Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning
what is Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning and how will it help me?
EFEL is a gentle but powerful therapeutic method for self-development, self-empowerment and leadership.
The reason it's so effective is that it's a combination of learning powerful self-awareness, leadership and emotional agility tools in a safe space, using discussion and creative experiences, with experiences with horses that allow you to become aware of yourself in the moment and embody that new way of being.
Horses are the most amazing teachers because of their highly sensitive nature.
To survive in the wild depends on them being totally present and able to notice the subtlest changes in their herd mates (which includes the humans in their vicinity) and the environment.
In Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning the horses teach us to become aware of this form of communication. We learn to become present in the moment and to listen to the language our body is speaking, becoming more intuitively aware of ourselves, others and our reactions to them and when we feel we need to change something, the horse will respond immediately without any judgement, allowing us to feel the difference that change can make to our relationship with ourselves and others.
EFL is so effective because the learning is experiential…and fun!
We can all agree with spoken wisdom or advice we hear but to translate that knowledge into feeling and be able to embody that new way of being in the presence and with the support of a horse, takes the learning to a much deeper level and allows the knowledge through, in a natural, felt way.
So, through activities with horses,* supported by ground-breaking research on communication, psychology, self-development and leadership, the Medicine Horse Way and Eponaquest Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning models have a wonderful, natural way of bringing insights and 'aha' moments to people in a most memorable and heart-warming way.
I offer private self-development sessions, themed courses and leadership training for individuals, businesses and those who wish to bring a new form of socially intelligent interaction and communication into the world.

*no experience is necessary, all activities are on foot, there's no riding involved.
In 1-1 coaching, I invite you to join me and the horses in a safe space where you can explore your personal limitations and ways of being and move through them, stepping into your strength and towards your goals...
I will guide you in exploring your connection with yourself, your body and the environment. Learn to become aware of the 90% of communication that's non-verbal and how to master it, and get in touch with your emotions, learning see them as your allies, full of information for you to navigate your life with.
My aim is that, with the help of the horses, you'll become more in tune with your own inner guidance and intuition, find balance between your mind, body and spirit and step into your true, authentic self with confidence and joy.
