Workshops & Events

At Heartwood Equine Connections sessions are held in a safe non-threatening environment. All exercises are done on the ground. There is no riding in the counselling sessions or the workshops. No experience with horses is required or necessary.

Sessions with the facilitator and horse will enable clients to know themselves better. Awareness is the first step towards change and new possibilities for healing and empowerment are possible.

All sessions take place on the ground. The environment is safe. All sessions are experiential, consisting of various exercises with the horse.

Clients are invited to reconnect with their soul and to reawaken their spirit through the wisdom of the horse.

2022 was an eventful season of 6 workshops involving clients from WRRC, and numerous amazing women from London, Strathroy, Sarnia, Tillsonburg, Woodstock, and Sault Ste Marie. Congratulations to all these women for their courage and willingness to open their hearts to healing.

Workshops for 2024

Heartwood is continuing to offer Equine Facilitated workshops for the 2024 season.

Our first workshop is scheduled for Wednesday and Friday, May 29th and 31st. As with all our workshops, there is no cost to participate but each person who attends is asked to donate. The amount of the donation is their choice. Our workshop focus continues to be assisting women who have experienced abuse to gain self-worth, confidence and boundary-setting skills. Each workshop involves safe activities with horses.

For more information please email Lynne at

We offer individual sessions and 2-day
