As early as she can remember, Codi has been drawn to horses. As a child her parents insisted it was a phase. But at eight years old, after hours spent mucking stalls and grooming horses, she found herself on the back of a horse. She hasn’t looked back since. Through the years, she’s pursued various disciplines including dressage, hunter/jumper and trail riding.
More recently, her equine focus shifted after bringing home a senior quarter horse, Cajun, whose needs and preferences led her to further explore holistic methods of horse care and connection. Ultimately, this journey presented an inspiring path of healing arts with horses that has aligned her gifted intuition, grounded presence and love for animals and people. She considers herself a life-long student of the horse.
Drawing from experience as an equine structural integration practitioner and Reiki master practitioner, Codi assists horses of all breeds and disciplines in accessing their full potential. Her approach focuses on identifying and releasing tension patterns within the fascial system to restore balance and fluidity within the horse. Codi views each horse as an individual with a unique personality, body type and history. She works in partnership with each horse, tailoring the work to meet their individual needs to achieve results.
