Our Personal Discovery Workshops

You, Your Relationship & Horses - 3- Day Workshop

A transformative journey, exploring the realms of tantra, sexuality, communication, relationship dynamics, and horses.  Tantra originates from the Sanskrit word "tanoti" (expansion) and "trayati" (liberation), signifying energy release and consciousness.

The connection we share with horses is unparalleled; they act as a bridge between wildness and domestication, expanding our minds and liberating our souls. These magnificent beings establish profound bonds, offering themselves as unwavering witnesses to the human experience. Horses, tactile creatures by nature, derive security from touch, a vital component for fostering bonds and providing social support. Our four-legged friends act as an exceptional intermediary, facilitating exploration of our interpersonal connections among humans.  They serve as open-hearted, unbiased mediators, enabling profound bonding and genuine connection.  In this miraculous partnership, horses, with their distinct worldview, join humans, fostering trust and a special form of communication. 

Embodying this here and now experience, thoughts and conditioning are shed, allowing trust in our bodies and alignment with the present. As we trust ourselves, a space for stillness and empathetic dialogue unfolds. Intimacy, trust and conscious awareness transforms actions and behaviours, enriching relationships with our loved ones.

Participate in this Workshop and foster trust, alignment, vulnerability, authenticity, and identify new paths to transformative relationships.

EPONAQUEST - Journey with Horses

Journey with Horses - a quite moment of connection

The emphasis is on learning to thrive, expanding both human and animal potential. In these EPONAQUEST educational programmes horses assist in teaching people leadership, assertiveness, personal empowerment, relationship, intuition, emotional agility and inter-subjective relationship skills.

Certified EPONAQUEST Professional and Riding Focused Instructor Rosemary Wyndham-Jones offers educational programmes where people and horses are supported in co-creating a new way of being - one that embraces authenticity, collaboration and experimentation.

Designed to immerse into nature and experience a connection, reflection and transformation - an experiential learning journey guided by the horse.

EPONAQUEST - Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders

Leadership working things out

Hands on, innovative leadership training. Practice defining roles and performance skills, have success with difficult conversation and develop leadership presence. Let the horse show you what's working - let the horse show you what's not working.

I am excited to be able to bring this personal/professional development workshop to you, as I know, how personal and working relationships can become dysfunctional.

By understanding the four roles of the master herdsman and how these roles play out and are at times overemphasised in certain individuals, it really helped me through a personal experience of this when a work colleague and I were able to overcome the source of pain and misunderstanding which has lead us now to a real, authentic working relationship. It's awesome to be able to utilise all four skills and uplift the effectiveness of relationship.

Whether you’re interested horses or human development—or both—the Eponaquest approach allows you to experience what it means to truly thrive in life, offering you tools that open other worlds of creativity, insight, and empowerment, expanding your vision, helping you reconnect to nature, to the herd and to the community.
