About Us
Who We Are.

Kerry and Julie met at a "coaching with horses" workshop in 2016 and were blown away by what the horses taught them. They knew equine-assisted coaching was a skill they wanted to add to their respective coaching practices. After being certified, they found it difficult to describe the experience because few people knew that horses willingly partnered with humans to help foster their growth—personally and professionally. So, in 2021, they did something about it by starting Experiencing Equine, an educational platform raising awareness about equine-assisted learning and development.

Why Horses

Why Partner With Horses.

Equine-assisted coaching taps into the innate wisdom of horses, which comes from how they are wired to interact with their environment and stay safe as prey animals. Horses respond to our body language and our intentions. They give us signals that serve as a mirror and deliver non-judgmental and actionable feedback.

 

Feedback from a horse is visceral; you feel it in your body. A message from a horse drives an “aha” not possible when it comes from another human (e.g., spouse, boss, parents). The results are often profound and can drive real change in your life. Having a physical (aka somatic) experience lays down a memory that is more easily retrieved when a similar experience occurs outside the arena in daily life. Your coach links the feedback from the horse and your body to the development of actionable steps to achieve your goals.

 

Equine-assisted coaching is not about riding horses—all our work occurs on the ground. Absolutely no horse expertise is needed.
