There she learned the techniques of horse therapy, and brought it into her practice at home. Now, she offeres her patients a horse therapy retreat based on the original she took with her daughter.

In Harnessing Wild Horses from PechaKucha Night New Orleans Volume 18 Musa Alves is a DJ, photographer, international fun haver, cheeseburger enthusiast, Brazilian redneck. In this presentation Musa goes chronologically through her life because reckless youth has been a constant theme. She is the product of a Mississippi Delta Debutant and a Brazilian bassist.  In her life, she has fallen off the horse a few times, but has always managed to get back up. Whether reckless youth has led to ambition or ambition has led reckless youth, Musa has always carved her own path by harnessing the wild horses that drives you to do the things that scare you, and challenge you, and make you vulnerable.

Yes She Kahn!

@ VOL 27 ON MAY 10, 2018

The Mongol Derby is widely regarded as the toughest horse race in the world: a grueling 1,000 kilometers across the Mongolian steppe, riding semi-feral horses, carrying only 11 pounds of gear and relying on nomads for food, water and shelter. Equestrian sports journalist Leslie Wylie Bateman thought it'd make for a great story ... IF she could survive the race to tell it.

How to Make the Horse Thirsty

@ VOL 19 ON OCT 22, 2018

Yoke Van Dam: Often we hear the frustrations of business marketers and sales executives when they say to us ‘I can only lead the horse to water but I cannot make it drink’. So how do you do that? How do you create a need for the client and how do you persuade them that they want to buy from you? Yoke Van Dam aims to give you practical ideas to create a need for your client by not forcing the horse to drink but making it thirsty. As a behavioural change trainer, facilitator and speaker, she specialises in neuro-linguistic programming and has a decade of experience in training and teaching sales teams and executives in finance, publishing, marketing and engineering; and the automotive industry. The Power of Passion boot camp has been popular in South Africa and will soon be going to Pakistan. Yoke Van Dam has trained and presented more than 2500 hours and trained more than 2000 sales executives and sales leaders and has recently been interviewed on Mix FM. When she's not training, speaking and coaching, you'll find her enjoying a glass of wine, watching theatre with her husband,Etienne, hiking up a mountain or just jumping into a waterfall.
