The team offers full service training and sales for an elite group of riders and horses at all levels who seek a tailored program to fulfill their highest potential.

The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM®)
Located by the Lower Detached 10 Stall Barn.
North Light Coaching
in EGCM is a unique and deeply effective form of personal growth and emotional healing. In this method, an EGCM-certified coach partners with horses, guiding clients through an exploratory process to identify what is causing pain or preventing success or happiness. Through interactions with the horse (experiential learning), clients are assisted resolving unfinished business, clearing the energy of emotional pain held in the body, and designing a positive future. No horse experience is needed and you will not ride the horses during coaching. EGCM is not psychotherapy and it can be used with or without a therapy program.
EGCM will be offered at Ohana Equestrian Preserve through a relationship with North Light Coaching, LLC. North Light Coaching clients are healing post-traumatic stress injuries, childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, and challenging family dynamics. NLC is a trauma-informed practice, serving military and civilian adults, couples, families, and teens.
