Nicole McCurdy instantly found her love for horses at the age of 10 when she first went horseback riding with her cousin. Fun loving and active, she loved everything to do with horses. Whether it was trail riding, showing, jumping, swimming, brushing and bathing, if it involved horses Nicole was in heaven. Her love and passion for these majestic animals has endured.
At the age of 21 Nicole was managing a barn and thought it was time to buy her own horse. Promise was more like a puppy than a horse. She followed Nicole wherever she went, the two of them had a deep heart connection.
One year later Nicole's journey was about to change when she became pregnant with her first child. Life circumstances meant that Nicole had to make a very hard choice. Promise had to be re-homed so that Nicole could care for the baby to come. Determined to embrace her new role as a mother, Nicole said farewell to Promise. To this day that deep connection has had a lasting impression in her heart.
Nicole’s family grew and her three beautiful boys taught her much about determination, relationships and love. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to start her own cleaning company at age 28 and, as it grew, she was able to employ and empower several women.
However busy and full her life became, the call of the horses was always there like a whisper deep within. A friend had a beautiful barn and offered to lease one of her horses to Nicole. This time she was able to share her passion with her sons. They would clean stalls together, ride and have a great time. And still the call of the horses grew stronger.
Nicole found a powerful new way of connecting with horses through FEEL (Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning) ®. Partnering with horses from a place of heart, Nicole became inspired to help others to connect to themselves and find healing.
This time Nicole knew where the call of the horses was leading her. She enrolled in the FEEL training program. As a Certified FEEL Practitioner, Nicole has found her calling. She is passionate about helping heal human hearts with the help of these magical horses. Nicole offers private sessions for individuals as well as small group workshops. She loves working with children and families.
