Equine Assisted Learning Team

Shona Davis – Team Project Pony Manager/Equine Trainer/EPI trained EAL

My position at Epona Brae is team project pony manager and equine trainer. I am Equine Psychotherpy Institute trained as an Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator.

I have been working at Epona Brae for almost decade. I started as a stable hand and now I run the groups, work with individual clients and  train the horses. I love seeing the connection between clients and horses and seeing both develop authentically.

When working with the equine therapists I aim to keep them happy, exploring and enjoying life as they learn, grow and advance in their therapy careers. I am knowledgable in horse psychology and train this way with our herd.

I love working at Coventry Psychology as the work always varies and my team is amazing. My passion of horses and people into a career is a dream.

Ellie Godbehere – Assistant Equine Trainer/Team Project Pony member/Social Media Manager 

My  journey with horses began in 2019 when I rescued my horse Brennah.

I was lucky enough to meet the staff at Coventry who helped me train Brennah. From there I got to know everyone at Coventry Psychology really well and took a position as stable hand and group assistant.  I have since taken on the roles of Assistant horse trainer and Social Media manager. 

Having the opportunity to assist with our Team Project Pony groups over the last few years and witnessing the personal development clients experience has been incredibly rewarding for me and i am excited to continue to watch more clients grow in the future. 

Through rescuing Brennah i developed a passion for training horses and am lucky enough to work alongside Shona in training the equine therapists. 

My main goal is to become a psychologist so I can develop my skills and continue working at Coventry Psychology and be able to help a range of people going through different life experiences.
