My Journey with the Touched by a Horse program started in 2014. I was on a Facebook page for a pet psychic, and someone was posting pictures of beautiful horse art and inspirational quotes from a website called Touched by a Horse.
At that time, I was at a point in my life where I was ready to go even deeper to heal my past and move forward possibly with a new career or just a lifelong desire to really learn about horses.
I was that little girl who always wished for a pony when I blew out my birthday candles. I was fascinated by equine therapy, and had enjoyed some horseback riding as young girl. I was intrigued by the use of horses to heal the heart, emotions and our perceptions of life, but never explored in depth. I remember the Sandra Bullock movie (2000) 28 Days, where she was using the horses in her rehabilitation center. I was so intrigued by that and other healing stories I’d heard.
Once I clicked over to the Touched by a Horse website, I watched the video about their program over and over again. (Touched by a Horse is the training program that certifies graduates to offer Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCMethod®) to others. Learn more about EGCMethod® here.)
I have practiced numerous healing modalities in my life before, but this was a new opportunity to actually have a career that rolled all my life experiences into a program AND learn how horses do this work.
I received the catalog and researched more about it and it spoke to me so strongly. The promo video said that I didn’t need to own a horse to start the program; so in full trust I went ahead and filled out the application form. I was accepted into the program with all of my life qualifications at hand and began my journey in July of 2016.
I am now a graduate of this program and graduated and was certified in September 2018.
Over those past two years of training I have learned so much, and healed so many more aspects of my life. Including owning my own horse!!
Right here, right now I feel I am in the exact perfect place in my life right now to start my practice. The barn facility is perfect, my horse is perfect and I have the ability to use others on the ranch. I am so honored, and in deep gratitude, to be able to do this work with my horse Willy, the horses, and to be their partner and conduit to have them be able to be your modality in helping humans to heal.
