I will teach YOU to partner with horses

Together, we can create a high impact offer that changes the lives of your clients, is loved by your horses, and supports your holistic lifestyle.


Large organizations such as Price Waterhouse Coopers, Nestlé, ChevyPlan and Kantar utilize the Horse Guided Empowerment® model by Christina Marz in their training processes, because it quickly and reliably helps increase self-knowledge, mutual respect, and trust among members of the team.

As a horse lover, you know how empowering and healing it is to be around these amazingly sensitive animals. 

What if you could learn to facilitate sessions for individuals, groups, families and even companies that would connect then with the equine energy?

Imagine they could learn to regulate their emotions for a more fulfilling life and you could generate an income with something you love?

Several scientific studies have shown that horses can read our intentions. People achieve better emotional and physical health when they share time with a calm herd. We will teach you evidence-based techniques to empower yourself and your clients.

In counseling or psychotherapy sessions with horses, it is not necessary to analyze the past in detail. The horses reveal the root of a blockage within a short time and together with the therapist they guide the client towards a practical solution. Through dynamic exercises and the direct response of the herd, your “Sense of Coherence” is restored, which is key to understanding complicated situations in both, personal life and professional environments.

Horse Guided Empowerment® facilitators are guided by the horse´s innate sensitivity. We work with several, unrestrained horses in a big paddock. It is here and with help from the herd, that we initiate the process of personal growth, resolve traumatic stress, enhance team development and work out couple and family issues. The connection with the true nature of the horse is essential for the success of the session as it opens new perspectives which lead to deep and lasting changes.

Clients do not need to have previous experience with horses. All (non-aggressive) horses are suitable for this method, but established herds get the best results. The safety and well-being of both clients and horses are our highest priorities.

Included in the Facilitator Training: 

Live Mentoring, 15+ hours of video training, 2 guide books, the complete manual of Horse Guided Empowerment, a student workbook, dozens of case studies, all our activities, and a neatly organized virtual classroom
