Population served

Persons interested in personal or professional development, leadership
development, or trauma recovery through a somatic or body-based approach. Teenage to adult,
individuals, families or small groups.


I partner with my horses to create a safe space for exploration and healing. The
horses have an intuitive knowing of how best to support and lead the client. This safety and
connection from the horses help to co-regulate the client and allow the client’s Self to be more
available for exploration and inner knowing.

As an Eponaquest Instructor, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and IFS-Informed Practitioner, Barb partners with her horses to create a safe space for exploration, whether for personal or leadership development, or in the work of trauma recovery.  The horses have an intuitive knowing of how best to support and lead the client, helping to co-regulate the client’s nervous system and allowing the client’s Self to be more available.

 “The Eponaquest Approach to Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) is an interactive, innovative learning format that actively engages horses in the work of advanced human development and leadership training, teaching assertiveness, personal empowerment, relationship, intuition and emotional/social skills. The overarching objective is to assist and support clients in learning a new way of being, one that emphasizes authenticity, collaboration and experimentation in personal and professional interactions.”  From Eponaquest Best Practice Guidelines
