  • The Experience

    Many people are starting to take notice that horses are so much more than cherished family companions or an avenue for sport.  Horses are truly masterful at helping us build a bridge of awareness to our own patterns of behavior. We invite you to see for yourself.  The Equus Coaching® experience is a powerful hands-on learning environment which will allow you to viscerally witness the magic of returning home to being more fully yourself. LEARN MORE 

    Corporate Retreats

    The new business environment is marked by all the chaos and beauty of the natural world, so it’s not surprising that the leadership it calls for is shaped and informed by nature. This is likely why companies are increasingly turning to Equus Coaching® to hone the confidence, creativity and personal power of their leadership teams.

    • “Koelle Simpson is one of the most compassionate, intuitive, inherently wise people I’ve ever met. Her incredibly keen observation skills, her years of work with both animal and human students, and her skill as a teacher make her a one-of-a-kind resource to anyone who wants more self-understanding and communication skill. I’ve learned things from Koelle that have changed my life more than anything I picked up in the Ivy League, or from the thousands of pages I’ve read (and written).”

      Dr. Martha Beck – Best selling author & life coach

    • “The work of Equus Coaching has been so powerful and transformation for my own life. It’s nice that I can now integrate what I’ve learned on a deeper level by having the opportunity to share the learning with someone else.”

      Travis Stock – Equus Coach Master Facilitator

    • “This work helped me to recognize when I was forcing things, when I was trying not to be vulnerable or weak as a man in any way. It also gave me a powerful visceral awareness of when I was simply allowing myself to be authentic and transparent. I realize now that when I connect with a visceral place of authenticity with myself and allow others to witness me they feel more trusting and connected to me.”

      Richard Griffin – Equus Coach Master Facilitator in Training

    • “After an experience with Equus Coaching, I took the lessons back to my relationships at work. I started to allow myself to show up to connect with others in a more authentic way. I was blown away with how our usual ways of dialoging and interacting with one other immediately shifted. For me, this experience is profoundly different from other forms of therapy given in that it is a real-time practice and visceral measurement of how I’m actually feeling and how I’m actually showing up in a given moment. It’s been life changing.”

      Kit Weis – Equus Coach in Training

    • “Initially I felt a strange compulsion to experience this work for myself. Now I’m thrilled to be supporting the design and over all instruction of the Equus Coach Training. It’s remarkable to witness each student explore a deeper awareness of their own energetic patterns and transform their lives.”

      Jennifer Voss – Equus Coach Training Coordinator

    • “Equus Coaching enables us to share the magic and wisdom of horses with others. I love having an opportunity to facilitate this work and witness others embracing a moment of learning that allows them to grow from the inside out. I find this is a rare opportunity to connect with nature and the greater meaning of the universe.”

      Kasia Roether – Equus Coach Master Facilitator

    • “In one of my first Equus Coaching sessions, I discovered how tight and stressed I became when I tried to ask for something I wanted. It was obvious that I was struggling to embrace my value and allow myself to truly connect with something I wanted in my life. In that moment, I realized I wanted to sign up for the Equus Coach Training. I wanted to begin a new journey towards the relationship I was having with myself and learn to celebrate my own needs.”

      Susan Terry – Equus Coach in Training

    • “When I first signed up for this work, I was familiar with horses, but I didn’t really know what I was in for. I initially wasn’t so comfortable being the focus of attention and I tended to deflect on what might be happening for the horse. With the support of the Equus Coach, I was able to see that the horse was actually embodying an extension of myself. I was able to see how I was shaping and creating the events in my life. I now really appreciate a much richer sense of who I am.”

      Willow Vetch – Equus Coach Master Facilitator in Training

    • Donna Reed – Equus Coaching Client

    • “Equus Coaching offers us beautiful tools to go out and change the world one person at a time. This work has really helped me witness how I show up and what I bring to my relationships.  As a result, I’ve learned to see myself more clearly and I’m able to help support my clients and fellow Equus students in their own learning process.”
