Welcome to Katie's Cradle, where connections are made.
History shows us that horses have been the companion of man for as long as we can remember, with the first mention of therapeutic benefits going as far back as 460BC. Equine Integrated Learning is now becoming more popular with more people seeing the benefits to wellbeing as a whole. It has been clinically documented that just being around horses changes our brain pattern reducing anxiety and stress and grooming a horse helps to lower the heart rate.
Why are horses being seen in this new role? Horses are prey animals and have to be extremely aware of everything that is going on around them, they work mainly with their senses and can pick up on the smallest of signals. They are authentic and honest beings and their reactions can show us how we approach different situations, they work as a mirror to what is happening with us.
Katie's Cradle have empathy based values which is seen in all the work we do, the horses wellbeing is just as important as the peoples, after all...
