English Abstracts. Emotions as predictors of coaching outcomes in equine-facilitated interventions

Lisa Tometten, Kathrin Schütz


In this study, emotions were examined as success factors in horse-assisted coachings. 53 persons participated in the coaching sessions and filled out questionnaires on their emotions and the coaching success at three measurement points. The results showed significant changes in activation, calmness and negative emotions during the coaching process. Change in calmness was able to predict the improvement in problem viewing and activation was able to predict satisfaction with the coaching. Emotional techniques can be used profitably in practice in coaching with horses. Limitations of the study are discussed.
