Equine Connection exceeded my expectations once the course was completed through the theory and practicum. The knowledge received will enhance the services I already provide to children and adults. This course has changed how I interpret what my horse is saying and how to effectively keep the horse safe. Anyone who wants to go into this form of skill building would greatly benefit from this course.

Wow, what a certification training. Well worth every penny - especially the Clydesdale package. I feel prepared, and ready to get going. Most importantly, is the Business Package, this package gives you everything to get you started.

A month ago, I had the privilege of joining the Equine Connection's herd, marking the start of my journey with Equine Assisted Learning. Already, I can witness the transformative effects when working with horses. While I've been around horses my entire life, pursuing certification has taken my relationship with them to new heights. I am eager to share this profound experience with others and assist in human growth through the profound connection with these majestic beings. The support from the Equine Connection's family is awe-inspiring, and the wealth of information provided to us is truly remarkable. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

I have never in my life experienced such caring and thoughtful facilitators. Even on my own personal battles, I was able to reach out and had them behind me the whole way, pushing me to keep my confidence! I did it, but I won't lie, I could not have done it without Carolyn and her constant support.

I could not believe all that was included when I received my certification! I literately ( NO JOKE) got a whole business in a box - PLUS the ongoing support, for over 2 years now, has been absolutely second to none!!! I hold so much respect and gratitude for Equine Connection Academy, Kari, Carolyn, Karsyn with their down to earth professionalism, that is all wrapped up in integrity, morals, sincerity and genuine caring!! I took my certification in 2021 and now going into my second year I am beyond excited at all the connections I'm making and the financial assistance it is generating towards creating our dream ranch. I have been blessed at the many doors opening to offer the Amazing Equine Connection EAL programs to the youth in our community, and I cannot believe how much pride I feel everyday that I can help make a difference in their lives, in their families and in our community. I could not do this if it wasn't for my certification! If your hesitating, take this as your sign, CALL Equine Connections ask away, they are waiting to help you succeed, sign up as they are waiting to assist you in achieving your dreams, your future.

I have to say I made the right choice when I was researching what path I wanted to go down, I was looking into a few different options for the FEEL and EAL Programs. When I reached out to equine connections, the women were very welcoming, supportive and well happy people to speak with. I decided to take the certification through Equine Connection and I am so glad that I did. the ongoing support and the fact that they share every piece of business and information with the participants is hands down the BEST they are always there when we need them. Thank you so much Carolyn and Kari!

Becoming a certified Equine Connections facilitator has done nothing but good things for me. It's given me the confidence and feeling of empowerment to begin my own EAL journey so more humans can discover the healing power of horses, all while being surrounded by a family of likeminded individuals who also have the same goal! Kari and Carolyn are always there for you to answer any questions or offer any help you may need! 5/5 easily! Thank you for all you do guys!

I took the virtual certification course from Equine Connection, and it was truly amazing. There is so much information packed into this course, delivered by energetic facilitators that have a huge genuine passion for what they are doing. The course truly covers everything that you need to provide you with the opportunity to become successful in starting your own business. Researched and scientific evidence learning about how your horse communicates with you and the reason they are the best teachers, how to set up and facilitate the programs, and the most valuable aspect, is the support and business package that provides everything Kari and Carolyn have learned about building a successful business. I had checked out three different courses and chose this course because of the ongoing support that is provided to ensure that you can duplicate their success. Learning about a subject is one thing, learning to put it into practice is another thing, however, turning your dream or what you have learned into a successful business is the greatest challenge of all.

The parallels between humans and horses are uncanny.

A horse is a prey animal and the most vulnerable of beings, as their #1 concern is to feel SAFE, and that only comes from a connection within a herd. Humans, like horses, are social animals. We need one another. We must come together to restore and discover trust and build resilience - all through working with the horse's power. A horse cannot judge and lie and can empower people to help themselves. That's why our curriculum is designed to help people reconnect with themselves and find ways of re-establishing the joys and well-being in their lives.
