Equine and Nature Assisted Learning are innovative, experiential practices, where clients learn about themselves and their life through experiences with horses and nature. This is unique and differs to traditional talk 'therapies' because clients may gain insight into challenges but due to the unique relationship they build with horses, they can also develop or integrate new skills to overcome those challenges.
Our clients include children and adults, NDIS self-managed participants, professionals, leaders and more. We offer social and emotional skills building, confidence, self esteem and body image acceptance support, personal development, professional skills and leadership coaching. Almost anyone who is open to learning or trying something new can benefit from our approach alongside horses, chickens, cats, native animals and the natural world.

Our animal friends hold special places in our lives. The love we feel for our pets is real and so too is the grief we feel when they pass away - even if others in our lives don’t quite understand or we try to tell ourselves it isn’t important.
Together, we will honour your grief, practice techniques to support you and navigate this new phase of your life.
