                                           Wisdom Horse Coaching
                                      by Ann Romberg and Lynn Baskerfield

Dancing in the moment? Make that prancing in the moment for Lynn Baskfield and Ann Romberg,
CTI trained, certified coaches who use the coactive model with an added element: horses.

Romberg and Baskfield have stepped into their big dream: combining coaching and
horses. They’ve created a viable, exciting unusual business informed by the wisdom of the horse
that transforms the workplace and the world. Their company, Wisdom Horse Coaching, is a
leader in the growing field of Equine Guided Coaching and Education.

Equine Guided Education (EGE) is experiential learning in which horses, with a little assistance
from human coaches, guide clients to become more attuned to their strengths and challenges.
Through interactive exercises with horses, people see more clearly how to achieve goals, reach
their potential and lead full out, full-color lives. All activities are done on the ground. No riding is
required.

As Ann and Lynn got clearer and clearer about the “what”—coaching with horses—they began to
tell people, even though they didn’t quite know how it would all evolve. A mutual friend took note
and introduced the two women. The dream came into reality as Ann and Lynn forged a
partnership that continues to serve the business as well as their now flourishing friendship.

Ann and Lynn have been tremendously intentional about what they are doing and where they are
going. They merged their individual coaching practices, worked with other coaches to help them
create strategic and marketing plans, and finally, after 3 years together, each trying to do all
aspects of the business, finally realized that Ann was good at putting vision into form (workshop
agendas, client proposals, etc) and using email and web applications, while Lynn was good at
talking to people, helping them create new possibilities (including becoming clients), and forging
and maintaining relationships. They took “guilt for not doing it all” off their job descriptions and
joyfully let the other do what she does best.

As Wisdom Horse Coaching has grown, Ann and Lynn have taken their own advice to heart and
have begun hiring others with complementary strengths, such as a virtual assistant and a
bookkeeper, to help run and grow their business. Within the last year they have hired a fabulous
public relations person whose efforts have resulted in coverage by local media and is now
expanding into regional and national media — print, broadcast and Web.

Wisdom Horse Coaching provides customized individual coaching programs and personal
retreats, as well as corporate team building and leadership training, in Hudson, Wisconsin;
Tucson, Arizona; and other locations. Wisdom Horse clients are in varied industries including
healthcare, education, insurance, banking and finance, energy, lumber and hospitality.

Wisdom Horse’s yearlong apprenticeship program for aspiring EGE coaches typically has 6-10
enrolled. Following a co-active, independent study model, Wisdom Horse encourages its
apprentices to go out into the community and learn from others as well and requires foundational
coaching training for apprentices who come in from other professions.

Lynn and Ann have long partnered with life coaches who want to use EGE as a powerful resource
for their clients and believe a session or two of EGE can provide useful insights. One executive
coach calls up with what he calls a “horse emergency” whenever he has a chronically stuck client.

In fall 2008, Lynn and Ann hosted a group of equine-guided education coaches (including two
from Canada and two from Scotland) for a professional development circle in which participants
shared best practices and current research on why personal coaching and group training with
horses is so effective.

Equine guided activities fit as naturally with coaching as a good saddle fits a spirited horse. EGE
can carry a person swiftly to their dreams. It has certainly done that for the two “horsey” coaches
from Minnesota.
