Hello! We are Bend Horse Talk

Learning by listening… to yourself and the horses.

 

Equine Facilitated Learning is a global phenomenon that provides educational experiences like no other. Ground based interaction between horses and humans provides insight into our behavior and emotions. These insights lead to enhanced communication and relationships.

Our Learn About Horses is simply that. Learn to interact with, care for, understand, and enjoy partnerships with horses.

About us

With a professional background in education, staff development, and horsemanship, we provide you with expert coaching and learning results.
