Evelyn started to learn the culture and language of horses in the late 90's and immediately saw the powerful learning opportunities available through working and playing with horses on the ground. Horses, unable to lie, provide us with real direct feedback about your leadership and communication skills. Unimpressed by our clothes, bank accounts, or job titles, horses offer us unique and powerful feedback that is rarely available to us in the rest of our lives. Fellow mammals, their similarities and differences present us with a wealth of opportunities to investigate who we are as people, as leaders, as followers, as herdmates and as whole sentient beings.
