Tara Pogoda – The Communication Expert

Tara Pogosa

A journey to freedom…

My adventure of “Riding Between the Worlds” began in my mid-40’s when I bought my first horse, Joe.

Joe was noble, graceful and powerful and had the unusual claim-to-fame of being ridden through a Wendy’s drive–thru.

I naively imagined that we would ride blissfully off into the sunset together.


The fantasy was  over when I realized that Joe was actually a 1000-pound mirror.

He somehow knew every self-doubt, fear and insecurity that lay buried inside of me, and patiently gave me undeniable evidence, that despite having achieved outer success in many areas of my life, I still had more inner work to do.

This discovery inspired a deep personal transformation that ultimately resulted in me changing my life course to pursue specialized professional training in Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) and start a business, Fifth Element Ranch.

The powerful program, Connect ∙ Experience ∙ Transform™ that I developed uses the brilliant intuition of the horse that Joe showed me, to help my clients better understand the self-imposed limits and barriers that keep them from living their dreams.

Let me and Joe (and Max) show you how to take the reins of your life and claim your innate abilities to cultivate creativity, abundance, and joy.
