What is Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful relationship which can support people who are in transition take suitable steps to advance their position, clarify goals, strengths, values and begin to work toward progress in both the personal and professional arenas.

Suitable candidates should be open and ready for change. Coaches don’t solve problems, we help bring forward your individual strengths and offer support while you apply them to your specific situation. This will be an introspective journey which will require some effort on the participant’s part. These efforts will pay dividends as you will go forward more confidently in whichever direction is right for you. Undoubtedly, you will get out of a coaching session what you put in.

The whole aim of coaching is to close the gap between people’s potential and their current state.
— Jenny Rogers, Coaching Skills 2004

What is Coaching at HJC?

Coaching at HJC incorporates experiential learning with horses and one on one (no horses involved) coaching in person or via phone or video conference to as ongoing support, learning and accountability for our clients.

Setting goals and achieving them often requires outside support. Similar to an athlete striving to get to the Olympics - goals need to be broken down and a realistic strategy created. Approaching career and life goals with a coach adds a new dimension helping you to realize those goals

Coaching women toward leadership.

At HJC we have been dedicated to working with women and girls toward leadership development since our inception in 2008.

Programs are currently in development for women seeking to improve or unlock their leadership potential and create powerful networks of support. These programs combine executive\business coaching with an experiential equine element we call Equine Informed Coaching.

Look for pilot programs to take place in March 2019.


Equally, young women and girls have infinite and often untapped leadership potential. We are dedicated to developing programs which empower young women to rise in the direction of their dreams while developing the skills which will propel them forward.

Coaching in a safe environment both with and without the direct use of horses, we look forward to continuing to work with these groups.

Look for pilot programs to take place in March 2019.

You don’t need a title to be a leader. You lead by example.

Alumnae of the Women Transforming Leadership Programmes (including Ellen Jones) discuss the added value of networking and recall their recent experiences April 2019.
