WHY WE CHOOSE ARABIAN HORSES
We work with the breed that is known as the most exclusive, most valuable and oldest breed of the world... But above all, they are known for their enormous sensitivity, kindness and strong connection to humans:
The Arabian Horse.
Since thousands of years, the Bedouins had such a strong connection to these horses that they shared their tents with these wonderful and loyal creatures and carefully selected the ones that were closest to humans. Some of the biggest leaders of the world such as Napoleon or Alexander the Great were known to have Arabian horses as their most loyal partners. These leaders rode on the back of these ethereal horses, sometimes bare back, communicating with nothing but their mind and body language.
Our serene farm is situated in Belgium right in the center between Brussels and Antwerp, and conveniently 20 min from the Brussels Airport.
We are set up for groups of up to 10 people.
All coachings include coffee, snacks, fruit and beverages.
We can customize the offer with food & drinks according to your liking.

What is the process of a Horse Coaching Session or Workshop?The majority of the workshops and coaching sessions we run, and in particular the individual sessions are all different. There is of course an overall structure or agenda to every session. But what happens in the sessions itself is never structured, but depends on what shows up in the process that we are going through. In general, we work partly with the horses and sometimes we do exercises and reflective work in-between without the horses. After the session (about 10-14 days later), there is always a quick follow up - either a meeting with all workshop participants on zoom, or a quick voice message on messenger. This is important in order to make sure, all coachees and participants are on track and feeling good.
What do I need to wear and what do I need to bring?We will be working outside with the horses, so you need to make sure that you have weather proof clothes. The workshop will take place even if the weather is not ideal, (so unless it is raining "cats and dogs"). You need to make sure that you wear appropriate shoes (no sandals allowed) like sneakers or good walking shoes. The clothes you bring can get dirty so we recommend to take something washable. We will provide you with drinks and some snacks, but we always recommend to bring a bottle of water for your trip home.
Will the workshop or my session still take place in bad weather?We always follow through with the workshops and 1-2-1 sessions even if the weather is not ideal. The weather plays an important role in the coaching and forms part of the coaching experience. The horses dont mind the bad weather at all, just us humans do ;). Conditions under which we do not coach: 1) SNOW 2) Under 12C temperature. 3) Storm & massive rain.
Do I need experience with horses in advance?You (and your team) don't need to have any experience with horses in advance. The horses can work with anyone. No matter if you are an experienced rider or have never been in touch with a horse.
What if I have fear of horses?We have worked with a lot of people that have had (different levels) of fear of horses. In our experience, EVERY single person that faced their fear of horses at our facilities, fell completely in love with the horses and had a massive breakthrough in their personal development journey.
In which languages do you provide the coaching?We mainly work in English, but we also work in German. For some languages we can co-facilitiate with other coaches if necessary, in particular in Belgium.
Where do the workshops take place?We offer workshops in Belgium, Vienna, Austria, Stockholm, Zurich, Munich, California & Dubai. To see more about our main Location and Partner Stables, check out Location Overview. https://nadiaboersch.com/horse-coaching#locations
Can I bring my dog?Unfortunately, we have had bad experiences with dogs on the side during our Workshops & Coachings. It presents a significant risk to both the dog and the horses. Additionally, our workshops and coaching sessions involve profound emotional work, and we've observed that having dogs on site can be distracting for both the participants and the horses, disrupting their experience and the process.
How much capacity do you have in one Team Building session?The ideal group size is about 8 people. But also bigger groups around 12–15 people are welcome. Under this condition, we are working with a second coach to provide the complete coaching experience.
What areas do you offer to work on with companies?We offer 4 types of coaching sessions. 1. Confident Leadership, We have a special program for young/junior female leaders 2. Impact on Stage and Speaking 3. Sales & Getting to YES 4. Team Building Workshops / High Performing Teams
Can I bring my kids?To the coffee and horses free events we of course welcome kids. In the workshops however we do deep emotional work and we have found that having children on site, distracts both the participants and the horses from the healing journey and process. If you want to bring your kids before or after the workshop to spend some cuddle time with the horses, you are more than welcome to do so.
Do you offer coaching sessions just about horsemanship?Yes we do. Horsemanship is a part of energetic work with horses. However we would recommend instead of individual work on horsemanship or energetic work with horses, that you tune into "The Horse-Frequency" Workshop - series.
Can I bring my own horse to participate in the Private Session?This will have to be discussed on an individual basis, usually Nadia prefers to work with Arabian Horses and/or her horses, and it is has certain benefits to work with horses that you do not know because they give you a non-biased view. When we work with horses that we have a close connection to, we may associate certain behaviours as "he always does this ..." he always does this when..." versus an objective mirroring behaviour that the horses always offer, but the participant may not be able to see.
“Nadia is very easy to remember because her topic is very interesting. What I really love about Nadia is she treats her brand like her best love affair. Nadia is one of my favourite speakers at Global Woman Club and I will definitely to invite her to speak again.”
