Horses have always held a special place in my heart. From a young age, I found solace in their presence and a sense of security that was difficult to find among people. They became a source of strength for me, and even when I couldn't be near them physically, I would often imagine myself riding or running alongside them.
Although I had the privilege of owning a horse for a brief period during my childhood, it wasn't until much later in life, in my early 40s, that I was finally able to realize my dream of owning several horses and spending every day in their company.
For me, being around horses is not just a hobby, but a way of life that has brought me immense joy and fulfillment. It's a feeling that is hard to put into words, but there's something about the bond between horse and human that is truly special and can't be found elsewhere. I feel incredibly grateful to have horses in my life and to be able to share that love and passion with others.
As a parent of three successful young adults, I am proud of my accomplishments in raising them. However, my attention has now shifted to my lifelong passion of utilizing horses to assist humans overcome the many obstacles that can occur in life. My faith in God and my own personal journey with PTSD, has led me to the incredible healing power of horses, and I am motivated to share this gift with others who may be struggling with anxiety, PTSD, trauma, feelings of isolation, and low self-esteem. Drawing from my diverse life experiences, including both positive and negative, I am committed to guiding my clients toward a sense of liberation and purpose.
How I Got Here
Perhaps you're curious about how I came to be where I am today. In 2012, I had the pleasure of meeting an exceptional woman. Her love for horses was contagious, and she imparted a great deal of knowledge to me on the subject. As a result, I gained enough confidence to keep horses on my property. Additionally, I invested three years in training with the Koelle Institute of Equus Coaching and successfully attained certification as an Equus Life Coach. I have also had training through the Natural Lifemanship Jumpstart Program. To this day I am still learning and will be working on another certification through a Christian coach training program. I cannot wait to share my skills with another. Through faith in God and love of horses I pray my skills can help others overcome the obstacles of a beautiful life.
Equus Coaching Explained
Having a horse present during coaching can broaden your self-awareness in ways you never thought possible. Horses offer sincere and gentle feedback without any personal biases or resentment, creating a safe space for you to express your emotions freely. This can lead to a deeper level of trust in the insights you uncover during the process.
