Explore who you are and how you lead through the nonverbal magic of connecting with a horse.
Equus Coaching combines traditional life coaching methods with the intuitive nature of horses. The horse essentially acts as a mirror, reflecting our fears, our strengths and our impact on others. Horses have survived for millions of years through their instincts which give them the innate ability to recognize potential danger as well as relate and adapt to their surroundings. They have the uncanny ability to reflect your behavior showing you how it affects others, without judgment. The information you glean from being with horses can greatly improve your relationship with yourself and others, help you gain clarity or advance your goals, and enhance your overall sense of well-being.
What to expect in a session?
Sessions begin with pre-work to understand your objectives and concerns. You will then have the opportunity to interact with the horse, using structured and unstructured ground exercise. Periodically, I’ll check in with you to see how things are feeling. I’ll ask question and offer observations to explore how you can build on and bring clarity to what feels good and shift what doesn’t. Then, you’ll have time to be with the horse again.
Much of your time with the horse is conducted in silence, “in wordlessness”. You’ll have a chance to reflect on what you can bring back into your life from the experience. Then you can honor your time with the horse and we’ll bring the session to a close. You need no experience with horses and will not be riding them. I will guide you through everything to need to know to have a safe and unique experience.
The Power of Experience
“Beth did a fabulous job of balancing the conversation with the experience. I have experience in breathwork and healing but this experience was like no other. The horse’s feedback was immediate. It was as if there was a mirror image of my energy being expressed and translated. I was able to see how my presence/energy could affect the situation and it was both reassuring and at times, a clue for me to dig deeper to find the result I was hoping for. The beauty was when I had to dig deeper, I could shift my presence, which in turn shifted Leia’s, and ultimately created a different result. When I left the session with the horse, Beth was there to help me clarify my thoughts and find closure. I truly felt that my body was vibrating and energized after the work. Thank you Beth and Leia!”

“Beth has uncovered a niche in the realm of coaching in which her personality and presence really shine. Her relaxed groundedness helped my parents and me get comfortable being in close contact with the horses, something none of us had experienced in a long time. That comfort level soon turned to joy and overall lightness. From that place, Beth's gentle, intuitive, skilled inquisitiveness allowed us to dive deep into self-reflection as we worked with the horses. What an amazing experience. I look forward to another equine coaching session with Beth, this time with my children.”
