Harmony with Horses is owned and operated by Tricia Rudy, a Certified FEEL Facilitator, at Dogwood Farm. Located about an hour northeast of the G.T.A., at the end of a private road, you will find a sanctuary where nature surrounds you with clean air, clean light; where the only sounds you will hear are the birds, the frogs, and the occasional howling coyote. It is a place to get unplugged, be still, and remember who you are.
Harmony with Horses is an Experiential Learning Centre that offers Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL), and now Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and workshops as Living Clarity and Charlotte Brammer have partnered with Tricia Rudy.
You do not need a referral from a health care practitioner to do sessions at Harmony with Horses. An intake is mandatory.

This utilizing emotional information to understand our internal and external moment is what is known as emotional intelligence. When healthy each emotion tells us something about ourselves, and how we are experiencing the current situation, or life circumstances. They let us know when we are moving in the right direction, or when we have fallen onto a tangential path. They let us know if we are healthy or unhealthy. They tell us when we are comfortable with things or uncomfortable. They even alert us to danger and tell us to make a hasty escape. This workshop is for the individual who is looking to foster a deeper connection to their emotional information, their inner compass and to foster new levels of self trust.
Horses are extraordinarily powerful at helping us to learn emotional intelligence. Horses operate through understanding and communicating through emotional and physical energy patterns. This is their main language! They can tell exactly what we are feeling, and exactly what we are holding onto and avoiding. They then through behaviours and physical body language mirror and communicate this back to us. They then offer us unconditional support as we play, release and try to understand the information they give us. They teach us different tools and ways of being with our emotions and ourselves. They allow us to practice these emotions in a safe and healthy way. They allow us to practice setting boundaries, and laughing and being vulnerable. They do all of this with compassion and humility.
