Educationist & Author

Passion meets Profession

In efforts to explore the fullest potential of human-horse relationship and to facilitate experiential learning experiences beyond the classrooms, I pursued an EAGALA approved facilitator course becoming the first Middle-Eastern Horse-Powered-Reading Instructor. A qualified member of the EAHAE and certified horse-assisted educator based on the HorseDream Concept.

Horses have been an inspiration to me, so much so that it formed my family's favorite unit study theme in the year I home-schooled my  two eldest sons during which I’ve gained a first-hand and broadened perspective in education. It also forms the motivation for sharing my learning and experiences in The Horse Book Series and in Integrated Learning & Family Engagement.

There is a consistent pursuit in all that I do, that is enriching educational experiences.  Read More...

If you resonate with what I do, I invite you to learn with me, reflect with me, and connect with me.

Welcome.

Horse-Guided Learning

"There is alot we can learn about ourselves when we let the horses guide us. They are sentient beings and as prey animals are very intuitive and attentive of their surroundings. If we observe their feedback, it can give us alot of clues about our own behavior. But we have to change our mentality from 'the horse needs to do something different' to ' maybe I should try a different approach'." -MSB Connect 

We work with metaphors, where horses take different roles, and helps children develop a love for reading,  life-skills and overcoming social-emotional barriers.

Unlike humans, horses will give your honest, unbiased feedback about your behavior. This is because horses are able to communicate with your true self (they ignore your outer layers) and are 100% present in the moment. All activities are conducted from the ground and does not involve riding. No prior experience with horses is required. We only work in very small groups.
