Jane Strong from Equus effect and John Bourges Jane Strong, SEP, ESMHL Executive Director Co-founder and Lead Facilitator Eponaquest Equine Experiential Learning Instructor PATH, Intl. Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner Certified Enneagram Teacher  Jane began her lifelong love of horses as a competitive rider. When she left the world of traditional horsemanship behind, she had no idea that horses would ever become an integral part of her life again. It was not until she began to study the principles and practices of natural horsemanship that she came to understand what horses had to teach us about how we come across to others, about being in the moment and how to bring out the best in ourselves.  Read More about Jane I've worked in this way with horses for the past 10 years. Because horses engage all of our senses and ask us to be as present as they are, they can help people discover new ways of seeing themselves in relation to others. This work is both serious and fun, energizing and relaxing, easy to understand and deeply meaningful. By teaching us to stay present in the face of change, horses can help us develop our capacity to navigate transitions from one phase of life to another faster than any other mode of experiential learning or treatment I know. They invite the deepest, most honorable part of ourselves to come forward and meet life on life's terms.
