Welcome to Gentle Strength, where we offer equine-assisted learning opportunities for improved Leadership Skills, as well as Personal Growth and Development.


What if you could see how your leadership or personal presence was really perceived by those around you?


Well you can.

Be as gentle as you can, but as firm as necessary. When being gentle, don’t be a sissy.  When being firm, don’t get mean or mad.

My paraphrase of Pat Parelli in Natural Horse-Man-Ship

Take Hold of

The Reins

And Create the Work, and Life, You Desire

Horses reflect your leadership or personal presence.  They give instant feedback as to how your actions, attitudes and behaviors are being communicated.  They are a mirror for you as to how you are perceived by those around you.


Horses give you the opportunity to see how you are perceived.  If you don’t like what you see, you can experiment with another approach and see the response you get . . . Until you get the response that you want. Then you know the actions, attitudes and behaviors you can use in your everyday life.
