Personal Development Through the Way of the Horse 

This is the work I was born to do
Because horses are masters at nonverbal communication they can help lead us into
the unconscious parts of ourselves that wish to be brought into the light

Equine Essence

I have owned, trained and lived with horses most of my life. The horses in my life have been some of my greatest teachers. I’m gifted to still have my mare Charisma who has supported me in all my growth and transitions in the past 20 years.

Along with my lifelong horsemanship skills I have completed a 4 year program with Caroline Myss and Dr Norm Shealy in the field of Intuitive Counseling. This past year I recently completed my apprenticeship training with Linda Kohanov and am proud to be an Eponaquest Instructor and Power of the Herd Certified.

Whether your looking for Personal Development or to improve your relationship with your horse, I'd be honored to help you on your path.
Personal Development
This work is for the horseperson and non-horseperson alike. These workshops or individual sessions I incorporate horses into my coaching and personal development work with people. Because horses are masters at nonverbal communication they can help lead us into the unconscious parts of ourselves that wish to be brought into the light. Horses are amazing healers on many levels. They can lead us back to a more authentic way of being and bring our spirit alive, connecting us more deeply with our life purpose and connection with all life.
Equine Essence
My training in the Intuitive field not only helped me start a personal coaching business but it helped me to understand the language that horses speak. Horses are masters at the language of emotions, instinct and intuition. These qualities have gone underground in many of us because our society has placed such value on rational knowledge. My goal is to help the horseperson reconnect with these qualities in order to improve the relationship between the horse and rider. Working with horses in my way will not only help you strengthen your emotional and social intelligence skills for living life but it will allow your horse to feel safe in your presence and choose to follow your lead. Once you have danced with a horse and earned the ability to lead your bond will be deeper than you knew was possible.

Bridging Communications between
the Horse and Owner

Workshops and One-on-One Consultations

Most people are taught to train and ride by throwing their emotions and expectations on to the horse. I have seen this create a very one sided relationship that causes many behavioral and performance problems. I teach riders how to reverse the effects of bad training by thinking and feeling from the horses perspective. These breakthroughs come quicker for horse and rider when we learn to evaluate concepts like safe space training, horse instinct, personality types, defense mechanisms, body awareness and our own projections. Workshops are part instructional and part demonstration.

Eponaquest Instructor and Power of the Herd Certified

What is Eponaquest? At the dawn of the 21st century, horses are breaking out of their roles as beasts of burden, yet they’re far from obsolete. As horses are no longer required to work in our fields and carry us to war, they’re doing something arguably more important: working on us.

Founded in 1997 by author, lecturer and horse trainer Linda Kohanov, Epona Equestrian Services has received international attention for horse training and breeding innovations, as well as educational programs that employ horses in teaching people leadership, assertiveness, personal empowerment, relationship, intuition, and emotional fitness skills.

Whether you’re interested horses or human development—or both—the Eponaquest Approach allows you to experience what it means to truly thrive in life, offering you tools that open other worlds of creativity, insight, and empowerment, expanding your vision, helping you reconnect to nature, to the herd and to the community.
