About The Teacher
Raised in Wyoming Abby was blessed with the gift of time, freedom and space on ranches with friends on weekends. This created excitement and true freedom which connected her to the world, and becoming more authentic on a life path she was to embark on. Through feeding the cows or riding horses, she learned what it was like to be totally free, and take in healing breaths of life. The moments on the ranches helped her become grounded in the truth that she truly matter in this world. This truth took time to surface. Upon discovering her purpose, the horses and the open space called her name in 2007.
Finding the love of her life Mark, he took her to his home in Decker, Montana where she discovered what she was missing. A rush of peace came flooding into her heart and she knew she was home. They ran the ranch together for several years. The horses helped her teach Mark how to grow into an amazing father and husband. There are many Memes about “Before you marry a person, you should first work cows with them to see who they really are.” Ranching in any aspect teaches you about patience and persistence. It isn’t for the weak at heart. Carrying a vision of a space where people could come to the open space, work with the animals and feel the rush of freedom that she cherishes, led her home to Silesia Montana. This feeling flooded her when they walked onto the property. Cottonwood Ranch became home to Cottonwood Equine Coaching in June 2019. The courses she learned and became certified in, provided her with tools on how to show up with an authentic heart, and to open a space for others. Leading them to uncover their “inner” leader, results in them discovering new experiences in life.
