Would you like to understand your communication style and how it impacts your relationships?
Is time to get insight into why you end up in the same crazy cycle of conflict in your family or at work, with your ministry team or friends?
Maybe you feel like there is some sort of mental block keeping you from taking risks in your relationships or even career aspirations.
Equine-assisted coaching focuses on personal awareness, emotional healing and growth, along with discovering how to improve communication skills to develop healthier connections with others as a result of work learned in the round pen with horses.
I know that might sound crazy to you, but let me tell you a little story about my personal experience (since it wouldn’t be right to share my client experiences for them) that occurred at my Natural Lifemanship training.
I ended up in a round pen with a horse that refused to move. She went on ignoring me. Not a look. Not a glance. Just totally ignoring. Even though I had horse experience, I realized my old techniques were not going to work because I didn’t have a halter or lead rope to just go up to her make her connect with me.
She had to choose our relationship connection, and that changed everything.
Through using the Natural Lifemanship approach you begin to build the connection through applying pressure to her rear by clapping or giving energy to your voice. I know it sounds crazy, but wait until you experience it. So I was trying my best to no avail, only getting more and more discouraged and angry. My pride was hurting. My fear of my own anger erupting was mounting. I turned to my training instructor for help and he coached me with simple but profound questions (which is what I’ll do for you).
With tears pouring down myself, I confessed my struggle with anger and how I’ve worked the last 19 years to not raise my voice, to not get loud and in my kids face, but when they push me like this horse is doing by ignoring me, I lose my cool.
At that moment I saw with clarity four profound truths:
- I feel like I often don’t have a voice unless I yell, and that’s a by-product of my childhood wounds that I thought were all healed up.
- When I don’t feel heard, I get angry.
- I don’t know how to raise my energy level without being angry.
- When I feel like I might fail, I quit.
As I poured out my heart, right there in the middle of training, I could see how this equine-assisted coaching was about much more than working with a horse.
It was about working on me and my relationships.
So I took a deep breath, relaxed my body, and put into practice the Natural Lifemanship approach with a horse that didn’t want to give me the time of day. It was worth it, as the connection began to build and she began to pay attention to me and follow me by ch.oice, without any pressure to do so.
This is the beauty of a T.R.U.E. Relationship Connection.
Both parties get to make a request for connection and each gets to choose to participate.
What does T.R.U.E. stand for?
I’ve adopted from the vision my friend holds for the work at her farm to build connected relationships.
Yes, with a horse or with a human the principle of building a healthy relationship connection is the same. As a Natural Lifemanship teaches, “A good principle is a good principle universally.”
Since that training moment, I’ve witnessed clients and friends emerge with profound awareness about their relational style through a very short time in the round pen with a horse. That’s why I’m passionate about offering you an equine-assisted coaching experience.
I believe the Relationship Connection Equine Assisted Coaching Program has the potential to be a life-changing experience, heart-transformation, soul-deep healing for you.
A Growth Experience for Everyone
The Relationship Connection Equine-Assisted Coaching Program is for anyone seeking to grow personally, spiritually, or relationally.

Actually, the less you know about horses, the more remarkable your experience can be because you’ll show up teachable and without any preconceived notions about what to do.
