Story Book Meadows, is a faith-based ranch partnering with horses as teachers and healers. An experiential learning process called Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) allows children and adults to gain a better understanding of how their beliefs, thoughts and behaviours are creating their life. While engaging with horses, experiential learning teaches important life skills and relational skills thereby increasing Emotional Intelligence (EI). Understanding how verbal and non-verbal communication is affecting themselves and others is part of the process they will learn from the horses. The success or failure of relationships determines the direction of each person’s life. Our process of Core Energy Coaching helps clients remove the barriers that are affecting actions and non-actions of all their relationships. Whether it’s a personal or professional goal you are trying to achieve; improved family dynamics; or building leaders & teams within your business; our programs will bring about a deeper awareness of how change and growth will contribute to achieving personal and professional success. You will learn that your past experiences don’t have to dictate your future and there is healing and hope to be found. At our tranquil ranch setting, you’ll discover how success can be within your reach and freedom from emotional pain is a choice. By removing inner blocks and limiting beliefs each participant can learn how to better enjoy their life and bring permanent healing.
What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence can be defined as our ability to distinguish, understand, and have a greater awareness of how our thoughts and feelings connect with our outward displays and behaviours, as well as the ability to manage and express appropriate emotions and help others do the same. Increasing Emotional Intelligence will have a significant impact on all aspects of our life including decreasing stress, enhancing interpersonal relationships and demonstrating greater leadership and decision-making skills.

How do horses help people?…Horses authentically respond to who they are with. Because of their heightened sense of awareness and instinct for survival, they accurately determine what each client needs to learn about themselves. Sometimes they offer acceptance & healing and sometimes they teach. They mirror the emotions they read from the hearts of the clients they come in contact with which allows participants to visually see those emotions and choose how to respond. They are non-judgmental and do not see status, gender, or organizational position. The horses and other equines act in response to the environment and the energy around them, creating the opportunity for humans to explore and understand their choices, as well as the implications. Besides learning how to navigate their non-verbal communication, our four-legged facilitators â€ślive in the momentâ€ť and powerfully invite people to do the same. Horses are masters at managing emotions and have an extremely high level of Emotional Intelligence. As teachers and healers, they are amazingly perceptive and totally authentic. We see in the horse a quiet strength of mind, dogged determination and confidence. The horse never questions who he is. The horse has a trust and a belief in himself because he does not have an emotional component mentally second guessing him and holding him back. There is so much they can teach us. With the help of the horses, you will discover the unconscious reasons you think and act the way you do and bring them into the light in a gentle and effective exploration of your inner self. In a non-threatening and fun environment deep insights can be learned about your perception of yourself, others and God.
