Our mission at Wells Family Farm is to provide a safe and supportive environment where veterans, individuals and families can come to participate in various activities that teach about self-reliance; becoming more resilient to transitions and challenges that occur in life; and learn about mental and emotional fitness and how it can help strengthen marriages and create a thriving family dynamic.
One way we accomplish this is through the equestrian program at Desiree Wells Coaching where participants interact with horses to learn Life Lessons on:
• clear communication
• healthy leadership and partnership
• letting go of fears and anxiety
• developing resiliency
• building self-concept and becoming more confident
• setting and upholding boundaries
• strengthening marriage and families
We offer private and group sessions as well as host community events that include: marriage and family retreats; “Life Lessons through Horses” summer camps; and we travel to present live events at your barn or in your community.
And for those who want to elevate their competitive performance, Desiree brings over 35 years of experience as a professional competitor, trainer and instructor to work with you on developing your skills while acquiring a Performance Mastery Mindset that helps you succeed each and every time you enter the show ring.
ABOUT THE COACHES
DESIREE: As a life-long professional equestrian, a Master Certified Life Coach, and a military spouse who is passionate about the family dynamic, I specialize in working with children and families to equip them with life skills and tools through learning from interactions with horses that help create accountability; define and set healthy boundaries; cultivate leadership and partnership; develop self-confidence, and promote healthy decision making.
With my extensive background in both the Western competition arena through 4-H, PRCA Rodeo Queening, and Open Quarter Horse Shows.....and in Dressage and Eventing where I have earned my USDF Bronze Medal and USCTA Bronze Medal, I also bring with me Mary Wanless “Ride with your Mind” techniques as well as ground work taught by Manolo Mendez as we work on refining your skills both physically and mentally to improve your performance.
SIDNEY: As a military veteran and Harvard Certified Alternate Dispute Resolution Coach, I support veterans and families who are experiencing transitions in life that may challenge their resilience. I help you identify what may be holding you back that you may not recognize, then I help you create a plan that assists you to thrive during those challenges – and in everyday life – as you gain an awareness of what you really have control over and strengthen those areas.
It is through my love of the farm life and being self-reliant that I combine my passion for helping individuals and families to work with you in fun and creative ways as you participate in everyday farm chores and building projects. This provides the opportunity for you to learn more about who you are by the way you react and respond to situations that are presented, gain insight into options you have in the way you can respond, then take those life lessons into your home and marriage.
