What will a workshop provide?
A day-long workshop will include individual and group activities (with horses), individual coaching, and complimentary learning materials. Fresh snacks, lunch, and drinks will be provided.
Will riding be involved?
No. All Equine Assisted exercises and interactions with the horse will be on the ground.
I don’t have any horse experience and I’m a bit nervous around these large animals. Can I still participate?
YES! Whether you’re experienced or a novice, Equine Assisted Life Coaching will be a unique, life-changing experience. We do training with gentle horses, and safety measures will be demonstrated and employed. That said, throughout the day we will encourage you to lead your own experience by participating as little or as much as you are comfortable with.
What do I need to bring/wear?
Watch the weather before you come, but jeans and boots or closed-toed shoes, such as a good tennis shoe, are key. Bring layers that you don’t mind getting dusty or dirty. A hat, sunglasses, rain jacket, and sunscreen are recommended as most if not all exercises will be outdoors.
Where can I find out more information on Equine Assisted Life Coaching?
Kelley was trained and certified by the Koelle Institute, however there are many materials available on the Internet that explain the benefit of using horses in a therapeutic process.
