For women who are seeking to build confidence in their leadership with horses and success in their practice in partnership with their equine partners.

We are called to the path of horses because it speaks to our soul.

We are passionate about this work and how horses impact the lives of others.

And then….

We have to navigate the waters of building an equine practice, figuring out how to get clients, exploring if this space can support our lives and our passion with horses, along with building the confidence and the uniqueness of our work in a sea of other equine facilitators.

I was once where you are.

In 2006, I began my journey of stepping into the field of equine guided learning. I spent 3 years receiving certifications from a variety of experts in the field, excited about starting my own practice with these amazing equine partners by my side.

As a life-long horse lover and someone who had been in the equine industry, I was moved by finding a space with horses that empowered and honored both horse and human.

I also had this idea that my passion with horses and my joy in facilitation would be enough to guide my way.

I was wrong.

I spent the next 5 years figuring out how to establish myself in a field of growing facilitators, how to feel confident in what i did and how to build a business around my love of horses.

What we don’t often realize is that our visions and our expertise in our facilitation with horses needs to expand to our business that holds space for it.

Because if we don’t learn how to run or build a business and practice in this work, we are not going to be able to honor our purpose and pathway with it.

I spent the first 3 years, post certification training, facilitating out of other people's spaces, running a few workshops per year and doing a session here or there.

In 2012, I made the leap to running my own facility growing my herd from 1 horse to 5 and embarking on a path of building a business that would support my dreams of doing this work.

Over the last 6 years, I have gathered my tools in business development, honed my skills as an equine facilitator and built my business to a place where I am now running an 80-acre retreat facility. I sell out my retreats. I am supporting a herd of 21 equine partners, most of which are rescues and I am now training and mentoring other equine facilitators in building and empowering their own version of success in their practice.

I believe deeply in the power of this work, both for humans and for horses, and I am passionate about empowering other equine practitioners in developing and honing their skills in their business and in their leadership in their practice.


Why a membership circle?


Truth is we need help often in the continued building of our practice. I created a 3-month program to mentor other equine facilitators in their business and found that it didn’t feel like a good enough support system.

Successful business leaders and practitioners have help and support, either in hiring business mentors or finding a community of support to empower their goals and outcomes in their business.


Holding space for our business and the empowerment of it is as equal importance to our actual facilitation with our horses or horses we are facilitating with.

I created a membership circle to give ongoing support and mentorship in the building of our business for those that know they need help, accountability and support with their business and building of their equine practice, but are not in a place to invest in a business coach or big program.


How it works:

Each month you will receive:

Bi-weekly coaching calls to address your struggles and goals in your business, getting hands on support and mentorship from yours truly.

Monthly training videos that give beginning to advance business skills from filling your retreat, to identifying your ideal clients, to niching and where you are finding your biggest gaps and struggles in your practice.

Access to the full program and recordings of the Equine Guided Mentorship, a 3-month program, filled with valuable content of the most necessary tools and empowerment we need to build a successful practice.  This was a $597 USD investment for those that took it live.

A circle of like-minded women with similar goals and struggles than you to include support and empowerment during your path to building your practice.

Access to me as your coach and mentor for ongoing support in a private Facebook group.


For many of us, investing in our business is not something we can always afford and yet to really empower our vision in business we need support.

The membership circle was a way for me to give support to those that need it without the huge investment, finding a balance between giving you incredible amounts of value and support for a soft and easy investment for both yourself and your business.

Over the past few months I have had the honour of learning from Hillary and getting to know how incredibly talented she is. Hillary’s work with the horses is one of a kind. I have experienced other equine developmental work and Hillary’s approach is truly unique.
I also love how this apprenticeship has molded over time. I have been given the opportunity to understand how to run a similar business, how to gain clientele, and how to hold space for this type of work. I have really appreciate how open Hillary has been about letting me in on trade secrets. It has been a blast and I can see us continuing to work together in the future!

Having gone through the facilitator certification and now having worked with my horses in this new capacity and seen, felt, and heard the positive impact; I can confidently say without a doubt that this work is necessary to this world today. Horses are genuinely authentic teachers that have much wisdom to reveal to the human race. This incredible program has not only allowed me to live my purpose, but more importantly it has made me believe and own my capacity to do so. It opened up for me the world of the horse in a way that I feel privileged and honoured to share with others. With my entire heart and soul, thank YOU!

Hillary has been a pleasure to work with and so supportive. She appreciates my unique style and I believe we work very well together. I would say that we make a great team and bring out each other’s strengths. Hillary is an extremely strong coach and facilitator and I have learned so much from her over the past few months. I would highly recommend Hillary to anyone looking for a coach. This work is transformational!
