Horsefulness & Horsomeness

Children, Teens and Adult therapy with horses. Mindfulness with horses or horsefulness is a a programme based on teaching the strategies of being in the present to manage yourself and your relationships with others. 

Horses invite us to be in the present, they create a calm easy space for us to learn how to just be. Rachelle facilitates one to one and group experiences with the horses.  

Horse therapy provides an innovative solution that provides a unique space for an emotionally safe, hands-on experience for clients. With real-time feedback, clients are able to reach issues where traditional talk-based therapies leave off.

Horses are the perfect partner.

Because horses are highly sensitive, clients can work through their life struggles by interacting with the horses without feeling judgment or interpretation by another person.


All the work is done on the ground with no riding involved.

The horses are equal partners on the team and are left unencumbered to allow them to interact freely with the client.


Overcoming challenges by being the expert in their own life.

Everyone has the innate ability to solve their own problems. The role of the therapist is to provide guidance that assists the client’s own process and creates lasting solutions.


Their stories naturally begin to shift, and have a deeply felt, profound effect.

"It was truly something I will never forget.  I have never spent time with horses, but have always wanted to and Joy was my angel. I get tears of joy!! Thinking about it.

Freedom to Choose

One of the things that I have learnt over the years of working with horses is how to manage my anxiety within myself.  

How to lead and guide softly and with confidence. This is Boy, my dream horse, his golden colour (palomino), his personality and athleticism attracted me. But at the end of the day, the horse decides if they want to be with you.

Boy gets emotional if I tell him off, he almost sulks. He loves to be loved and scratched and patted.  He cuddles into me with his need for acceptance. One of the things that we are working with in liberty training is clarity in my communication to him and boundaries.  Boy is my mirror, learning strategies to work together, are the same strategies that work within my family or wider community or organisations. 

At Your Point, we have a space of safety and care. We teach you to hold your own boundaries and communicate your needs from a place of presence and leadership.
