The story of the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching® is a story of transformation.

It is a story about the ancient bond that exists between people and horses.
It is a story about learning from the wisdom of nature.
It is a story about leadership, personal power and the way horses can teach us to live.

The Koelle Institute is a world-class training institute and international community of Equus Coaches dedicated to personal transformation, authentic leadership, and empowered living. We facilitate profound immersive experiences with horses to help individuals and institutions reconnect with their innate wisdom and gain a visceral awareness of the patterns that shape our lives and world. Founded in 2006 by Koelle Simpson, the Koelle Institute has been delivering life-changing personal development work and leading the Equus Coaching Movement for over 10 years.

In it’s delivery of a unique learning experience, the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching® focuses its efforts on four core values.


Core Value 1: Authentic Leadership

Workshop participants, individual clients, and Equus Coaching students are supported in re-connecting to who they really are beyond their fears of failure. They discover authentic leadership as a wise ever-evolving flow of information with the present moment.

Rather than striving in a competitive or approval seeking manner to rise to the top of any conceptual structure, they lead their own experience with a calm, connected, aware, empowered, and intuitive presence. They emanate a genuine energetic state of clarity and openness to what wants to happen and how to best use their unique gifts to serve the whole by maintaining their own personal alignment.



Core Value 2: Belonging

Workshop participants, individual clients, and Equus Coaching students are guided by horses beyond the limiting fear-based messages of our current social structure and back to their true essential nature. Nature models for us the way to be truly at home within our own experience of life.

This guidance returns human beings to a fuller appreciation for embracing all the diverse facets of themselves and thus becoming genuinely free to fulfill our highest nature – unlimited creativity!


Core Value 3: Personal Transformation

Individual clients, workshop participants, and Equus Coaching students are on a journey of discovery. A discovery that their external world is actually a self-portrait of their internal world.

Our daily internal dialog and the way we treat ourselves emanates the deep-seeded patterns that ripple into all the intricate dynamics of our lives. Once we embrace a new perspective of who we are, then we can become free to create a new sense of self. In this state of awareness, we will undergo a profound personal transformation that will impact every aspect of our daily lives.


Core Value 4: The Return to Your Original Language – the Language of Energy

Individual clients, workshop participants, and Equus Coaching students are seeking to return to their essential wisdom. This wisdom is found in the original language of energy. Life, and our personal experience of it, is literally formed and shaped from our emotional energy state. It is the universal expression that connects all things into a collective play of relational experience.

As each individual’s awareness returns to a felt-sense and conscious understanding of their own energy signature, they become free to co-create the life they yearn for. The work with horses allows us to demystify the language of energy. It returns us to a grounded, visceral, and personal relationship to our own creative power and the ever-evolving intelligence of life.

The Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching® is an education body designed to offer training, ongoing education, and community support for Equus Coaches and Equus Coach Master Facilitators. It will also offer personal development and corporate workshops for the general public wishing to experience Equus Coaching®.  Choose from the Koelle Institute’s three offerings below to find out more…
