Wild: Untamed, Unbroken, A Natural State
Omen: Sign. Signal

The healing powers of the natural world are all around us. Through the Beauty of Mother Nature and the Wisdom of Equus, A Wild Omen helps connect clients to the world around them in a way they may have never experienced before. Achieving the awareness needed to move past the things that hold them back and allowing them to fully embrace life. 

This is an opportunity to check in with ourselves, become grounded and return to that which makes us whole. Noticing the things that are typically just outside of our awareness, both physically and mentally. To touch down, let go and feel into a somatic, healing experience. Drawing your awareness to the world around you and taking the cues needed to change your course. Guiding you on the road to a happy, healthy, grounded life. 

Grounded in nature, A Wild Omen helps you begin the journey to re-connecting with your truest self by healing past wounds, traumas and self doubt.   
As a unique form of partnering with the horse, Equine Gestalt Coaching is an opportunity to work through the things that hold us back from being happy. Allowing us to heal and move forward. Restoring self esteem, ambition and cleaning out the cobwebs for a clear vision of the future.

This powerful experience helps free us from the feeling of being stuck by trusting our intuition and silencing the voices of self doubt in our heads. Moving past the things that do not serve us and allowing us to live our best life. 

Wild Omen Equine Gestalt Coaching creates an experience that helps clients move from fear based emotions to love based emotions through the healing help of horses and the soft spoken beauty of nature.

What the Heck is Gestalt? 


Loosely translated as Wholeness or Flowing into Form

Gestalt is a life changing experience that allows you to explore who you are and get clear on the things that are holding you back in life. The fundamental belief that we are truly whole and able to be fully present, allows us to trust in ourselves while manifesting our future.

Equine Gestalt Coaching is a highly somatic, mind, body and soul experience which allows you to grow and shift. To know yourself better than ever before while manifesting your path and becoming the best version of you. It is a deeply healing, self empowering experience which will leave you feeling fulfilled and eager to move forward towards your goals, vision, or dreams.

In these sessions, the horses act as co-facilitators. They help to guide us to the  meaning of our situation while keeping us in our truth and away from negative beliefs. The horses natural ability to ground themselves in the present moment helps us to do the same. By doing so, we gain clarity, perspective and peace. It is in these moments that we have our greatest Aha’s. Life changing, course altering real time.

Equine Partners

The horse, by nature, is a prey animal. Because of this, they live entirely in the moment. Present. Highly intuitive and masters at reading our body language, the horse sees us for who we are. Not who we think we are and not who we've been told we are. They see you for you, with no judgement or criticism.​

Horses help us to gain a new level of awareness by bringing us into the present moment. This awareness allows us to recognize the things that were once beyond our reach, unclear or out of focus.

Knowing and experiencing this can help us to shift and free ourselves from the feeling of being stuck. Through this work you will learn to trust your intuition and live deeply grounded in the present moment.​

The horse is a co-active partner in the coaching process. Guiding the work through their highly intuitive nature. Leaving you to never forget the lesson learned and forever changed by the experience.

This coaching experience does not involve riding or any previous horse experience. 


The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989, of the horse to human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.  ©Melisa Pearce

The Herd

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and the travail of the earth" - Henry Beston



Hanavarian Gelding

Avery came into my life as a 4yr old and I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world to walk through life with him.  He remains as brave and as curious today at 21 as he was the day I met him. He stands watch over this farm and is the heartbeat to my life. He = home.

"Physics of The Quest...
"A force of nature governed by the laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared - most of all- to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself...then truth will not be withheld from you."
Elizabeth Gilbert- Eat, Pray, Love
