If you could spend a day with two teachers who could help you connect to your truth, remove inner obstacles, and gently show you exactly how others perceive you, would you do it?
What if one of the teachers was a horse?
Human communication is 70% body language, 20% tone of voice, and only 10% words. Practice making that 90% count.
It’s often said that the way you do anything is the way you do everything. That’s why Equus Coaching works. Any relationship or situation in your life will be instantly illuminated in the supportive company of your Equus Coach™ and a horse…any horse.
— Beth Herman, Certified Equus Coach™ and Equus Master Facilitator in-training, Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching
A day of Equus Coaching™ is an ideal way to:
- Notice your internal dialogue that can keep you from reading others’ signals
- Clarify and express your vision so you can create what you really want
- Practice inspiring others to join you and follow your lead
- Deal with daily pressures by learning to stay calm and centered in stressful situations
- Enhance your relationship and communication with everyone
An hour or three spent interacting on the ground with a safe, interested horse and with your coach, Beth Herman, will show you worlds about how you communicate with others. Even better, you’ll get to practice new ways.
See yourself through the eyes of a horse
Horses give immediate, clear, fool-proof feedback about how you project yourself without words. The same calm, clear, compassionate energy that inspires a horse to follow you can make you a more effective leader in your family or work team.
Whether you are a “horse person”, have never been around them, or are a bit nervous about these big animals — you can safely learn to express your truth and inspire others to follow your lead.
Without fail, what shows up in the round pen mirrors what is happening in a client’s life. Your equine and human coaches will help illuminate new areas for growth — and Beth will follow up with you after the workshop to support you in what you learned.

I got my first backyard pony when I was six. Whether I’m competing in the jumper ring or facilitating an Equus session, horses teach me patience, wisdom, courage, boundaries, and love. I’m proud to combine my horse sense with my passion for personal development as a certified Martha Beck Coach, Equus Coach™ , and Equus Master Facilitator-in-Training.
As an advancement professional, my first performance evaluation said ‘cares too much, tries too hard.’ A challenging childhood led me to drive myself, sometimes to negative effect. Now, I specialize in serving the high-achieving, passionate, Thoroughbred temperament in human and horse. Join us at the farm to see how you can find your own peaceful power.
