I have been busy with Mt Lyford Horse Treks and Otahuna Horse Riding. In addition to my psychotherapy practice I assist my wife, Kate, in these great ventures. I do a lot of the IT stuff and I am a Director of the company. Is there some connection between horses and my psychotherapy work? There sure is! Hardly a day goes by when I do not connect the “partnering up” theme based on the principles of Natural Horsemanship with some aspect of the psychodynamics I get involved with. The connection with the rider and the horse is not unlike the connection between the conscious self and the deeper, stronger forces within.
The other connection is that working on the Horse ventures keeps me away from mt psychological dabbeling here on the Psyberspace Weblog, but who knows, as we consolidate that might change somewhat.
