How Our Ranch Got Its Name – Hear It Directly from Our Founder

3 Bars Ranch holds a name deeply rooted in love, acceptance, and joy. The inspiration behind the name traces back to the first horse that captured my heart – 3 Bars. At the age of five or six, I had the privilege of riding 3 Bars at a dude ranch. In that magical connection, I experienced a love and acceptance that transcended my tumultuous childhood marked by abuse. The three-inch scars on 3 Bars' hind end, remnants of a different ranch's branding, now symbolize the profound gifts he bestowed upon me: love, acceptance, and joy. 3 Bars Ranch stands as a heartfelt tribute to the horse who lit up the darkest days of my past.

Founder's Journey

Before becoming an Equine Facilitated Life Coach, my career unfolded in the field of marketing. Despite finding satisfaction in marketing roles, I knew it wasn't my true calling. Horses have always been my passion, and about 15 years ago, I discovered equine-facilitated coaching. Recognizing this as my life's purpose, I transitioned into a career where I could integrate horses into healing practices. It has become an incredible blessing to assist individuals in overcoming traumas and life challenges through the extraordinary connection with these majestic animals. I am here to guide you or your loved ones on a path of healing, love, joy, and acceptance. Please reach out via call, text, or email if you're ready to embark on this transformative journey.
