Ann-Britt Bolinder – Gustavsborg PRE
Leigh’s love and passion for horses were kindled when she was five years old. Her Dad took her to visit a friend’s ponies and from that day forward, horses were a part of her life. If she wasn’t dreaming of horses, she was drawing them, riding or collecting them.
As an adult, Leigh’s passion for animals continued. While her career took her into the corporate world, her home was on acreage with dogs, a donkey, and horses she adopted over the years. Leigh honed her business skills, first in law firms as a paralegal, then as an Assistant Corporate Secretary for an energy company and finally for a governance consulting business. In 2007, while working at the energy company she went back to school and obtained a B.A. Integrated Liberal Arts and Business Studies Program from Simon Fraser University.
Over the years, there were some major personnel changes in her life and Leigh gradually retreated into herself and shut down her emotions. As she spent more time with her horses and became grounded Leigh started to ‘feel’ life again, with renewed mental and physical energy.
In 2016, Leigh decided to take some time off work to help with some family matters. During this time she came across the program to become a facilitator in Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning®. Becoming a FEEL Practitioner was a life-changing journey that allowed Leigh to partner with her horses and fully develop her intuitive skills and compassion and live her best life!
