What We Believe

Our philosophy is that people don't change unless they are challenged, unless they are outside their comfort zone. The most lasting change occurs when people find their own answers to questions. At Horse Sense, there is actually very little talking. We know that the most effective and long-lasting change occurs through active participation with the horses, who help people recognize who they really are. With the horses, clients can practice new behaviors in a therapeutic environment and learn that in changing themselves, they do have the power to change the world around them.

Much the same philosophy drive the Business Sense side of Horse Sense. Two mantras inform our Business Sense work:

"Working Together Works": we are stronger together & able to effect greater change "in a herd".

"My business will only grow to the degree that I do, as the business professional". We need to embody, as professionals in this field, that which we ask of our clients. 


In addition to our business consulting services, Horse Sense also offers:
