Equine Inspired

Welcome to Equine Inspired.

Equine Inspired is very proud to deliver the Horses Helping Human’s™ program. This is an internationally recognised, interactive, practical and award-winning program founded by Sue Spence in 2006.

It is an innovative equine-assisted life coaching program that integrates extensive knowledge-bases in interpersonal communication skills, body language, emotional intelligence and personality types. It is designed to help people develop emotional control, effective communication and body language skills. These basic skills are necessary to enable people to turn their aggression or anxiety into calm assertiveness.

Horses helping Humans is a trademarked and licensed program in Australia and New Zealand and has been providing outcome-based programs to the disadvantaged for over 12 years.
Our reputation for students reengaging back into school or study, reduced suspensions, and helping disadvantaged youth and domestic violence families learn new communication skills to move forward in life has been recognised with awards, University Partnerships and community support.

Our Horses Helping Humans TM program program can help with: Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Trauma, Domestic Violence, Anger Issues, Bullying, Fears and Phobias, Disengaged or At Risk Youth, Disadvantaged people, Low self esteem, and ADHD

We work with Youth and Family services and are producing outcomes of re engagement back into school or study, helping reduce re offending, teaching self regulation, educating and normalising mental health and also working with trauma clients from Domestic Violence and abuse.

The Program Aims to:

Build Confidence & Self esteem
Develop Emotional Awareness, Control & Self Discipline
Apply Anger Management & Impulse Control Develop Healthy Relationship Skills and Respect for Others and Self

The program is designed to be effective with Families, Corporate Teams, Domestic Violence Victims and those with mental health struggles. The program specifically helps people to learn how to display calm assertiveness, to focus and to have respect as well as empathy for others.

In particular, this program is producing good results with people ranging from improved behaviour in school, reduced suspensions and better engagement in the community.

Most clients are referred to the program by psychologists and other youth & family welfare services. This referral process ensures that clients participating in the program are in need of benevolent aid due to factors such as family history of domestic violence, low socio-economic conditions; and mental health issues.

The program uses the basic principles of natural horsemanship groundwork (no riding) which is about building rapport, using gentle communication and respectful methods that are grounded in encouraging connection and natural cooperation.

Clients learn how they can adjust their own body language and breathing to regulate their emotions and improve their assertive communication. The program remodels neural pathways to change old behavior patterns and has proven outcomes with anxiety, aggression, ADHD, PTSD, strengthening interpersonal relationships and improving confidence.
