Founded in 2008, Horse Guided Empowerment® (also know as Empoderamiento con Caballos® ) is a unique method for motivating deep personal change in coaching and therapy sessions for groups, individuals and families.

Horses communicate through emotions and they are constantly scanning their environment for an energetic change. As social animals, they need authentic, congruent and predictable behavior in order to maintain harmony and safety in their herd. During our sessionsand retreats, the horses will reflect your emotions and serve as a canvas for hidden thoughts, patterns or early affirmations. They do not judge or manipulate us, and they can not be fooled by our masks as they react to the feelings behind our actions.

Christina Marz, family counselor, trauma specialist, and natural horsemanship expert, ​will ​supervise your self-reflection to help you learn what blocks or motivates you and where you can find support for positive change. The feedback provided by the horses comes with impressive images that are easy to remember and support your personal growth.​ ​

We offer individual and group sessions, company workshops, facilitator training, and retreats in stunning locations.
For more information please contact us. All activities will allow you to see horses in a life-changing way. Previous experience with horses is welcome but not necessary.
