Sara Sherman

Sara ShermanSara has been in the profession of ‘people’ her entire life. Growing up in the hospitality industry and subsequent world travel gave Sara a strong foundation in ‘people skills’ and living outside the box. In 2001 Sara graduated from Prescott College with a degree in Counseling Psychology and Equine Experiential Learning. Prescott College’s motto of “Education is journey, not a destination” set the bar for Sara, encouraging her to never stop learning, growing and living!

Sara has worked in the horse industry for many years in many capacities which included certification as a Therapeutic Riding Instructor, training with the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association and Program Director for a therapeutic riding center that also focused on Equine Experiential Learning and Corporate Team Building. Sara has been an instructor at the college level and continues to grow and learn as a horse professional. Sara is graduate of  Melisa Pearce’s Equine Gestalt Coaching Method™ certification program.

When not working in the horse industry Sara has worked in child welfare, youth and adult addiction recovery, was facility coordinator and program manager for a juvenile detention center and worked in adult mental health for 5 years.

Sara believes it is her calling in life to help the Horse, help people; to show them their stories and mirror their souls. To help others understand that it is our thoughts, and attachment to those thoughts, which dictate the way we experience our lives. Sara’s life experience has taught her that the only true certainty in life, outside of death, is how we CHOOSE to experience this life, on this planet. Horses help us see those thoughts and stories by their very sentient nature. Sara feels blessed to literally be ‘living the dream’ and hopes to help others do the same.

Sara is a graduate of the internationally recognized Equine Gestalt Coaching Method™ developed by Melisa Pearce.
