What is Equine Facilitated Awareness??

Equine Experiential Learning (EEL), Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT), Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL), Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Facilitated Awareness (EFA). These are all the possible generic acronyms, so you can imagine how challenging it can be to concisely describe what it is horses partner with me to do? The goal in its simplest form of the alphabet soup listed above, is to help humans discover and become the best version of who they were created to be, or at least that is our goal when working with individuals or teams.


Safety, Integrity and Support to create the equine facilitated awareness experience each participant needs.

Safety - accomplished by creating a space where horses and humans feel comfortable, both physically and emotionally.

Integrity- to treat the humans and horses with respect, compassion and to make sure each have a voice in the process.

Support- sometimes with words and actions, other times with silence and stillness. Ascertaining what the individual needs in that moment.

Renée Adair

Eponaquest Riding Focused and
Power of the Herd Certified Instructor

As a child, Renée had horses. Like so many others who experienced the joy of horses in their youth, she left that behind to attend college and then start her career as a Certified Public Accountant. In 2010, she and her husband moved to a property where she had the opportunity to reconnect with her childhood love of horses. They signed her brother-in-law up with a local therapeutic riding center in 2011, and a whole new world of how horses help humans was opened.

In 2013, the pressure of having someone with a traumatic brain injury living with them caused her to start looking for a program to help the family cope. She found a program that completely changed her life.

The self-discovery and the change was so great, she decided she wanted to have the ability to pay it forward, so she embarked on the journey to become an Eponaquest instructor and received her certification in Shelley Rosenberg’s Riding Focused program and Linda Kohanov’s Power of the Herd program.

Renée enjoys partnering with horses to help people discover the person they were created to be.
