The Bundaberg Region is now home to Horse and Habit Change, a horse-powered life-skills program encouraging both individual and team growth.
A meeting with fate would see Sigrid Peters on a journey across the world to bring Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) programs home to benefit the community she loves.
Sigrid said a whirlwind trip to Canada provided more than her certification in EAL. It also created a landscape to build the dream of working together to facilitate more change in women, youth and teams all over Australia.
“EAL is an effective approach to human development that encourages individual and team growth,” Sigrid said.
“After supporting my good friend with the running of an EAL program, I knew this would be the way to provide people with the space to empower change.”
The new programs being offered by Sigrid at Horse and Habit Change are targeting teenage girls and women, with future programs being developed to cater for team building, school groups and short-stay retreats.
“Anyone can benefit from these programs and working with horses,” Sigrid said.
“EAL builds life-skills through experiential learning that will help people on all walks of life to better prepare and understand their individual journey.
“It creates a personal awareness by using the horse’s feedback to instantly and honestly respond to the participants’ stimulus.
“We are developing tangible life skills that people can apply to every area of their life.”
Horse and Habit Change feeds passion for wellbeing
Sigrid has always been passionate about health and wellbeing, holding certifications in both human and horse Bowen therapy.
“From there I became a personal trainer, nutrition coach and healthy-habits coach with my business Sigs Fit Bits.”
“From all of these different undertakings I realised that growth and evolution had to start from within.
“There is magic in horses; an innate wealth of instinctual response that can allow people to face themselves.”
Bookings for the all new programs will soon be available through the website.
