Equine Erin is a horse-based marketing business located in the beautiful hills of Erin, Ontario. Equine Erin offers marketing, events, and workshops for the local horse industry, individuals, youth and adults.
Bridget Ryan has been intrigued by horses since she was a young girl. As a child, horses were an important part of her overall farm experience. Bridget experienced many moments of joy, peace and connection while in the presence of horses.
After studying the creative arts, Bridget lived and worked in Toronto, in the marketing and promotion sector. In 1999 she and her family moved to their Erin farm, and once again was living with horses. Bridget’s marketing business, Equine Erin evolved to include events and equine educational workshops, nature camps, and horse-related writing.
In 2005, Bridget and her horse Classy, were participants in Horse Spirit Connections’ inaugural FEEL workshop called The Power of Two. This experience opened the door to a more expanded view of horse/human partnership and created a desire and a curiosity to learn more. As a registered facilitator, Bridget/Equine Erin now offers FEEL (Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning) ® sessions for youth, families and individuals. Being with horses and being in nature, builds resiliency, creates connection and supports our work and personal relationships.
Bridget’s other skills and interests include creative writing (University of Toronto) eco-sustainability, local food and community projects. Bridget has certifications in F.E.E.L., Reflexology, Therapeutic Touch, Eco-mentorship and Wild Edible Plants.
