Leading Edge Equine Academy

Monique Gerber is a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator and the owner and founder of Leading Edge Equine Academy.  Monique grew up with horses and has a great appreciation for the healing and wisdom that horses provide.  She has spent a lifetime studying herd dynamics and survival instincts which influence greatly the horse human connection.
