Feed forward – Horse Touch training module
What is Horse Touch Feedforward?
Horse Touch Feedforward is a one-day outdoor experiential learning and development program which uses the feedback loop in the scope of generating feedforward. Horses give action-based feedback and respond exclusively to behavior (action). They demonstrate how to use the information contained in the feedback process without taking it personally and the facilitators demonstrate how to translate it into actionable items. You will work with 1-4 horses, individually, in pairs and in groups.
