MEET THE FACILITATOR & THE TEACHERS
EAL certified facilitator
Kate's horse, Indi, inspired her to train as an equine assisted learning facilitator, as she found that interacting with him had a positive affect on everyone who met him.
With a background in publishing and communications, Kate is interested in how working with horses enhances our awareness of non verbal communication and gives us skills we can use in everyday life. Kate also runs the community arm of HORSEPOWER skills for life to share leadership and anti-bullying programs with less advantaged schools and young people.
"Our mission is to create a safe place for our clients to learn and grow. We help them to build the essential skills they need for their goals and everyday lives. Through the power of this magnificent animal, the horse, we empower people to reach their full potential."
MEET THE TEACHERS
Indi is a 22 year old Appaloosa gelding. Bred in Tasmania, he competed in polo cross and showing, winning Tasmanian Show Horse of the Year. Indi crossed the Tasman to live in Sydney many years ago. An outstanding temperament and a real love of people (he likes to lick you!) make Indi an exceptional equine assisted learning horse. Before he hung up his saddle, Indi loved showjumping and trail rides.
Lily is a 15 year old warmblood mare. She enjoys living on 14 beautiful acres with her buddy, Indi. Lily enjoys being part of our Equine Assisted Learning program as she gets lots of grooming and pats. Before Lily joined our team she was a successful eventing competition horse and competed all over New South Wales. These days she enjoys grazing the days away with her paddock friends.
You may meet Beano when you come to the farm for a workshop. He is an eight year old German Shorthair Pointer who loves to be involved with day to day activities around the horses. He likes you to kick a soccer ball for him and often brings the ball to the horses in the hope that they will kick it!
Azou is an 18 year old warmblood/thoroughbred with a sweet and gentle nature. He is very popular with EAL participants. Azou has enjoyed a successful competition career all around New South Wales, where he loved to ride cross country. These days Azou is enjoying EAL, giving confidence to new riders and enjoying lazy days in his paddock.
