Leadership with Horses
Esther Cruckshank (Esther Cruckshank Horsemanship Coaching) and Jess Keenan (Leading Change Experiences) are coming together to offer this unique and powerful workshop for horse owners, combining both mindset development and horsemanship. Esther and Jess have a strong background and ongoing journey in personal development and leadership. Both ladies have a similar base for their horsemanship journey, starting when they were both young teenagers.
Esther’s path led her to foundational training for horses in various disciplines for a number of years. Now, she is focussing most of her time on coaching horse owners on the mindset and skill set they need, to develop a better partnership with their horses.
Jess has continued on a journey of self-discovery with her own horses, leading her to fulfilling her purpose by facilitating life skills and leadership development programs through working with horses. Jess is accredited through Equine Connection as an Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) facilitator.
This workshop is about self-leadership, both in your equine partnership and in your personal life. Self-leadership is actively developing an awareness and confident sense of who you are, taking ownership of what you do and being intentional about where you are going, both in life and when working with your horse.
This workshop is designed to take your leadership skills to a higher level. You will be working on the knowledge, skills and attributes that help you become the authentic leader that your horse chooses to follow. It is about learning to lead with courage and confidence, building a partnership based on mutual trust, respect and confidence. In addition, it is about building on the wisdom and skills that will equip you to become the pioneer of your own life and navigate challenges, uncertainties and changes that arise in your personal and/or professional life.
This self-discovery journey is designed to allow you to:
Become the confident leader of your own life and your equine partnership (irrespective of what discipline you ride)
Develop your emotional intelligence
Interpersonal / Relational skill development
Expand your horsemanship journey with a heightened self-awareness, built on trust, respect and confidence, balance, connection and challenges, with your horse
Learning to be better for our horses, rather than trying to train the horses to put up with our inadequacies
Equipping us with the mindset and skill set required to help us overcome challenges and move forward with our lives
Developing ourselves through increasing our skills, knowledge and wisdom toward self empowerment
This unique workshop is limited to 6 people, to ensure an intimate experience with a safe and non-judgmental space for growth. You will be working with Jess’s EAL horses in the morning, then after lunch you will switch over to working with your own horse in the afternoon with Esther.
