About Crystal Pollard
Horses have always been my solace. I have always been obsessed with them. Whether it was turning everything I could (my bike, couch, friends!) into horses, or biking 5 miles to volunteer at the local dude ranch when I was 12.
During school I'd spend my lunches in the library reading every horse book I could get my hands on. In class I'd get in trouble for hiding horse books behind the books I was supposed to read. I got my first horse when I was 15 and began working with them full time shortly after. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings of varying disciplines and breeds. Some of the horse fields I have worked in are trail riding, grooming for Dressage, hunter/jumper and polo riders and trainers, breeding barns, boarding barns among many others. I have always been drawn to horses and have known since I was little this is what I wanted to do.
I have also always been drawn to alternative therapies and energy work. My mom was in a motorcycle accident in 2007 and became a quadriplegic. She was in the hospital a couple years later with pretty bad pneumonia. I was visiting the room and a man from her church came in and was doing Reiki on her. I saw that and immediately wanted to learn it to help horses.
I got the information from him of his instructor and took courses as soon as I could. A little over a year later I became master certified. I learned Reiki on people, but apply it to horses and other animals. Throughout the years I have been molding my energy work more and more with my training and lessons.
I love sharing my passion with other people and helping to teach them better communication with these magnificent animals. I love empowering the future generations with the ability to focus on their breath and become present and mindful.
With the Reiki side of my business I love being able to help horses feel better. They take on a lot of baggage from us and I'm thankful I am able to help them with that.
