LEARNING AND HEALING
EQUINE EXPERIENTIAL COACHING
Equine Experiential Coaching was founded by Christine Badoux at the Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary to promote the many learning and healing opportunities that exist between people and horses and to improve the quality of life for both. Through our individual and group coaching sessions, workshops and retreats, we offer you the hands-on opportunity to mindfully interact with horses in order to learn more about yourself. We do not ride horses during our sessions and no previous experience with horses is required to participate in our programs.
EQUINE EXPERIENTIAL COACH
Christine is a speaker, writer, and highly trained experiential coach who passionately promotes the learning and healing that occurs between horses and humans. Christine is the founder of Equine Experiential Coaching, which she operates at the Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary, in Cave Creek, Arizona. She strives to improve the quality of life for both horses and humans through her coaching sessions, workshops and retreats, and by volunteering at the sanctuary.
Christine’s training includes Monty Robert’s Introductory Certification course in Solvang, CA and the Eagala (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) level 1 and 2 training courses. She also believes some of her best training comes from parenting a child on the autism spectrum, as she received over four years of one-on-one intensive behavioral training from the Southwest Autism Research & Research Center (SARRC.)
Prior to meeting up with horses, Christine received her BA in International Relations from Syracuse University and spent ten+ years in the hospitality industry, working for Four Seasons, Westin, and Destination Hotels and Resorts. She currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her two favorite teachers, her daughter, Isabelle, and her son, Alex.
TIERRA MADRE HORSE SANCTUARY
“Once you walk through our gates, something about you changes.”
Equine Experiential Coaching takes place at The Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary, a 501C (3) non-profit charitable organization. Tierra Madre began as a home for rescued horses and gradually evolved into a healing and learning sanctuary for people, as well. We are passionate about partnering with Tierra Madre’s horses for our equine assisted learning and coaching programs because we know when you help save horses lives, they always pay it forward by positively changing people’s lives. Tierra Madre is currently home to 32 horses with diverse backgrounds, breeds, and personalities. As you spend time with them, you just might find that you are drawn to horses whose stories represent a portion of your own. To learn more about Tierra Madre and to read about each horse, please visit their website.
Tierra Madre is located at: 27115 N. 45th Street, Cave Creek, AZ 85331 (480) 469-9166
