Equine Therapeutic Center in Rougemont, North Carolina
Circle of Oaks is an equine therapeutic center for women, who come here for life coaching and personal growth and development using horses. Our clients do not ride our horses. All our work is done from the ground.
Who we are:
Elizabeth Love Kennon CLC, ACC, our client services director, provides life coaching services for our clients through one-on-one and small group sessions. She is a career equine professional and natural horsemanship instructor, and works with our horses to prepare them for therapeutic work. Mary Lee Lobach MD, ESMHL, our barn manager and CEO, oversees the horses during client sessions and cares for them during off hours. She is a life-long horsewoman, a former gynecologist, and a certified Equine Specialist with PATH International. Our horses are our partners and team members in serving our clients.
What we love:
The company of women. The company of horses. Watching women grow through self-discovery and insight, helped by the big heart of a horse. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The presence of God.
