Horse assisted coaching in the Harz mountains
Now the time had come. Our first silent language – horse-assisted manager coaching at the Reit- und Sporthotel Nordmann in Stangerode in the Harz Mountains could begin.
At 10 am, the participants were picked up at the hotel by a jeep which, after a short safari through herds of bison, Highlander and Galloway, brought them to the seminar venue: a small pasture in a slender valley, surrounded by large trees and rolling hills.
The participants were welcomed with coffee and cold drinks. A short introduction to equine coaching followed, and then it went straight to the horse.
The two Haflinger mares Uganda and Urofina, two ladies with very strong self-confidence, as well as the two cold-blood geldings Elliot and Elton, gentle giants, were provided by the Reit- und Sporthotel Nordmann.
First task: leading the horse over several laps around four cones. This helps to get to know the horse and to get in the frame of mind for working with the horse as a feedback giver.
Around 1 pm lunch was brought, delicious bison goulash, a vegetarian dish, and the drinks.
Then it went on to teamwork. The group of six participants steers the horse through a course. This is about mindfulness, letting go, trust and dealing with each other as a team. The horse is a constant mirror of the participants. At around 4 pm, the seminar was concluded with a summary and tasks for everyday life.
A seminar with these conditions, the best weather, and the great nature, is an extraordinary experience.
Stressed and sometimes frustrated faces turned into beaming smiles and great joy after successful work. In our seminars, one experiences an immediate change in using a horse as a mirror.
Without going too much into detail, I can say that it is a unique experience to learn through our horses with all available senses. Our participants experience reflection and self-reflection here with the help of a "seminar leader" who does not divide into right and wrong but teaches through his acting alone. Such an experience, as confirmed to me in numerous feedbacks, has left a deep impression on the seminar participants.
The Spa offer of the Hotel Nordmann proved to be a particularly good preparation for the relaxed work with the horses, according to participants who had arrived the day before.
Next year, on 21.06.2023, our second event will take place in the Harz Mountains. Be part of it!

We use the Pixem video-robot to support our horse-assisted coaching. With three beacons distributed in the riding hall, one on the robot itself and one on the client's arm, the Pixem can track our participants and focus on them by zooming. The client completes a task. Afterwards, the video is used to evaluate and consider what can be improved. With the changes, the task is then carried out again. This gives the opportunity to see the before and after immediately and to improve quickly. The video can be kept by the client.

02/17/2023 - silent language goes Kenya
Back now this January 2023 for a fortnight. The aim: Sarara horses. These horses and saisis (grooms) take the guest out on horse safaris. We stayed there for six days. Teaching the saisis how to give their horses a wellness program. As you, dear reader, know, it is important to keep one’s tools and colleagues happy, so they stay fit, healthy and inspired at work. We practised the balanced seat on the lunge. The awareness of the riders body on the horse and experiencing the biomechanics of the mount. And a lot more.

Wishing you a peaceful 2023!
11/02/2022 - Further education
After a training course I always feel fresh and newly inspired. Processes in the brain and the body connected have always interested me a lot. I did neuro-coaching for myself to get a better grip on impulses and emotions in my private life. And for my profession, to integrate what I have learned into my seminars.

12/20/2020 - What a year!
A very challenging year is coming to an end. Unaware of things to come, we toasted a healthy New Year. Not long after that we could call “it a day”, better “call it a year”. It took us some time to realize what was happening here now. Since quite a while I was longing for the world to slow down and to seriously think about our future. But it shouldn’t be that drastic either. Nevertheless, we are departing this 2020 with positive experiences!

The way in which Silke uses the various horses to learn via their reactions on the human being and how she translates these reactions into accurate feedback not only convinced me, but also all our participants.
