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
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.FIND OUT MORE
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.LEARN MORE
