we burn + we bloom


Who We Are

We are a unique, client-led practice based in Bozeman, MT. We partner with horses to help you navigate through overwhelm so you can embrace life wholeheartedly. Horses have a natural awareness to energy and emotion which makes our approach a fresh and highly effective alternative to traditional emotional therapy.  

No upcoming events at the moment

We exist to bring hope to the hopeless and healing to the hollow.

What We Do

We strive to prove that individual beauty blooms from ashes.


We are not: standard talk therapy, activities with horses, or therapeutic riding. Through the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® (EGCM), we journey into your pain to extract that which does not serve you. And help reroute your trajectory. 


EGCM is experiential in nature and is deeply tied to body somatics (body response). This holistic approach allows for a release of energy, emotional blocks and pain. Typically, EGCM clients experience permanent resolutions to the issues covered during their sessions and find that the process elicits lasting change in their lives. 

This remarkable healing process is possible because horses act as a mirror to your soul and beyond. They have the ability to see us on a different plane than we do as humans. As prey animals, horses are hyper-aware of the energy field around them. This vantage creates an acute sensitivity and grants them access to our pain as a steady guiding force. 

Your story is completely unique, so it is next to impossible to give a play-by-play of how your session will unfold. At a baseline, you will be working one-on-one with EGCM Certified Coach, Carly and her horses. Your session will be personal, intentional, and tailor-fit to your needs.

"Sometimes, it is only through devastation that we find the truth. Hardship can be like a cleansing fire. It uncovers the only thing we truly need to survive: hope." - Kim Meeder

What Is Equine Coaching?

Coaching is a co-active process where the coach and client work together to bring resolution to the client. We approach our clients on level ground. The coach does not hold your answers, but rather guides you in discovery of that which has been outside of your awareness. What sets us apart is the use of the EGC Method®. Our horses deepen the entire process with their keen attunement and soft nature.

Coaching is not psychotherapy, but can be used in conjunction with therapy.
