Equine Guidance® is a unique journey that accelerates personal mastery, spiritual attunement, and emotional balance. 

Horses are powerful teachers that give gentle and accurate guidance into your life through intentional interaction. This is an opportunity to listen to a language older than words where you’ll uncover and balance the energy in your nervous system. By shifting worn out emotional states, you will gain new insights to carry beyond the barn, arena, and Sedona.  

Humans experience trauma through relationships.
Healing trauma is an ongoing process.
Horses allow healing through human connection.
Hearts, bodies, minds, and spirits: Experience horse—human harmony.

Equine Guidance® offers a herd of hypoallergenic horses so that all people have the opportunity to experience three hours of sensory, psychological, and spiritual attunement in a safe, outdoor environment.
