JP Dyal and Lisa Calder started Heart of the Horse for YOU! The human. Heart of the horse is built on 30 years of combined extensive horsemanship and personal development skills. JP and Lisa bring a unique and fresh approach to help us open our hearts through working with our horses by becoming aware of our inner landscape and breaking through our barriers. The horses heart is always open; It’s the humans heart that needs the help. In doing so we can have a stronger connection with our horses, ourselves and the relationships around us. Opening the heart between the horse and human is our love, Transformation is our passion.
JP Dyal is not your typical horseman. He grew up in the Florida Keys and was a corporate executive until he lost everything. It was then his life was saved by a horse. While JP has competed in many different disciplines, his true gift and passion is transforming the lives of horses and their people by combining his leadership development experience along with his soft and light style of horsemanship.
Lisa Calder is the creator of Mindful Horsemanship. Her one of a kind approach to horsemanship combines personal development and a unique way of using the breath while working with the horse, creating an untreatable bond of true connection. Lisa believes if we are only working on our horse, we are missing the art horsemanship. One must change their unconscious behaviors from within to create a lasting change in their relationships.
