Equine Gestalt Coaching is a heart, mind, and body experience.
Through this unique, experiential process, I walk alongside you as the horses share their amazing gift of living in the present moment, helping you drop the outside chatter and noise so you can better understand and get to know yourself in a new way.
Offering a safe, supportive environment, we invite you to come as you are – no judgments, no expectations. You will be seen, heard, and valued.
Partnering with the horses, I will guide you through the Equine Gestalt process as you challenge and let go of the thoughts, feelings, and limiting beliefs that are holding you back from living the life you want, while gaining the courage and clarity to navigate the twists and turns along the way.
If the time is right for you to unlock the chains that hold you captive, you will have the opportunity to stretch, grow, heal, and shift . . . bit by bit.
No horse experience is necessary, and you will not ride the horses.
Sessions will be held in the indoor (weather dependent) arena. Please dress accordingly and wear closed-toed shoes. A heated/air-conditioned lounge is also available.
Private Session: 1.5 hour session
Private Intensive Retreat: Three 1.5 hour sessions on two consecutive days.
Virtual or Phone Coaching Sessions may be blended with Equine Gestalt sessions to meet your specific needs.
As a coach, Myra embodies kindness, compassion, caring, and joy. It is comforting to be in her presence, and the light in her eyes is not only uplifting but reassuring, indicative of hope and the knowledge that the client has someone who is present, wise, and has your back.
The horses found the joy deep inside my heart and gave me permission to let go of my pain. I find joy now about who I am.

Group Coaching & Workshops
You may prefer to participate in a small group setting where you can interact with other group members, share your thoughts and feelings, and learn from other’s experiences. Group size is limited to provide a more personal experience. The level of your engagement is up to you. The more you give, the more you receive.
We’re aware that participating in a group process may be a new experience for some. Therefore, throughtout the year, we create events that range in time and budget commitment, giving you the opportunity to dip your toe in the process or participate in a full day event.
At times, the group process is free flowing, meaning we process and honor whatever is on your hearts and minds while seeking healthy movement. At other times, the group may focus on various themes such as identifying your values, creating your vision, healing from a loss, reconnecting with self, understanding personality type and temperment, refining your rhythm, and other special topics.
Group coaching sessions and workshops are held in our indoor arena or barn (both weather dependent), at a predetermined location, or virtually. Location will be specified in event details.
When events are held at Crossing Life’s Bridges, horses will typically be involved on some level – weather permitting. Please dress accordingly and wear closed-toed shoes. A heated/air-conditioned lounge is also available.
Group Sessions: 2 to 3 hour sessions to full day events
This experience really helped me get out of my head and come back to the center of my spirit.
I appreciate the trust, skill, and support that comes not only from Myra but each horse as well. It isn’t easy to describe what happens here, but I feel empowered and amazed at this work. It’s incredible to witness.
- Are you so busy giving to everyone else that you’ve forgotten about self-care?
- Is it time to slow down and reconnect with that person in the mirror?
- Would you like to create a healthy rhythm in your life – home, work, rest, and play – but aren’t sure how?
Given the pace of everyday life and the demands of being pulled in multiple directions, it isn’t easy to live in the present moment. We try to convince ourselves that we’ll take better care of ourselves “when things slow down”, “after you finish a project”, “when the kids get older”, or “next month” – which turns into next year!
I get it. Been there. Done that. Still do that if I’m not intentional. What I learned is this cycle won’t shift on its own.
In order to give your best to those you love and care for, you need to prioritze taking care of yourself. News flash – It will look different for all of us, and that’s okay!
If this resonates with you, maybe it’s the right time to give yourself a unique and uplifting gift where humans and horses partner together to create a safe, supportive space to refuel your heart, reset your mind, and replenish your soul.
Retreats are held in the indoor arena (weather dependent) or at a predetermined location. Location will be specified in event details.
When events are at Crossing Life’s Bridges, horses will join us in some way – weather permissing. Please dress accordingly and wear closed-toed shoes. A heated/air-conditioned lounge is also available.
Retreats: 1.5 to 2.5 days
The retreat offered me a chance to slow down, relax, and learn more about myself. I felt the healing power of self-care. Taking care of my own needs benefits my family and friends. The presence of the horses was incredibly healing.
