One reason leadership training with horses is so successful is because horses show us our blind spots without judging us. To humans, this can seem counter-intuitive because judging others is deeply ingrained into our culture. This is the opposite of how horses operate. They show up willing and able to let us be ourselves, and then gently reveal to us how we are perceived. They show us our patterns and help us unwind them. They allow us to make mistakes and learn from them. They bring us to our own attention and lead us to our own wisdom.
