3 months of mentorship and sharing of how to build and craft success in your equine based practice

This 3-month mentorship container will give you insight, guidance, mentorship in what it looks like to create a practice that is not only fulfilling in passion but also in the vision you have for your business.  It will give you the know-how to be able to build a sustainable practice around working with your fellow equine counterparts.

We were called to partner with horses because we felt and knew the power of this work. Passion led us to it and continues to inspire us, but passion doesn’t always breed success and empowerment of our vision with our practice.

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.

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.

The horses have been my gateway to success and fulfillment and can be for you as well.

I know how impactful this work can be. And I also know how overwhelming it is to develop something that speaks to both the impact of this work and supports our dreams of doing it full time, or in addition to what we have going on in our professional lives.

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!
— Margarita Romano
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!
