While searching for a horse to add to my small heard of one, I came across the photo shown on this webpage via Serenity Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation located in Kent, WA. Cody was two at the time this photo was taken.

The photo of Cody drew me in. It felt as if he was staring right at me. I was compelled to inquire about him. In doing so, I soon found that Cody was under the foster care of one of the rescue’s volunteers. I made arrangements to travel to the area to meet him and the volunteer.

Cody and I connected immediately! I asked his foster mom, Lorrin, why she chose me to adopt Cody. Her reply, “I didn’t, he did”! I am so glad he did! We have been together since the summer of 2012.

As riding partner’s Cody and I have learned so much together, and then I decided to become an Equine Gestalt Coach. Becoming an equine coach meant that I would need to partner with Cody in a whole new way. He stepped up to the new challenge and has proven his skills as an equine therapy horse. His gentle and intuitive nature brings a sense of calm and healing to our clients.

I’d invite you to come out for a session and meet Cody. He will show you unconditional love and support through your journey of healing and transformation.


For as long as I can remember, I had wanted a horse, and much to my surprise – I am no longer surprised at what the Universe provides for us – in November 2004, I became a horse owner. At the time I purchased Royal, the only thing I knew about horses is that I loved horses. I had no experience or knowledge of their care and feeding.
As I learned and grew in my horsemanship skills, Royal and I became a TEAM! Riding him, caring for him, and learning through him created an entirely new world for me. Little did I know that this new world was just the beginning of what was brewing for my future?
Royal passed over the rainbow bridge on December 10, 2013. He is part of my “Herd” in spirit! He was a catalyst in my decision to enter into the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method and the inspiration for the business name, A Tail of New Beginnings. In the time that we shared, we had many incredible adventures and opportunities for creating NEW BEGINNINGS.

I look forward to sharing their love and healing gifts with you.
