CONNECT WITH EXPERIENTIAL TRAININGS

The reality of relationship-based work, whether counseling, coaching, leading, or teaching, is that it isn't just what you know, it is how you embody what you know. Our trainings take your learning to the next level through highly experiential, hands-on work with horses. Relationship building is inherently nuanced - only through individual and group experience can one begin to fully understand the process of consciously building a relationship with a horse, from scratch. Through your own experience you will not just learn, but also feel, how to fully support your clients in building safe, connected, and healing relationships with horses and in their daily lives.

ATTEND OUR NEXT WEBINAR

Trauma Informed and Equine Assisted Teletherapy!
Friday, Apr 03rd, 2020 | 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM Central Time

This webinar is part of a new series: Survive + Thrive = SurThrive! An NL Webinar Series for Navigating the Pandemic.

Reccia Jobe, Rebecca Hubbard, and Jenn Weiss, owners and founders of Pecan Creek Ranch will chat with us about their recent move to telehealth. They will share with us the specific criteria they are using to determine with whom they do in person sessions and with whom they are transitioning to telehealth. They will then share the amazing and VERY CREATIVE ways they are incorporating the horses and the experiential piece of this work into telehealth. Lastly, they will share some of the benefits and disadvantages they have experienced thus far. Reccia, Rebecca, and Jenn have over 30 years of collective experience in the field of trauma focused equine assisted psychotherapy that they bring to this recent, and very quick transition to telehealth. If you have also made or are in the process of making this transition, this is a webinar you will not want to miss!!
