What is First Nature Foundation?

​​At First Nature Foundation, our mission is to cultivate 21st Century Leadership: to help develop core self-leadership and collective leadership skills needed for this time. We do not provide any form of therapy. Instead, we utilize and believe in Equine and Nature Facilitated Personal and Professional Development to guide our programs.*

We work with leaders and teams in organizations to develop leadership skills that will enhance their capacities for engagement, collaboration, and generative outcomes.  


We also offer leadership development programs for children, teens, and adults to evoke more of their innate leadership potential for more success in school, career, relationships, and community.


In the process, we nurture a reverence for all sentient life, along with awareness of its inherent wisdom.  


"Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another."

"The process of releasing and letting go. That I am already these things to honor myself now. Horses healed me, Kody healed me and that was surreal." - Caitlin
