BOULDER, CO – The Academy for Coaching with Horses, the premier Equine Facilitated Learning facility in Colorado, founded by Kathy Pike, international author of Hope from the Heart of Horses: How Horses Teach Us about Presence, Strength and Awareness, has just announced the 3rd Annual Coaching with Horses Retreat and Conference.
Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching, often abbreviated EFLC, is based in the belief that the intuitive and sentient nature of Horse gives them an innate ability to help people connect to their most authentic selves. Horses are highly influenced by the subtle, nearly imperceptible changes in body language, mental state and feelings within humans, enabling them to act as a mirror and give honest insights into the human psyche.

Kathy Pike and Coaching with Horses was featured in a wonderful article Horse Power – Learn about yourself through equine eyes in the May 2014 issue of Experience L!fe Magazine. New York writer and lifestyle expert Terri Trespicio visited Kathy at Moon Shadow Ranch and had some lovely things to say about the ranch, the horses and the inspiring work of Equine Facilitated Learning.
It is both an honor and a privilege to be bringing this important work out into the world. With three separate EFLC Certification programs currently in process, we are proud to be adding over 20 EFLC Faciltators to the world in 2014 alone.
