At Equinection, through Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL), you will find that building relationships with our horses is a direct path to knowing your true self. And, you will find that compassionate self-awareness opens the door to the human spirit.

Self-awareness recognizes the root causes of behaviors and beliefs, the motivations that determine goals and the emotions that drive communication.

Self-awareness is rooted in courage.

Self-awareness is a doorway to freedom — freedom to choose joy over all possible choices.

Sharon, NC.

"Karen and her horses showed me that the authenticity with which I walk, speak, and even stand still has a profound effect on those in my presence. You can't fake it with a horse. He will lovingly, but clearly, let you know when you are not authentically present, and he will steadfastly hold his ground until you come back to the moment, back to the one you're with, back to yourself. When you do, the healing energy of connection is palpable and deeply moving."

What I learned about myself from Karen and the horses has changed how I walk around in the world. I can step away from struggle and replace fear with love. The connection I made with the horses is one that I will carry with me forever.
