Marie Hancock - Owner and Founder - Equine Specialist

Certified in the EAGALA Model

 Marie was raised in North Dakota and has worked with horses since the age of 7. From a young age she realized how healing horses can be for youth. As a senior in high school she dreamed of making a difference in people's lives with the amazing power horses. It took her 10 years to get there, but  in 2012 she started working with a therapist and implementing horses in a therapeutic session. In 2013 she was certified in the EAGALA Model as an Equine Specialist.  That year in April she opened Colorado Equine Specialist LLC. Her vision is to educate therapists in the Denver area about the benefits of equine therapy, and empower anyone who is struggling.  Marie has a particular interest in our Military Service Members. As a spouse of a Veteran, she has had a first hand experience, of military life, and all the challenges it brings.   .

Cinco-

Cinco joined the team in June 2014, and our sessions have not been the same since. He is so goofy, and his positive attitude is contagious. He is 7 years old and a Quarter Horse.
