About Tracy & Darren

Tracy ~ Coach/Mentor, Visionary, Horse-Medicine Woman

I was a child, enamoured with Horses. Nature and animals were my most sacred relationships. The places where my instinctual and authentic nature could relax and feel free. 

Culture, indoctrination, domestication, and patriarchy, (just to name a few) stripped me of my inner knowing and imposed expectations that I would spend decades shedding. 

The call of the horse has felt strong for my entire life. They have always held a unique medicine for my body, mind and spirit.  Horses have been my medicine animal and spirit guide, as well as a trusted partner, friend and teacher for the last 25 + years.

What has become apparent to me, is that we are in need of restorative spaces where human animals get to rest and recover from the stresses and mental load of modern life.

Communing with the land, connecting with the animals, and allowing your bodies to detoxify, decompress and dissolve into natures embrace, is a kind of medicine that transforms lives.
