Frequently Asked Questions
How much time per week will I need to learn this material and practice with my horses each week?
A minimum of six hours a week is needed to watch all of the tutorials and finish each weekly module and the exercises provided. Most students are so excited to learn this new way of being with horses and guiding others through equine-based learning sessions that they spend additional time each week deepening into the work.
How many people are in your program? With the surge of online programs taking over the marketplace, it is not uncommon to sign up for a program and realize you have joined hundreds, if not thousands, of participants. Kathy does not believe this is the best learning format for a professional training program of this nature. She feels a smaller group of individuals with in-depth conversations honors the teachings of horses at a more substantial level. Her live calls typically have 5-12 people per call, and all questions or concerns are address. The personal live time with Kathy is a crucial part of the learning process. At no time will she water this down the program’s quality by adding more students than allows for the in-depth learning she currently provides.
How is The Coaching with Horses: Emotional Intelligence and Energy Mastery – (EFLC Level One) professional training program different than other programs?
Honestly? We don’t know. Kathy has spent the last 30 years of her life developing her unique style guided by her herd of horses. She has written three books that share her passion for advocating equine intelligence (Hope from the Heart of Horses, Horse Spirits Speak, and her most recent, Life Lessons from the Heart of Horses). She offers a profoundly spiritual approach and teaches her students to see beyond what is presented and tune into their intuition and understanding of energy patterns between horses and humans.
Kathy’s philosophy on the concept of comparison is that an individual loses vital life force energy when approaching a decision-making process of this nature from a comparison mindset. The invitation is one of energy, and you must determine if you have an energetic resonance with her teachings. The invitation is to listen to your heart and the energy ignited within you as you call in your next mentor, teacher, or guide. A true teacher empowers and guides you along with providing proven structures, methods, and processes. The EFLC program has developed for eighteen years as Kathy has traveled the globe teaching. The process and deeper learning levels happen as she guides you to integrate them into your way of life.
What is included in the program? You will learn about the structure and contents of the EFLC Level One professional training program during your coaching call with Kathy. Promptly after the call, the information is emailed to you.
I am in the information gathering process. Shall I go through the application process now to hold my sport for a later time? You may go through the application process at any time. However, Kathy does not hold spots in her program for possible future enrollment. She invests all of her energy with students who enroll to ensure the highest return on their investment.
Will I have to decide if I want to work with Kathy and enter the Level One program on the call? You will have two days after the call to make your decision. Kathy does not want to push anyone into making a decision and understands some people need time to process after a call with her.
Does Kathy do one-off sessions? Kathy offers one-off coaching sessions based on moving and clearing any limiting or conditioned energy, aligning the client back to their true values and authentic self, and supporting them with any mentoring needs. Her fee for one-off sessions is $350.
Should I apply even though I can’t currently afford the investment? It is entirely up to you. A call with Kathy always brings greater clarity and alignment to her clients as she functions as a mirror and conduit for change during the conversation. It is not uncommon for individuals to suddenly find or be gifted tuition monies from other streams other than their own.
I am intimidated and feel a mixture of fear, vulnerability, and nervousness just reading this page and considering a conversation with Kathy. Should I proceed forward? It is not uncommon for individuals to experience this before speaking with Kathy. Kathy is dedicated to helping people on their path with horses and offers a spiritual approach. A conversation with Kathy often can entail positive change and energetically opening. Being a little nervous is normal. This way of working with horses can be a type of initiation, a new way of walking through life and being in this world, a way that is based on horse wisdom. Before this happens, people often feel nervous, excited, scared, or vulnerable.
What if I am already a seasoned equine learning facilitator? Many individuals who have studied other modalities such as EAGALA attend the EFLC Level One to gain body-centered coaching skills along with key pieces such as creating safe containers, respecting the true nature of horses, and tapping deeply into intuition as a facilitator and coach. Kathy is a teacher for teachers and a coach for coaches. Take what you learn in the online Coaching with Horses: Emotional Intelligence and Energy Mastery – (EFLC Level One) and your sessions will transform in ways you never expected.
How will the program change my relationship with my horse? The foundation for being a good coach and facilitator for others is doing one’s own exploration of energy and emotions with horses. Your horse becomes your teacher and masterful coach. As you practice the tools to deepen your presence, connection, and communication new experiences and realizations emerge. During the first four weeks of the course, there is a strong emphasis on you taking your relationship with your horses to an entirely new level, regardless of how much work you have already done with them. Students report how deeply the relationship with their horses becomes and that they receive much more than they anticipated by following the guidance that Kathy provides.
What if I am new to this body of work? This course will help you to learn the steps, safety protocols, and build your confidence to step into this work. You will leave with great clarity about your path with horses and also gain personal development along the way. Be ready to develop your energy and emotional intelligence as you guide others with horses. And most of all be ready to learn and walk the way of the horse in a more authentic exchange of energy.

“I am LOVING the Online EFLC course … the breadth and depth of the material are brilliant! I’ve done countless online courses and seminars and wanted to let you know how beautifully this is being presented. So rich and full. Thank you for this offering – feeling incredibly grateful to be with you on this path!” Toni Harris, Canada
“Kathy’s extraordinary course has opened my entire being to a whole new understanding of the nature of this reality and her offerings have expanded my awareness way beyond what I was once conditioned to believe were possible. Kathy’s profound teachings allowed me to connect much deeper to my intuition and become aligned and in tune with the radiant heart energy of my glorious herd and the harmonious wisdom they share. The Coaching with Horses journey empowered me to hone the craft of recognizing and liberating old patterns of energy that inhibit our capacity to evolve and blossomed my ability to be enlightened to all that surrounds me. This course is a powerful life tool for everyone and anyone who intends to dive deeper into presence and the bountiful space that living from pure, authentic awareness creates. I am forever in awe of, grateful for, and truly humbled by my journey with Kathy and feel endlessly honored to be in service to the whole, that is the Divine Collective Herd.” With Metta, Nicola Robinson Evans, Evolve Sanctuary, Australia
“While applying Kathy’s methods with my horses, I shifted from numbing out difficult emotions to instead move through them and gain an entirely new level of emotional intelligence. Now that I have gone deeper into my own spiritual exploration with horses, I feel congruent and confident in leading others. I thought I was a very present person, the horses taught me how to go even further into presence and create a genuinely emotionally safe container for others. This program solidified my power as a healer, animal communicator, and EFL instructor.” Anna Marie Ellison, USA
“This online course was a lifesaver for me. We have a bustling lesson barn that I rarely have a chance to escape from for any length of time longer than a quick trip to a grocery store! The Level One training program gave me the tools, process, support, outline, and philosophy to feel confident and well prepared as I enter each new client session. I am now able to tailor each session to meet the needs of the client and their specific requests for change, enlightenment, or growth. My non-profit, called The Equine Academy Inc. is the home for this incredible work. I feel good and pleased that I took the course.” Jane Salko, Southport, CT
“The Online Level One and Level Two training programs have been a great experience. I have gained many tools to coach others with horses. I had to work hard on my vulnerability and feeling exposed speaking, as English is my second language. Just thinking about it made me nervous. Little by little, I gained more security and confidence on the live calls. I grew a tremendous amount in this process. The fact that it was online made me practice with my horses. My relationship with my horses drastically changed as they are now stepping into being teachers. I love this course because I can go back to the online modules and watch all of the tutorials and keep learning. My thanks to Kathy and the whole group of fantastic women with whom I shared the program.” Carme Comellas, Spain, carmecomellas.com
“This program is exactly what I needed on my transformative journey with horses. Kathy has helped me accept my vulnerability and become more authentic. This also allowed me to develop and trust my intuition with horses thus creating a deeper partnership with them when facilitating coaching sessions with people. When doing so, I am in a spiritual zone that feels like home.” Natasha Vanoye, Belgium
Kathy has provided me with tools of staying present in the moment or consciousness that has changed my life and will continue to change my life. It hasn’t only changed the way I ride and am around horses but in every other way in my life, whether it is with people or other animals. It is surprising how much less energy I use when I am present. I feel as though a piece to the puzzle of my wholeness has been filled. I will forever be grateful for the gift you have given me. Thank you.” – Michelle Q., Cohuna, Australia
|“My Level One training went beyond my expectations. During my Round Pen experience, Izzy allowed me to close a chapter in my life that needed to be closed. Through Kathy’s facilitation and Izzy’s Master Coaching, I now feel complete. The training also allowed me to grow as a coach, and I now have the Mind Body Method to add to my Coaching Toolbox. Thanks for an absolutely amazing experience.” – Anouschka, Canada|
|“After attending the EFLC Level One, I returned to The Netherlands, where I had various equi sessions planned with individuals and a big group. The Mind Body Method coaching model worked superb; it enriched my toolkit. It fits very well with my experience of being a systemic equi coach, and it makes my work, and very important the work of my horses, much easier and lighter.” – Tirza, The Netherlands|
