Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) is an invitational approach with the assistance of horses. Asking instead of telling, facilitating instead of controlling. We engage with the horses to promote growth, learning and expansive states of awareness for individuals, leaders and corporate teams.

Interacting with horses provides us with deeper levels of self-awareness. Horses allows us to see our internal landscape and how we operate. We access the truth of our being and inner wisdom with grace and ease.

Working on the ground with such intelligent, large, and powerful creatures we gain self-confidence to develop social and interpersonal skills. Our teaching focuses on realizing human potential and building heart-based skills by developing:

Conscious individuals, leaders and teams

To realize our authentic self and awareness, nurturing presence and expanding consciousness, working with horses as sentient beings.

Invitational Approach

Deepening the connection to self, others and nature while gaining compassionate communication skills.


Contributing to the safety of one’s self, the group, organizations, and society.
