Wedgetail Trail Rides

 

Address: Launching Place, Vic 3139
Phone: 0417 312602 / (03) 5967 4516
Contact: Kim Wren

Kim Wren recognised her love of horses at a very early age, attending a friends’ riding school at every chance she could. Finally her first pony Tammy arrived. For the next decade and a half they were inseparable; attending pony clubs, competing in one to three day events, and state and zone game teams all over Victoria.

 

Her affinity with horses has never waned. She has been working for several years giving lessons to both children and adults, taking trail rides, leading her to complete training with Horse Safety Australia and Australian Equine Facilitated Learning (AEFL) to become a level 1 instructor.

 

For children and adults working with horses is immensely rewarding. Kids of all ages and abilities can enjoy the pony playground, moving ponies through obstacles, and games and novelties like egg and spoon and sack race. Leading, brushing and feeding can be challenging and fun. For people who would like to explore the powerful nature of horse-human relationships, learn a new language – horse.

Contact: Maggie Broom
Email: greyhorselearning@gmail.com
Web: www.greyhorselearning.weebly.com

Maggie works with young people undergoing a variety of transitions and difficulties, and incorporates Equine Facilitated Learning to bring out a variety of abilities they may have and of which they are unaware. This gives young people an opportunity to experience mastery, creative thinking, problem-solving and conflict resolution in practical ways with the horses as teachers and guides. Here she offers coaching in ways of engaging the horse in a partnership and providing strategies for developing a trusting and respectful relationship between horse and person. Parallels between working with the horse and everyday encounters with others emerge in the sessions, with clients able to compare and contrast relations with the horse and relations with friends and family. EFL activities are also ideally suited to young people on the autism spectrum, as a portal to increased communication and self-regulation. Working and playing with horses provides opportunities ranging from psychotherapy to personal development to leadership skill building. It can be challenging, fun and immensely satisfying. Often it can be profoundly rewarding. Please see website for more detailed information on Maggie and the range of services she provides.
