Hello there!

My name is Christina Marz. Thank you for sharing this space with me. I live for 20 years in the northern Andes of Ecuador, on my dream farm that I built for my three boys, 6 horses, many dogs and 2 cats who rule over all of us. 

My mission in life is to help people find healing for themselves and others through the wisdom of horses. 

As part of my work I lead retreats, mentor emerging entrepreneurs, teach Life Coaching with Horses worldwide, write books and serve as an advisor for institutions from Argentina to the United Arabian Emirates.

My work is a result of everything I have learned and experienced in my life, including 18+ years as a mother, 30+ years of practice in rehabilitating horses and 44+ years as a member of a complicated birth family.

Life coaching with horses

I am most grateful when I support others in their healing, or when I help colleagues build a sustainable, 6-figure service offer with their herds.

In my private life, I can be found admiring the views of my farm, discussing Star Wars with my 3 boys, reading a lot, and avoiding grocery shopping.

Giving back and helping those in crisis has always been a big motivator for me. Therefore, my non-profit organization Sin Miedo© (“No Fear”) provides emotional support and trauma mitigation in Imbabura, Ecuador.

I am curious, self-directed and a little obsessed with my two passions, horses and holistic psychology. My family is my motivator and my herd is my haven. I want to make emotional health accesible to everyone and when I want something, I usually make it happen. Stay tuned.
