Equinection offers life-changing programs to help people live more fulfilling lives by realizing their intrinsic gifts of strength, wisdom, and peace. The programs and its gifted teacher guide and inspire participants to deepen self-awareness through interaction with horses.

Using time-tested horse-facilitated learning, Equinection offers programs for people who are committed to personal growth and living more meaningful lives. The grace offered from a horse serves as a catalyst for self-discovery, and the tailored programs help people uncover their innate strengths, improve their relationships, bring out the best in themselves and others, and live the life they envision. Founded by teacher and motivational speaker Karen Head, Equinection is nestled among the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, where the beauty, serenity and privacy of the 112-acre farm are conducive to reflection and insight.

A unique educational opportunity, the lessons learned at Equinection continue to unfold long after leaving this peaceful, mountain retreat. All programs are available by reservation.
