The Medicine Wheel Model

This is a non-confrontational Native American approach to working with and training horses, but it is much more. It is about working with “yourself” emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The philosophy uses the medicine wheel as a model: the four colors, the four directions, seasons, stages of life and behaviors that come with the stages, and animals, it teaches we are one and part of the circle. Horses too have four sides, the child, adolescent, adult and grandparent side, they mirror us as humans. The mirror/reflection tell us that how we relate to ourselves is how we relate to others, this holds true for horses. If we have a bad attitude and we are confrontational, the horse will mirror that behavior, just like humans.

This is just some of the philosophy of the Medicine Wheel Model. Research has proven that horses help people; with disabilities, and emotional problems or just young people that are misunderstood.
