All of our work is based in the rigorous science of horse behavioral science. We do not anthropomorphize them, nor project stories upon them. Our horses are diligently engaged daily through riding and groundwork that inspires them to be free-thinking, respectful, partnering and opinionated. Not every horse makes a good Fika horse. We enlist horses that are spirited, special, keen to engage with people, and equipped to be robust and opinionated partners in facilitation.
As horses are animals of prey they have acute sensitivity to all influences around them. They mirror these influences in very specific and direct ways. This makes them trustworthy reflections of what is really at work underneath the story we might tell ourselves, or the qualities about ourselves that may be hidden.
You do not have to have any horse experience and no riding is involved. This is not about the horse; it is about the individual person, group or team, and what they want to learn.
