Horses Naturally Model and Inspire many of the Characteristics of a Peace Ambassador
The Ponies embody a connection to Nature, Peace and Purity that is in short supply in our world today. Being with The Ponies we feel a deep sense of Calm Peace and Happiness as we watch them graze. Neuroscience confirms that when you light up the positive circuits in your brain you turn off the negative ones. We see them frolic and romp and we can’t help but want to join in the Fun! They encourage us to PLAY and bring a smile to our faces. When we smile it is an invitation for others to connect with us, creating a bridge … Community. James O’Dea states in his book “Cultivating Peace”: “Laughter releases endorphins and builds up our immune system. It removes the toxins of deep stress. Humor, laughter and play are among the best ways to make that connection as a peace builder.”
Lessons From The Herd ~ Peaceful Leadership
Horses possess keen intuitive survival & success skills. They live in the Present Moment – NOW. The Ponies encourage us to broaden and build our capacity for Positive function when we focus on the present moment – NOW – our Place of Powerful Peace. Horse herd dynamics provides a great model for Peaceful leadership. The herd seeks a strong and steady horse for leadership, a horse who models quiet confidence and dependability. The leader will Not use force unless it is truly warranted. This consistent peaceful style of leadership allows the herd to conserve energy for real emergencies. The herd models social intelligence, emotional intelligence, collaboration and non-predatory Power. Do you agree that all leaders could benefit from optimizing these powerful skills?
The Language of the Horse
Horses are masters of non-verbal communication and have much to teach us in this area. We know that as much as 90% of communication is non-verbal. Science documents that we have neural intelligence centers in our gut and in our heart, as well as in our head. Our true brilliance comes from integrating our head, heart and gut intelligence. The Ponies were part of a University of Kentucky pilot research project on Emotional Intelligence and Team Building. This study was conducted with nurses and The Ponies at Pine Knoll Farm, home of The Peace Ponies. Click here to review University of Kentucky Research Project
The Way of The Horse – Peace Ambassador
We love the way horses just naturally open our hearts and bring our attention right back to the present moment, as well as modeling Peaceful Leadership and non-verbal communication. Cultivating Peace is essential to our health and well-being as a foundation for both inner security and international peace. On a larger scale, Peace and an end to war is essential to our survival as a species. We are building a really Fun, Powerful Social Community – both digital and live – for people to reconnect to nature, animals and well-being in a neuro-healthy way. As we cultivate, model and express Peace from Within it ripples out into the world to create a new reality of health and well-being. In his groundbreaking book, ” The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference ” Malcolm Gladwell states:
“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips and spreads like wildfire.”

Horses also hold the secret to a desperately needed shift in leadership to a balance of power as they are non predatory group animals in action. Horses can show us through “herd behavior” how to move from a dominance top down paradigm to be free & independent and to then evolve into interdependence where the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts; where 2+2 = 6. Horses & herd behavior can show us how to balance the power of a visionary leader who must be creative and authentic with a team of champions who must translate the vision, navigate the challenges and manifest the dreams into reality – To dream the dream into being. Horses and herd behavior can teach us how to balance power ranging from a power-less mentality driven by shame and pain so as to set boundaries and from a predatory scarcity mentality (where I have power over you) to an abundance mentality where there is more than enough to go around to nourish the herd. We believe that this process can raise the consciousness of the planet and make the world a better place.
