The Epona True Natural Horsemanship Academy is a division of Epona Stable and Farms Ltd.

Welcome to The Epona Academy of True Natural Horsemanship

True Natural Horsemanship is a bridge between human and horse,
one on which we can walk together.

- Felicia Allen, Founder

True Natural Horsemanship is an entirely human and horse centered relationship and communication experience.

The Epona Academy's True Natural Horsemanship (TNH©) method teaches horse owners and individuals who are interested in horses humane and compassionate ways to communicate and work with horses.

No whip in hand, no whip anywhere!

True Natural Horsemanship

communication does not use any object that subjects the animal to fear to achieve a desired response, nor pain enforcement as 'punishment' or threats using objects as a substitute for effective communication.

The True Natural Horsemanship method achieves everything that commercial natural horsemanship methods achieve with one big difference: No whip in hand, no whip anywhere!

Participate in a workshop where the practitioner does not even carry a whip in any part of the experience. See how the horse responds, learns and socializes naturally.

True Natural Horsemanship

workshops include Horse Owners workshops, Public workshops and Instructor workshops. Please see below and sign up if interested in a new way to work with and communicate with horses!

Horse Owners

True Natural Horsemanship workshops for horse owners teach that:

Meaningful Interaction develops a bond with a horse based on mutual respect and trust.

Simple changes in a language that horses understand - the language of horses - bring positive and desired outcomes while focussing on you for direction, leadership and guidance.

Understanding Misunderstandings with changing common mistakes in communication produce positive outcomes for you and your horse

Learn how to change conditioned concepts for Authentic Dialogue with the highly intelligent and beautiful horse in True Natural Horsemanship workshops..

Public Workshops

For anyone who loves horses and want an experience with the beautiful and majestic horse, we recommend The Way Of The Horse and The Miraculous Self workshops.

The public workshops are ideal for corporations to strengthen staff communications and break communication barriers.
Individuals who are curious and interested to learn more about horses and experience something 'different' will also enjoy these public workshops.
No horse experience needed! Horses natural


Public Workshops

I am not really a horsey person but tried the The Way Of The Horse Workshop because I have always liked horses. It was super interesting and really great! I am getting my mom a certificate for christmas she has always liked horses and she going to love this workshop!

From a stressful job and some stuff I've been sorting out the Miraculous Self workshop made me feel terrific. I connected with my horse who showed me things I never thought about. This was better than any therapy. Really, try it.

Horse Owners Workshops

Felicia is a horse whisperer. At first we were sceptic because she showed us things we thought we already knew having been around horses for many years. She sees things the way that horses see things, her understanding of the horse can't be denied. The concepts are amazing and make so much sense. She doesn't carry a whip or use a whip so refreshing from the other natural horsemanship people. She does it all with herself and the horse. That she has a passion for horses is an understatement. She turned our world around that's for sure.
Maria and Jonathan Baker. Horse owners, Kamloops
