Harness the Power Within

Unbridled Coaching combines traditional life and corporate coaching methods with the intuitive nature of horses in order to improve our relationship with others, advance our goals, and better our lives. Located in Osgoode, Ontario, we offer private sessions, workshops and corporate retreats. Our Equus coaches also do speaking engagements.

Equus Coaching is a unique and highly effective coaching service offered by two award-winning Ottawa motivational and leadership coaches, Marlene Armstrong and Maureen Donoghue. It draws on the instincts and wisdom of horses to provide a greater sense of self, as well as social awareness.

The Unfiltered Truth Horses always react in an extremely authentic and intrinsically honest way – without judgment. With horses, there is an immediate and visceral reaction that speaks to your strengths, your weaknesses and your overall effect on others. Your body language and tone speak volumes; by becoming more aware of this effect and the emotions that drive it, you will be better equipped to take charge of your life and the directions you set.

An Awakening While this practice is fairly novel to Canada’s Capital Region, it has been gaining increased attention and recognition around the world. Seeing yourself through the eyes and soul of a horse is  the first step towards greater self-awareness and breakthroughs. Several equus coaching centers have emerged around the world, particularly in the U.S., due to the very impressive and compelling results it produces. The sessions are empowering individuals and teams to be better co-workers, partners and leaders. Overall, they are inspiring us to just be better.
