*THESE ARE NOT FOR RESALE*
The Polyvagal Theory, Equine Behaviour, and the Horse-Human Relationship
This is the text with two of the illustrations that were included in the winning poster presentation Sarah Schlote made at the International Society for Equitation Science conference in Guelph, Ontario in 2019 (see page 83 of the proceedings).
This handout provides an overview of four resourcing strategies derived from Bodynamics, with additional commentary provided from the standpoint of Somatic Experiencing® and the polyvagal theory for added clarity. Thanks to Bodynamics trainer Anne Isaacs, MSW, LCSW for granting permission to create this handout.
