 Authentic You 


Authentic you Women's empowerment Weekends 

Be True. Be Authentic. Be YOU!  

The world is full of books and courses and retreats promising to help you find your true value and purpose. All of us have experienced loss in direction, purpose, self-doubt, low confidence, anxiety or depression at one point or another in our lives. It’s normal as we go through the ups and downs of life. The problem becomes when we get stuck in those feelings and can’t move forward.

Sometimes you feel better for a little while but it doesn't last. Sometimes nothing changes at all. That’s why we created Equine Connection’s “Authentic You” retreat workshop differently.

Real, sustainable change comes when you find the answers for yourself. The horses will move you to your potential, and they are not capable of judgment and lying because the fact is, they just can't! Picture yourself working with a living being that's incapable of judging; it is a very freeing feeling as you learn.

The horse is known as "the teller of truth" who desires to "do the right thing". A horse's spirit will lead you in the "right direction" and will assist you in understanding your place in the circle of life.

Our workshops will drive you with answers for self-awareness of your actual true self. Be gutsy, be striking and go where you have not gone previously!Do you struggle with;

  • waiting to get results and seeking passion in your personal or work life?

  • trying to be the best mom, friend, sister, wife or person you are longing to be?

  • spending money and not getting the change you desire?

  • doubting yourself and your next direction in life?

  • sadness, loneliness, anxiety and depression?

  • occasional or continual self-hate?

  • the burden of emotional pain?

  • finding balance and inner peace?

  • finding your true gifts within so you can move forward with power and confidence?

A horse can not lie and no matter how you try to put on a façade about who you are, the horse is able to detect all the stimulus in you and it is through the horse, your journey begins in change. They will guide you to self-knowledge and calmness and strength that will change your life!

How we work:

Yes, we work with horses to make it all come together, and no, you don’t ride them.

You will interact with them, working with them as a partnership, because they will guide you to the deepest level of self-knowledge.

Even if you have allergies or a fear of horses, you can enjoy our workshops since an antihistamine normally protects you for the time you are near them and we will help you work through your fear to work with our teachers.


Why it works:

How can a horse teach you what another human being cannot?

It’s all about perspective and judgment. Let us explain.

Since you were a little girl, you were likely told that the world is not a safe place for you. As women, we learn about our world from a basis of fear.

If our teachings are not fear-based, they are shame-based. That makes us disingenuous. We put up a façade and pretend we don’t know the deepest, darkest knowledge we carry because the world could not accept or understand how we came by it.

The horse will only respond to the real you.

When you are with a horse, they have a way of reading you and feeling your energy. They know your boundaries and the true, authentic you.

Horses are prey animals and the number one thing they demand in life is to feel safe. They can easily discern between calm and nervous energy and they know if you approaching them honestly, without confusion and with your vulnerability evident. They will recognize your true self and they will respond to your stimulus by being able to sense physiological changes in your body as you work with them and other people.

This sounds so simple, but in reality, it is the most difficult task for humans. We are not used to feeling safe and vulnerable; they are used to wearing masks and exhibiting strength whether it is authentic or not.


Finding the real you:

In our workshops, you will find yourself naturally developing feelings of trust and self-confidence as well as a host of other emotional health qualities. Horses naturally ground themselves and all their energy must be grounded, just like an electrical circuit in our homes.

Horses have this natural, grounded energy because they need to stay connected to their environment and in constant contact with the earth to survive. By the instinct bred into them, they must live in the present and respond to it.

They will teach you how this can impact you. Whether you learn quickly or slowly does not matter because that’s another thing about horses: they don’t judge. They just are.

Join us on a process of self-discovery

Our Equine Connection workshops are not designed to be quick fixes for you. They are designed to be a process through which you ultimately find the road to your happiness, no matter what place you are in your life or the size of the burden you carry.

The horse’s pure honesty and their open responses to you will help you find the authentic parts of your being and live in tune with them. It will help you balance who you really are in the present moment of time, and guide you to create a workable balance between your inner being and your outer world.

Aren't you worth it? Life is way too short to wait to discover YOUR true authentic YOU! It's time you take action!
