HEART AND MIND EQUINE
In our sessions, clients join with our unique herd of sensitive horses who are adept at helping people learn about relationships, communication and sensitivity. We offer Equine Assisted Growth and Learning for individuals, families, couples, and teams. Whether equine assisted psychotherapy or equine assisted learning, we are an EAGALA-model practice, certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association.
Our clients are youth and their families, couples, people in recovery, trauma survivors, and businesses seeking a unique opportunity to change relationship dynamics and heighten communication skills. We offer workshops for highly sensitive people (20% of the population with the innate trait Sensory Processing Sensitivity) who experience their own sensitivity in a new and deeper way. Sensitivity can also be heightened when families experience life transitions or trauma, such as starting a new school or new relationship, divorce, illness, or moving.
We begin our sessions outside the fence with observations, moving into the corral, and getting up close and personal with the horses at each individual’s own pace. Interacting with horses provides the opportunity to gain fresh, honest awareness of our truths. Unlike so many people, horses have no agenda, and they don’t care about our power, position, title, degree, or salary. Learning to use your mental focus with clarity and clear boundaries to direct a 1000 pound horse gives clients a shortcut to self-confidence and a sense of personal power.
Our facilitators are certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association or EAGALA. Alane Freund, MS, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Monica Zimmerman, CPC, is our certified Equine Specialist.

HSPs and Horses Weekend Retreats*
Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) will join four to six horses on the ground (not riding) who are specially trained for this work. The human team from Heart and Mind Equine is EAGALA certified and endorsed by Dr. Elaine Aron. Developed with Elaine Aron, Ph.D., HSPs and Horses is a sweet and intimate retreat with a small group (about six participants) highly sensitive people. Our four HSP human staff and amazing herd of HSH (highly sensitive horses) will nurture you and teach you and guide you in this journey of self-care and discovery. Whether you have newly identified your high sensitivity or have known who you were for decades, you will be touched by these sensitive rescue horses for whom sensitivity is a valuable asset, who use their sensitivity to communicate with tremendous integrity and clear boundaries. You will join the herd in our peaceful, bucolic natural setting and sink deeply in the kind of self-care that will stay with you for days, weeks and months in the future. $885 includes herd fees, shuttle and lunch/snacks. A list of nearby accommodations is available to help with your travel plans. Read more about our workshops here. *Continuing education credits available.
HSPs and Horses: Deepening into Ourselves*
A Heart and Mind Equine Level 2 Workshop for clients who have worked with our herd through past programs. Join Dr. Elaine Aron, Alane Freund, and the Heart and Mind Equine team to deepen our journey of healing, empowerment, exploration, and self-care under the guidance of our mentor and with the support of our herd. This weekend will include a half-hour private one on one with Dr. Aron for each participant. Includes herd fees, shuttle and lunch/snacks. A list of nearby accommodations is available to help with your travel plans. $885
GRACEFUL BOUNDARIES; Ranking and Linking in Relationships and Communication
Are you a person or do you know people who: Have trouble saying NO? Keeping boundaries? Feeling one down too often? THIS WORKSHOP WILL HELP YOU FIX THAT! This equine assisted workshop explores the dynamics of power in relationships and communication. Working through the rough edges of vulnerability, we master advanced skills of transforming shyness and low self-esteem into personal power and authenticity, of learning when to lean in toward intimacy and “linking” and when to establish leadership or “rank”. Horses offer us a shortcut to social and emotional mastery through tapping their vast resources of nonverbal intelligence and innate leadership skills. $885 (*CE avail.)
HSPs and Horses: Empowerment Series*
Heart and Mind Equine invites you to enroll in the private HSP Empowerment Series, a year-long, individualized program including attending one HSPs and Horses workshop (per year), 12 private sessions (just you, the horses, and the Heart and Mind human team,) and 12 phone sessions. This series can be individually tailored to help you feel more empowered by your sensitivity in the areas you choose, such as relationships, boundaries, career, communication, personal power, self-care, and personal growth. Empowerment Series offers clients flexibility in scheduling and additional sessions at reduced fees. (Some clients might accelerate their year and make it more intensive for example.) Each equine session will include 2-4 HSHs (horses) as well as two human facilitators: Heart and Mind’s EAGALA certified Mental Health Specialist and Equine Specialist. Request more information and register by contacting the H&ME team at email@example.com. Not sure if the whole series is for you? Try one half-price private session, and if you so choose, you may apply your first session to the whole series. (*CE available) $4800
