What you'll do

We begin with a warm welcome at a safe distance while I share some fascinating information about the sentient nature of the horse. Their unique qualities make them powerful partners for supporting and empowering humans on an emotional level.

Then, we will practice some mind and body awareness to prepare for meeting the herd. You will be pleasantly surprised with your innate ability to listen beyond language.

Finally, we will integrate our new skills as we bring it to the horse for an up close and personal experience of interpersonal communication, connection and relationship.

This is an introduction to equine assisted learning which can be transformational when combined with life coaching for personal and spiritual healing and growth. It is also an opportunity to expand mind/body awareness for everyday life, health and happiness.
No horse experience is needed, no riding is involved and all participant's comfort level and safety is respected and protected.
Feel free to request a day and time that works for you and we will do our best to accommodate you.

We look forward to sharing this inspirational time together as we awaken our internal knowing through heart, intuition, body wisdom and connection with the Kindred Horse.
Other things to note
Please dress for outdoor temperatures. Individual comfort level is respected for level of equine participation.

I am a certified Equine Assisted Life Coach and creator of Kindred Horse Life Coaching and Sunsets & Solitude BnB, a place of rest and beauty. Horses have been a constant presence throughout my life. They have taught me more than I have taught them, for sure. Their instinctual nature makes them sensitive communicators, intuitive messengers , profound listeners and powerful mentors. I respectfully call them "Kindred Horses."
At this time, I am honored to share my love of these sentient beings with you so you can also witness their instinctual wisdom, which truly holds healing qualities for humans.

A grounding, comforting and unique experience! The time we spent with Ellen and the horses was both thoughtful and informative. This was a real treat and something very different for us city dwellers!

My friend and I were very pleased with our time and experience at the farm. Ellen is a fabulous host with such a beautiful home. She did a wonderful job making sure we felt comfortable both before and during our interaction with the horses. I would highly recommend this to anyone! It was such a peaceful and relaxing experience. We look forward to going back in the summer!

Had a great time meeting the horses. The snowy weather seemed to make the experience more tranquil. I would recommend this for anyone looking to take a break from the everyday and clear your mind for awhile.

This is really therapy, and then it's real facts on how to read a horses behavior. She lets you run the show, really makes sure you get what you wanted out of it

This was a wonderful experience for me. I am focusing on my own personal growth and Ellen and her horses gave me great techniques to help me on my path. The space was comfortable and inviting. Ellen was friendly, knowledgeable and empathetic. I also left with resources to help me continue my journey. Would participate in this experience again.
