"This experience was a huge success for our team. We each came to the program with different intentions and expectations. Some had hesitations, some were excited, while others simply remained open - but we all walked away changed. Kasia and Jutta guided the experience so elegantly and created an interactive learning experience that was safe both emotionally and physically. The horses were lovely and brought so much joy and healing with just their mere presence. This was a much needed space and time for our team. We can't thank Life Coaching with Horses enough!" 

 

Amanda Curaza, Executive Director of Operation Surf

 

"Thank you Kasia and Jutta! This was such a beautiful day and experience. Thank you for your time and warm hospitality with our group. Mahalo."

"I have now had the privilege of attending two of the Life Coaching with Horses experiences with Kasia and Jutta.  The opportunity for team building is huge but it is also a relaxing place to really disconnect from work and learn from the behavior of the horses.  The experience has long-lasting effects and you will find yourself reflecting back on it for days!"

Susan Lamont, Chief Program Officer, Interim

"... thanks so much for giving me the opportunity for a most fulfilling and uplifting experience. What I got out of this was way more than I expected and opened my eyes to a whole new world of understanding, connecting, thinking, and appreciating many aspects of life, who we touch and who touches us, not to mention how much of this comes from these magnificent animals. I left with a feeling of comfort, joy, peace and so much more knowledge about horses than I ever imagined. Coming from zero exposure to these creatures, that says a lot.
I can't say enough about the great job Kasia, Jutta, and their team do in putting together this very meaningful and thoughtful experience. It is clear this is a labor of love for them."

"Our Leadership Team thoroughly enjoyed the Equine Experience. As a newer team created out of a merger, we were seeking an opportunity to strengthen our bonds and build trust. Not only did we achieve both of those goals, but we also greatly benefited from the healing powers of being outside in nature with each other and with the horses. Kasia, Jutta, and their entire team were professional, accessible, and created a safe environment, both physically and emotionally. I would highly recommend the Equine Experience to any team in need of connection, rejuvenation, or just good old-fashioned fun!"

Jennifer Adams, CEO

What an amazing experience. I didn't know how much I needed yesterday afternoon. Thank you Jutta, Kasia and the two other facilitators who joined us. It was magical!

Angela Smith, Director of Housing Services

"I had a truly wonderful experience working with you and the horses. It helped me to see how many stories there are to any given situation and how I often too quickly write a negative story. The awareness of this habit is so important. I loved bonding with new staff members and sharing a relaxing experience outside together. Even the drive to and from was fun to connect with staff members and reflect on our adventures throughout the day. 

Thank you so much Kasia and Jutta. The work you are doing is very special and I feel honored I got to experience it. I hope many more thousands of people also get to experience it. 

Take care and thank you for what you do in this world."

“The end of life doula team at Hospice of San Luis Obispo County had a wonderful equine experience at the ranch. The horses were so calm and comforting and the life coaches provided a safe space to explore our energy and emotions. Each Doula had an opportunity for an individual experience connecting with a horse and life coach and then in small groups, we explored communication and teamwork. It was profoundly empowering, grounding, and enlightening. We are deeply grateful to the team at Life Coaching with Horses and look forward to future collaborations.”

 

Shannon McOuat, Executive Director and End of Life Doula

"Friday was an amazing and wonderfully healing blessing" 

 Lisa Majors, President, Founder and CEO of Resilient Souls

"Thank you so much for the wonderful day"  

  Gail Kania, participant.

"From the moment my son and daughter and I turned into the property and began slowly driving back to our meeting area for our group's life coaching session and graduation with Life Coaching with Horses in Paso Robles, calm and wonder already began to wash over us as we took in the peaceful beauty of the place before we had even parked our car.

 

The facilitators, Kasia Roether and Jutta Thoerner, thoughtfully took our group through each stage of the program they designed for us, as each step transitions beautifully into the next. For me, the highlight was being with the horses and gently taking their "gifts" to us from their manes. Rejection is something we are challenged to overcome the pain of with grace every day. One horse was alone by himself while all the others were together at the back of the corral.  Danny was his name. The way he was alone, I immediately connected with him. Spending that time loving on Danny, hugging and petting him, talking to him seems such a simple thing but they were moments so healing and comforting the way I believe God provides for as one of the ways for the human-animal connection to be.

I definitely recommend the wonderful opportunities for insight, calm, healing, hope and more discovered through Kasia and Jutta's beautiful equine experience."
