Learning doesn't take
place only in the classroom or on the job. It
takes place in the field, on the ground. Literally.

Your Leadership Potential
Through The Power
Of The Herd
Sept. 27-28-29, 2013
Outdoors in round pens
and small arenas horses are teaching men and
women from all walks of life lessons that have
the potential to change their personal and professional
lives. Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL)
is an innovative, interactive approach that
actively engages horses in facilitating the
learning experiences of humans. Research has
shown conclusively that horses have the uncanny
ability to mirror human emotions - anger, frustration,
fear, vulnerability, sadness, grief, anxiety,
and even joy and happiness - in the moment.
They're emotional barometers. Studying and interpreting
a horse's responses to our behavior provides
healthy insights into our own intentions and
mind-set, enabling us to make adjustments that
help ensure more constructive interactions.
The lessons learned during EFL programs or individual
sessions are then applied to our daily lives.
Equinimity's programs are founded in
the Eponaquest Approach™ to
EFL, an experiential learning model that builds
and expands participants' emotional intelligence,
self-awareness and leadership skills via safe,
structured non-riding activities with equines.
Emerging from the therapeutic riding movement
in the 1990s in Tucson, AZ, the Eponaquest
Approach™ was developed by Linda
Kohanov, author of The Tao Of Equus,
Riding Between The Worlds, Way Of
The Horse, and the recently published Power
Of The Herd. Since 2003, an international
group of more than 200 individuals - educators,
human development professionals, therapists,
social workers and medical doctors, among many
others - have apprenticed with Linda at her
ranch in Arizona to learn and teach the techniques
Based in Baltimore, MD, Equinimity
was established in 2008 to introduce young people
and adults to the exciting new world of personal
and professional development opportunities that
the Eponaquest Approach™ offers.
No prior horse experience is necessary, just
a willingness to engage in a dynamic new way
of learning and thinking.
