In 2017 I made the decision to leave my corporate role and begin a new career that gave me joy and a sense of accomplishment. After becoming certified as an Equine Assisted Coach-Trainer, I went in search of my new business partner (a horse). I knew that I wanted to rescue a horse.

I found Next Step Horse Rescue in the Colorado Springs area. They had a few horses that seemed of interest to me and I made an appointment to visit. Next Step had several great horses but I fell in love with Prince (aka Sir Lancelot). We adopted him and brought him home to Boulder and his new barn, Medicine Horse.

Today, Prince and I enjoy lots of trail rides together and he helps me run my coaching business and he also participates in Equine Psychotherapy helping kids and adults on the ground with grief, trauma, abuse, PTSD and more. He’s loved by lots of people & especially me. I’m proud to tell everyone that my horse makes me a better person, and it’s true.

What #RightHorse means to me

I feel strongly that horses should be rescued whenever possible, there are lots of wonderful horses who need a loving home.

For my 16th birthday, when most girls get a car, I was blessed to get a horse named Cooper and call him mine! I was the happiest girl ever. We had such a bond and a love from the minute we laid eyes on each other. I will never forget the day that we rescued each other!

As the months went by he would reach out and lightly touch me with his nose, just to be close to me. I think that was a big step for him. He tried so hard to do what I asked. He really loved me, I think, before I loved him.

I fell in love with Champ and just had to have him. Champ wasn’t like the other horses. There is something about him that I just fell in love with. We connected so well and it’s like we understood one another.
