The Medicine Wheel Model to Natural Horsemanship is a non-confrontational, holistic, Native American approach to working with and training horses, but it is also much more. It is about working with yourself and your horse emotionally, mentally, physically and spirtually. The ideas are based on the premise of reflection and energy; what you put out there — comes back to you.

The program is culturally based, addressing issues relevant in today’s society. Topics include, but are not limited to: Respect for Diversity, Native American Culture, Native American view on the Environment, Native Horsemanship.

Traditional concepts learned while working with the horse: The Mirror/Reflection, what you do to others you do to yourself • Leading from the Back, encouraging forward • The importance of the Circle, how we are all part of it • The Four Colors of the Medicine Wheel • The Four Stages and Behaviors that come with each stage • The Rights of Passage

The clinic will consist of the following: Introduction of the Model focusing on the philosophy • Talking Circle, discussion of healthy lifestyles and holistic approach • Comprehensive Presentation of the 4 Stages of the Medicine Wheel Model • Learn the Philosophy and understand the Traditional Concepts of the MWM and how it pertains to Horse and Human • Demonstration of the Model with overo paint horse “Sioux Boy” • “Hands on” understanding of the Model: practicing what we learned. The Four Sides and behaviors, what to watch for, body language, importance of the rights of passage • Working with a horse, ground-work, leading from the back • Working with an untrained colt, showing the negotiation process (fear, escaping, anger, denial and acceptance) showing how we as humans also go through this process • Talking circle (closing)
