About Us

At Equine Reflections, our mission is to bring horses and humans into a cooperative relationship where intuitive exchanges inspire self-awareness, healing, and growth. We leverage the power of horses to help individuals, families, communities, and organizations thrive.

Horses are social animals who are naturally perceptive to emotional states and are able to give immediate feedback. Through this meaningful and experiential relationship, clients are able to make lasting changes. Our work is client-centered, solution-focused, and evidence-driven.
