In reflecting back over the year on all those who generously connected with, supported and jumped right into Unbridled Coaching’s “pasture”, it sure feels like we are standing before you, like at the Academy Awards, with a list of credits. We know it really does take a village to move forward in this world, so this list, we suspect, is not totally complete. That said, we do want to take this time, to publicly acknowledge some very precious “herd” members.
The Foxview Stables Team
Jenna McKay, Farm Manager extraordinaire AND horse trainer; Morgan McKay, veterinarian in the making and resident “Wise Woman”; Rachel Bell for allowing her precious four-leggeds (Mojo, Tony and Twinkles) and Sophie Gauthier for her precious Oakley (may be rest in peace) to be our Equus Coaching partners (who were stellar, by the way!)
Speaking of four-leggeds, honourable mention must be given to Dusty (our 21 year old Appendix mare and still going strong) who has been our coaching partner from the start and to Turika who completed her first Equus Coaching session with flying colours and went on to do more over the summer.
To Molson and the resident pussy cats, that put our clients at ease, make them smile, and we suspect do a bit of their own people whispering as required.
Unbridled Coaching Clients
You said yes to your heart’s call. You said yes to trusting us. You opened to seeing yourself through the eyes of the horses. You showed courage to be vulnerable. You showed up for the all of you and in so doing, opened the door for those around you to do the same. We would not be here without you. Thank you for transforming us!

Unbridled Coaching Star Resources
Maggie Ashton has been a long time supporter of Unbridled Coaching and as such provided us with many leads and referral being responsible for much of our success this past season. Her partner, Betty-Anne Howard is also one of our best cheerleaders, promoting us on many occasions and at events.
Steve Lowell provided us with guidance on how to tell our story at his “Back of the Napkin” workshop which has given us much confidence in explaining what it is we do to new and interested clients.
Jayne Blumenthal, also a great supporter, is a business coach who has taught us how to go for what it is we want and are worth. Many life and business lessons learned!
Wendy Mayhew is another force of nature. We met Wendy last year at Sharon Moore’s POW50 event http://www.pow50.com/ Wendy invited us to participate in the Start Up Canada 2017 conference, and to make a long story short, Unbridled Coaching came out of the event as an award winning company!

Equus Coaching Founder
A final very deep bow to the woman who started it all, Koelle Simpson. Her heart is large and she is wise beyond her years. She is celebrating her 11th year of equus coaching with the founding of the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching in 2016. Congratulations, Koelle!
