Equi-ability was launched by Yvonne Goulding and Victoria Share at Your Horse Live in 2017. Yvonne is a proven leadership coach who brings her understanding of people to the partnership. Vicky is a qualified equine coach with over 20 years' experience. She also has qualifications in equine management, massage therapy, laser therapy and equine thermography. 

 

Our Reason For Being

  • We believe that humans have a responsibility to ensure that their horses are listened to, and that any training is done with kindness and thoughtfulness.

  • We believe that the human/equine partnership can truly create Power In Harmony when there is an open relationship which is based on respecting and understanding the horse’s natural instincts.

  • We believe that the horse should be calm and feel safe as the partnership develops and that how we communicate with them is fundamental.

  • We believe that our responsibility is to be consistent, giving clear boundaries in a way that the horse can understand, whilst always listening to them.

 

When in harmony, we see human and equine communicating effectively and adapting according to each other’s feedback. We also see excellent timing and feel from the human, and a horse that chooses to be part of that bond.

 

Our members have told us that they love the structure that equi-ability gives them, as well as being able to see the progress that they are making with their horse.

If the answers to any of these questions is YES, then joining equi-ability could help you :

  • Have things gone wrong that you dont know how to put right?

  • Does your horse seem to spook at everything?

  • Have you felt isolated and alone when it comes to your horse?

  • Are you unsure about what to do next with your horse?

  • Do you want to introduce new ideas or a new way of working with your horse?

  • Would you like to have recognition of your progress without needing to compete or travel?

  • Do you feel unfocused? 

 

equi-ability is open to all equines and all humans – there are very few rules, which are only in place for clarity or to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our members and their equine partners. There is no dress-code, other than a riding hat!

 

So, whether you have worked with horses for years or it’s a completely new adventure, whether you choose to ride or to focus on groundwork, whether you want to go fully tacked, headcollar or no tack at all,

 

Vicky and Yvonne welcome every one of you warmly.
