Healed by a Horse® is an Equine Facilitated Coaching program designed to help humans release, heal and evolve through their personal challenges—with the help of horses.

Horses have a unique way of holding space and offering feedback so that healing can occur. Whether you are experiencing physical or emotional pain, struggling with negative beliefs or thought patterns, at a crossroad in your life, or just want to deepen your self-awareness, Anna Marie’s herd of teaching and healing horses will help you access the information you need to process through these challenges so that you can learn and grow from them. Their ability to live fully in their body in the present moment makes horses the perfect co-facilitators for Intuitive Coaching!

What does a session look like?

During a Healed by a Horse® session, each participant will receive personalized coaching from Anna Marie and the horses, through a series of body-centered awareness activities. Interacting with horses creates a powerful opportunity for accelerated learning and personal growth that is sustainable and transferrable to your day-to-day life.

No prior horse experience is necessary! All activities are done with all feet and hoofs on the ground. Participants will not mount or ride horses at any point. At times, there will be close contact with horses (including hands-on activities), in accordance with the comfort level of each participant and horse. Anna Marie works intuitively with you and the horses to customize a program for the topic or challenge you would like to work on.

Why Horses?

Horses are highly sensitive beings that live authentically in the present moment, and will help you learn to do the same. Their ability to sense and then mirror your energy and magnify your emotions gives you immediate non-verbal feedback so that you can uncover, discover or re-discover the intuitive wisdom held within you that is needed for healing, growing and evolving.

The safe space created within the energy field of a horse can lead you to living a more authentic life, with powerful new insights about yourself. The horses teach unconditional love (including self-love), healthy boundaries, what it takes to becoming a trustworthy leader and partner, and many other lessons!

Healed by a Horse® coaching sessions help you find balance, alignment and purpose by becoming more in tune with your body, your senses and your emotions.

Meet the Herd




Each one of these beautiful horses came into my life to help me heal, grow and evolve in a different way. I am honored they chose me and that they excitedly participate in workshops and coaching sessions with me and my clients. Each day with them is a blessing.
