Equine Guided Education ~ Horse therapy for Humans

What is Equine Guided Education ? 

In it’s simplest form, EGE integrates equine interactions, somatic experiences, and cognitive reflections in unique processes of personal development.  

 Time with horses, like time in nature, is soothing for our nervous system and brings us into the present moment.  Communing with Horses in Nature, is a highly effective way to invite healing, welcome learning and experience growth. 

As an equine guided educator, I support you through practices and land based rituals, to learn how to regulate your nervous system, release burdens of stress and overwhelm and explore NEW ways of being.   Imagine being able to think more clearly – feel emotions without getting overwhelmed by them, and experience more joy and peace in your life. 

For many, the times we live in are often fast paced, toxic, dysfunctional, oppressive  and may leave you feeling untethered and overwhelmed. Know that shifting out of SURVIVAL mode and into a THRIVING mode is within your reach.  Learning how to discharge stress and connect with your wise body, insightful mind, and vibrant spirit is the work, our horses are here to support you with. Think of it as nature therapy with horses, for humans.

The MAGIC of Horses 

 Many people are captivated by the magnificence of horses.  Their power, strength, grace, beauty, freedom, wildness and curiosity, has captivated us for centuries. Horses have evolved from Beasts of Burden,  to Cherished Partners in the healing and evolution of the human spirit.

Many of us are drawn to, and inspired by horses, and therefore compelled to listen to their messages. Equine communication is often received with a much higher level of openeness, then feedback from another person. There is no agenda. They have no ‘judgements or negative interpretations’. Instead they meet you in the moment, as you are, animal to animal. 

What participants say MOST often about their experiences of equine guided interactions?

  • They report feeling lighter, calmer and more at ease in their body
  • They speak about feeling centred, and grounded 
  • They share about feeling seen, supported and safe in the horses presence 
  • They report experiencing relationships with others differently and being perceived differently by others
  • They talk about feeling more open, inspired, connected, and often experience bursts of creative energy 


 Horses are masters of self-regulation.  When we spend time with them, we co-regulate together. Their inter-dependant way of living; collaborative, creative, curious, confident, clear & kind – invites humans into a more YIN or  innately feminine way of being.   


What happens during an EGE session, workshop or retreat? 

 All interactions with the horses begin on the ground. At liberty, where both horse and human are free to move, be, connect and relate in their own way, and at their own pace.

You will be guided through somatic (body centred) practices, and land based rituals that connect body, with mind and spirit. The horses respond to how you show up, what the quality of your energy is like, and how present and centred your able to be. They respond to YOU in the moment. They’ll offer non-judgemental feedback, and invite you to practice connecting with your authentic self. The more you’re able to embody and  move with a centred presence- the varied your interactions will be with them. 


Guided interactions include:

  • Interactions with a single horse, and/or the herd.  
  • Leading in hand, and grooming activities.
  •  Facilitated Round pen sessions (can help participants gain clarity or healing on a particular topic, issue or question)
  • We may explore a therapeutic riding experience atop a horse. Such a mounted moving meditation session, supports further somatic experiencing and opportunity for both releasing and embodiment.    

Who is Equine Guided Education (EGE) for?

 PRIVATE sessions are for anyone drawn to nature and horses, who seek to experience the healing power of horses.
For those who have explored talk therapy and/or other modalities of healing without gaining much traction – a highly experiential body based approach may be a viable alternative or addition to. 
Healers, Wellness Practitioners, Coaches, Parents, Health & Human Services Professionals, Small Business Owners, Entrepreneurs, Creatives and OUTSIDE THE BOX movers and shakers, are often elated to experience how the magic of horses can bring a unique addition to the way in which they offer their services or move through the world.
