Guided Tabletop Healing with Horses

with Wendy Golding & Andre Leclipteux of
Horse Spirit Connections


This is magic!  It is energy healing by a horse or horses.

Some horses have chosen to work with humanity in this powerful healing modality. Horses both physically and emotionally have a higher vibrational frequency. When we are in this place of higher vibration, our human hearts and bodies entrain this frequency and our lower stuck energy starts to flow.  Horses ‘see’ electromagnetic energy fields and meridians, and will focus on anything discordant, helping our bodies to come back into harmony. 

We will ask for a participant to lie on a healing table and invite the horse to tune and heal them.  Horses are sentient beings with intelligence beyond our comprehension. We will demonstrate how to create a sacred space that allows for intentionality and focus from both humans and horses to elevate the vibrational frequencies to balance energy blockages for the client.

Learn how as Facilitators we have a key role to play in this interchange between horse and human.

Together, we'll experiene these benefits:

  • Better understanding of the horses’ healing capacity
  • How to create sacred space for deeper healing and connection to occur
  • Develop facilitation skills to enhance multiple levels of awareness
  • Deeper spiritual connection with yourself and the horses
  • How to engage the herd
  • Know what your clients may experience

Join in to explore ways to add this type of healing partnership to your equine-healing practice!

sdWendy Golding weaves together her love of horses, spiritual healing and leadership while creating a sacred place where healing and learning takes place on all levels for horses and people alike.  Horses respond to the special energy found at their farm and fulfill their potential as teachers. They are treated as equal partners in a beautiful dance of healing where people find a deeper connection to their hearts and authentic selves.

Being passionate about horses all her life, Wendy took up riding again in her thirties and joined the Governor General’s Horse Guards in Toronto, where she participated in the precision riding of military parades and the grace of musical rides. She loved the thrill of galloping down a field, sword at the ready, piercing a target and raising it high in triumph!  Wendy went on to play the noble sport of polo, experiencing that incredible trust that exists between horse and rider, in mutual partnership. 

After a bad fall and serious injury to her neck, Wendy sought another way to express her passion for life and stay connected to horses.  Shamanism was part of the answer. Wendy learned the interconnectedness of all things and a way of seeing from the heart for the purpose of accessing spiritual guidance.  After studying with inspirational teachers for twelve years, Wendy is a Shamanic Coach and Practitioner, guiding others in fostering a deeper connection and relationship with nature and self.

Combining this healing modality with the wisdom of the horse opened a new world.  Wendy was thrilled to discover the Epona Approach and Linda Kohanov.  After experiencing first hand the powerful teachings from Linda and Kathleen Ingram, she knew that this was the magic she wanted to provide the world. Becoming an Epona Instructor she initiated a life long journey of service and joy.

Many thanks and gratitude goes to her life and business partner Andre Leclipteux, who has provided unstinting support on her journey. Together they founded Horse Spirit Connections located outside Toronto, Canada.
This not-for-profit corporation supports Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL) services and programs including transformational personal development workshops for people of all ages, and the Spirit of Leadership program for organizations and corporations.  We are honoured to provide a six month FEEL Facilitator Certification training program.  This training program is ideal for coaches, educators, facilitators, equestrians, therapists, and other individuals who are looking for practical training and experience in developing FEEL programs where the horse is valued for their role as a therapist and teacher.  

Following a deeper spiritual calling, Wendy and Andre developed the Wisdom Circle program for individuals seeking truth in the mystery of life.  It offers an opportunity to expand personal potential through the ancient teachings, ceremonies, and healing practices passed down from the wisdom of the indigenous peoples of North and Central America together with the powerful medicine of horses.

Our goal is to FEEL the experience of the majestic horse that whispers to us about our ability to communicate with others effectively and to listen to ourselves authentically.
