Melissa Bieber, the 'Natural Horse Healer' is a trainer and healer who specializes in communication and healing of horse related physical and emotional challenges, so you can enjoy the best your horse has to give you.
Melissa has a lifetime of experience with horses and other animals.
She has been specializing in natural horsemanship training, behavior management and healing for over fifteen years.
Melissa began her career with horses as a young child while growing up on a horse and cattle ranch in South Dakota. When not doing cattle work on horseback, she spent her time riding across the countryside and showing horses most of the summer weekends in 4H, open shows and in Paint and Quarter Horse Shows.
Melissa graduated from Northern State University in 1990 with a B.S. degree in Psychology and Sociology and a minor in Criminal Justice. While attending college she spent several years Interning at a Shelter and Resource Center for Battered Women and Children.
Melissa graduated from Hamline University School of Law in 1994. While in law school, she Interned at the Ramsey County Public Defenders Office representing low income and troubled Youth, and also assisted student residents at Hamline University. Melissa Interned for several years at a small law firm in Wisconsin. In 1995 she opened her own law practice in Becker, Minnesota. Her practice includes Equine Law as well as other specialties.
Melissa established her own horse ranch in 1996. She continued to show on the local and breed show circuits in all disciplines. She raises, trains, and provides all the care for many horses, specializing in ponies, paints, and quarter horses.
In 2004, she created an internship program for youth to learn natural horsemanship and training skills. Melissa is also a riding lesson instructor and she has many years of experience working directly with people at all skill and experience levels their and horses, including scared people and problem horses. In her free time, she enjoys reading, attending classes and seminars, trail riding, barrel racing, and anything else to do with horses.
Melissa's focus has been working directly on the subject of animal behavior, training and performance from a different and unique vantage point (the horses and the owners).
She has the 'gift' for connecting directly with the animal and they respond to her almost immediately. In addition to training, Melissa knew that animals had their own opinion and knowledge of what they needed and were happy to share it. She also came to realize that they wanted to enjoy their relationship with their owner as much as the owner did. Sometimes that meant something needed to be changed, healed or possibly the release of an old trauma that the horse had experienced so it could move forward.
Melissa's unique approach, called 'Horse Harmonization', has proved to be very successful and she's glad to have been able to serve so many happy owners and horses over the years.
Her healing and training techniques are unique, non-invasive, comforting and effective and she offers her services over the phone, on her ranch or, when possible, travels to your site.
