Equine-Guided Awareness


At IdyleWild Farm
What is Equine-Guided Awareness?
Equine-Guided Awareness (EGA) offers a unique opportunity for individuals and groups to learn about themselves by interacting with horses. EGA is experiential in nature and requires participants to operate from a horse's point of view. As such, equine-guided activities provide participants with fresh perspectives on their own actions and interactions. The result is heightened self-awareness, an ability to distinguish limiting thoughts and behaviors, and renewed levels of confidence to face change and the unknown. In short, Equine-Guided Awareness presents human beings with endless possibilities for self-reflection, realization, and transformation.

Why Horses?

IdyleWild's offerings in Equine-Guided Awareness are founded on the knowledge that horses are, by nature, therapeutic - emotionally, psychologically, and physically. They are kind, gentle, forgiving, and strong. They have a way of touching our souls, mending our hearts, and healing our pain. The realm of the horse is a realm that is free of judgment or pretense. Horses are authentic in their being, honest in their communication, and present in every moment. When we open ourselves to them, they show us how to be the same. Horses teach us how to be better people, as individuals and to each other


When we watch and when we listen, horses will always lead us back to a place where we can see things as they are and as they should be. Through their size and strength, horses empower and inspire. Through their gentle and forgiving nature, horses fill human hearts with love. Through a spirit that has accompanied human beings for more than 5000 years, horses open doors to freedoms once unknown. If you watch and listen, horses will show you the way to your authentic self.

“Everybody has a story to tell.
Some just don't know where to start."

~ Diamond Diva Shirelle Hogans,

Shirelle Hogans (“Diamond”) has a passion for empowering women to overcome past hurts and pursue their dreams. Diamond’s mission and her message are simple and clear: Every woman is a diamond and deserves to be treated like the jewel that she is.
