“Veronica Lac is not only a gifted therapist but a gifted teacher. I took a clinic that helped our team explore Equine Assisted Learning in depth. With her help everything clicked. I left her clinic very confident in my ability to lead equine assisted learning activities – something I had not been confident in leading prior to her workshop.”



“INCREDIBLE experience, I’d recommend this to anyone.”  



“The HERD institute is the most academic and philosophically based Equine Facilitated Program that I have seen. The curriculum is challenging, and it encourages you to stretch your understanding. Veronica demonstrates her support and care for each of her students. I highly recommend the HERD institute.”



“Sometimes there aren’t the right words – but I will try! I first met Veronica Lac at a course around attachment and neuroscience which she ran at Rainbow Horses in the UK. I attended the 2 day course and was blown away and inspired – by Veronica’s professionalism, vision, and ability to hold a space. I was so excited when she decided to run certification in the UK and just had to do it! I am a qualified therapist and had already done by initial EFP training with LEAP in the UK – but the HERD approach really spoke to me and I knew that it was going to help me deepen my practice. My time with Veronica and my cohort has been life changing to say the least. I have been pushed in ways that I had not imagined, not all pleasant, and been supported all the way through. I have grown in ways that I had never dreamed and my practice has developed beyond measure. I am so excited to continue to grow within the HERD. I encourage anyone considering this training to go for it if it resonates with you. You will be supported to grow in a spirit of abundance, and challenged to be the best you can be, integrating this model into your own approach. The theoretical and philosophical underpinnings are consistent with the practical approach and this makes it a safe and ethical model within which to practice. I am very open to any questions that you may have, so feel free to contact me.”
