Equine-Assisted Coaching


What is EAL and why horses?

Equine-Assisted Learning and Coaching (EAL)  is an experiential journey where the horse, as co-teacher and guide, provides immediate insight into your relationship with self and others – how your presence truly affects the world you live in.

EAL involves interactive horse activities and experiences. Learning how to communicate with horses provides you with clear information on where you are stuck so that you can release where you are holding it. The experience focuses on what happens with the horse and they respond to you. We then explore how that happens in your life.  This new discovery involves seeing new perspectives, learning a new skill, a new way to solve problems, and see new possibilities. 

Horses are keen observers and sensitive to movement and emotion. They respond to what your body language, emotions, and thoughts are conveying – your non-verbal communication. They become a powerful mirror of reflection – tuning into your energy and reflecting back without ego or judgment. This characteristic makes horses masters at helping us attune to our own inner landscape and gain clarity on how to move forward.


Equine-Assisted Learning can benefit individuals in a number of crucial areas in their lives:

  • Increases self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Improves understanding of non-verbal communication

  • Enhances self-awareness 

  • Develops social skills and a work ethic

  • Expands coping strategies for new situations and mental health awareness

  • Promotes sensory and emotional regulation


Laurie and her team of talented Equine Facilitators, along with their beautiful herd of horses, are your guides and teachers on your journey of self-discovery and healing. Whether you have an individual session or book a group session – let the horse help you become a better leader in your own life. 

In Led By Horses sessions and workshops, participants have an opportunity to heal emotional scars and develop new life skills and practices. The horse-human connection deepens the ability to identify the root causes of what makes everyday life difficult: lingering emotions, false beliefs, old patterns, and codependent relationships… all roadblocks that prevent us from moving forward. Through social interaction with horses, they gently and compassionately show us how to discover our own wisdom and gain access to new ways of being.
