Kari is the founder and one of the world's leading instructors in the Equine-Assisted Learning Certification Course. She helps others become competent as Equine Assisted Learning facilitators and to run their own successful horse businesses to make a living and, most importantly, to find their purpose on this precious earth.
Kari started the Equine Connection in January 2009 as a response to her passion for horses and people. She has always been interested in helping others reach their dreams and goals. As a Million Dollar Weekenders sales manager, she helped women empower themselves to find their voice and courage to create the life they wanted. As a motivational speaker, I encouraged people to maintain a great attitude every day! People forget that they have a short time on earth, so we have to live it now and not down the road. And as a manager at the Strathmore Stampede, the third-largest rodeo in Canada, she led and managed a team of over 700 volunteers!
Kari's love for horses and people has brought this certification to life, helps participants create lasting change in themselves and take the learning from the horse into their own lives. She is a horsewoman who believes in the connection between horses and humans and the power of these magnificent creatures to help us humans in this hard life. She started out her career working with horses in their language instead of the human language, which has changed how she interacts with them. Horses are prey animals, and they need to feel safe in order to trust humans. She understands this and seeks continuous learning and training to understand horses through this connection better. Kari believes in this investment to continue her journey and development of the horse world because she knows it is crucial for horses and people alike.
Kari lives just outside of Carseland, AB with a view of the Rocky Mountains just outside of the Calgary, AB area. Her better half and wonderful man is Sid Chadwick who has helped build and support her through this purposeful career since 1998. She has three daughters whom she has always said has been her greatest joy, and accomplishment in this short little life!
Kari’s philosophy for everyone who trains with her that she is not successful until you are! Her motto is "If It's Not Hard It's Not Your Dream."
She written a book called 'Two Weeks to Empowerment,' which features an intensive online course to help women to be empowered. She also has her book called 'If It's Not Hard It's Not Your Dream,' a biography of triumph over adversity and so much loss that she went through in her own journey of creating her dream career.
