Before I completed an EAL session, I was pretty uncomfortable around horses. However - Kristel does an amazing job facilitating these sessions. I felt completely safe. It was truly such a worthwhile experience - I gained a ton of confidence in just 1 session! Kristel has a deep love for horses, and it shows. I would highly recommend trying EAL!

The EAL experience with Kristel was wonderful in a number of ways. It helped me emotionally and was a confidence boost ?. I am very grateful for this opportunity to connect with beautiful LaCosta -a memorable moment.

I had a fabulous time with Kristel during my own equine learning session, as well as watching her work with children. She is a calm and empathetic teacher who connects easily with her clients. Kristel sets her participants at ease and encourages them to take from the session what they need as individuals. I highly recommend her sessions.

I have been working with Kristel in EAL Programs at ROARR since March. She has a kind, and caring way about her that makes her such a wonderful facilitator. She is creative and always very well organized - working with, and learning from Kristel has been such a pleasure and I always look forward to it!

I had the great fortune to meet Kristel and experience Equine Assisted Learning with her gentle guidance at Reverence Stables.Kristel is a caring facilitator who creates a safe environment to learn about connecting with self and others while interacting with the horse.As a person who has owned a horse for many years, she offered reminders that were so helpful in working with other horses - simple things that I've taken for granted with my own horse because I know him so well after working with him for so many years.Thank you for the lovely teachings that both you and Karma provided, Kristel.

I don't think words can truly describe the experience! This was my first experience attending an EAL session. I have ridden horses before but have never been super comfortable around them. Kristel did such a great job at creating conversation around the worries and helping us to build confidence as we worked with the horses. I was happy to know that we won't be riding the horses but rather guiding them through various obstacles. The obstacles themselves were simple in design, but it was more about my own ability to connect with the horse I had and have her go through them. By the third obstacle I could feel myself and my teammate (that I had only just met that day) fully relax. The time went too quickly because I had so much fun being fully present in the moment and feeling really proud of myself. I hope for, and look forward to, many more EAL sessions with Kristel. She knew exactly when to step in for support but allowed us time to sort through the challenges. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Kristel is a wonderful facilitator. She takes the time to genuinely get to know her program participants and adapts her program to help her students find success. She is knowledgeable, caring and kind. Kristel puts safety first - that of her participants and of the horses.It has been a pleasure working with her and learning from her over the last two years.
