". . . horses aren't psychic. Rather, their instinctual intelligence offers lessons that elude our own
thinking. . .The routine in Equine Guided Education . . . does not involve riding or . . . "horsemanship."
The horse is not expected to perform, but rather to be read, as a kind of emotional mirror and does not require any extra training to do this. "
