My Philosophy

I have spent the past 20 years with a focus and passion for two things; horses and human potential.  Foundational to my work and teachings is that "It's not about the horse."  It's about you.  It's about who you are and how you show up in life. 

My journey with the horse is somewhat unorthodox.  I didn't grow up with horses, in fact it wasn't until my mid-twenties that I was introduced to horses and you could say my life hasn't been the same since.  I was at a very low period of my life, when fate led me to a small ranch in Colorado where I would learn a fundamental and transformative lesson.  I discovered that horses had more to teach me beyond the basic enjoyment of a trail ride.  I wasn't there to just ride, I was there to heal, learn, discover and to grow.  I learned how to lead my life in a more confident and intentional way.  That fateful ranch visit was what brought my two passions together into my life's mission and purpose.

Although I am not a horse trainer or clinician by profession, I have spent the last 15 years learning from and studying the very best in the horsemanship industry.  Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, John Lyons, Clinton Anderson, Pat Parelli, Chis Cox, have all been extremely influential in my development.  I can't emphasize enough the importance of developing a strong training foundation with your horse, as a balance to the ideas of Horse Empowered™.

The Horse Empowered™ Programs exist at the intersection of horsemanship and life. I provide a new way to think about and to connect with your horse and your life.  Every opportunity with a horse is an opportunity to learn about yourself and your leadership skills.  Rather than focus externally, on horse training tips and techniques, we go internal,  focusing on your own personal growth and development.  

I invite you to join me in a journey of discovery.  Discover the most authentic expression of yourself and engage in life with more purpose, meaning and fulfillment, all through the relationship with your horse.  Whether its one-on-one or group coaching, corporate leadership development programs and retreats or my online training programs, everyone can learn from the lessons of the horse.

Don't just train your horse, lead your horse and empower your life.
