EFL Individual Sessions – Facilitated on the ground

Personal Development, Transformation and Growth Through Horses

We offer the safe and unique experience of a one to one private session. Just you, the horse and our qualified and dedicated facilitator.

The benefit of a one to one session is that it can be specifically tailored to focusing on the areas of yourself and your life, that you are seeking to transform and empower. 

Experience or knowledge of horses is not required. The only requirement is an open mind and a willingness to engage. Even people with a fear of horses can benefit from this work. The horse is simply there to help facilitate the process. Horses have a unique ability to perceive and mirror human emotions, which allows them to provide authentic feedback, this feedback is interpreted by the facilitator and used to direct the process, assisting you in discovering your gifts and transforming your life.

It is important to understand that we are not trying to ‘fix you’ or solve your problems, rather, the horse and the facilitator are gently holding the space for you to achieve more understanding of yourself, more knowingness of your own behaviours. Supporting you as you co-create a new way of being.  The emphasis is on learning how to thrive rather than simply survive!
