incorporate these powerfully transformational principles of alignment into EAL programming.

Sue Binks & Lissa Pohl: The Power of Presence Part 2

Title: The Power of Presence: Facilitating Embodied Approaches to Learning – Part 2

This arena session will enable participants to practice developing and maintaining a sense of their own presence while determining what to debrief with their client.
