About Us

Meet Krista Brown and Her Team

Hi, I'm Krista, 'lead mare' at Wisdom of the Horse Coaching




I've always been a truth-seeker with an unquenchable thirst for meaning.


Deep meaning.


I love juicy, authentic reflections, conversations and connections.


The kind that lays bare the frailties of our shared human experience.


I have a devoted bleeding heart for the animal kingdom, a deep reverence for the natural world, an unwavering commitment to my spiritual and soul path, and infinite respect for fellow journeyers who choose to endure the sharp pains of self-discovery rather than the dull pain of unconsciousness.


My personal path lead to the discovery of my passion and purpose at midlife as a certified Equine Guided Facilitator (Chiron's Way) , professional Life & Leadership Coach (Erickson International), and retreat owner where I guide and empower the lives of my clients through deep soul work.

Welcome.  I’m so glad you’re here.



Meet my Team

Our equine partners are an integral part of life at our retreat center, Wisteria Acres. Whether they are providing a peaceful backdrop to quiet moments of reflection, teaching us simple life lessons, or guiding individuals on their own inward journey, they are all valued for their special contributions.


Our wise sage. 


Cricket is a 16 year old Quarter Horse mare whose calm and steadfast ways offer a grounding presence to the herd and our space.


Cricket is a gentle and masterful teacher.  A perfectly timed nicker or a deep soulful gaze from her big brown eyes lets you know that it is safe to show up fully and authentically in this space.  And with a nudge of her nose she will remind you to “let go and let’s go!” You’ve wasted enough time on those outdated belief systems.  It’s time to blaze a new trail!



Dubbed the “Mr. Ed” of Wisteria Acres.

Romeo is an 13 year old, Paint, gelding whose shenanigans keep us all entertained. His bright and impish eyes gleam a mischievousness that is both heart-warming and challenging.  He’s spirited, he’s playful and he loves to push the boundaries of life …and invites you to do the same!

Romeo’s big presence commands your attention all the while inviting you to look beyond your fears to the well-spring of strength and courage that is yours to tap into in any moment, in any situation.

Cassiopeia (Cassi)

The heart of our herd and sacred space holder.

Cassi is a 12 year old Paint mare whose sweet and tender soul captures the heart of so many who come to Wisteria Acres.

She embodies a sweet innocence with a very tender heart. Cassi reminds us of the need to be vulnerable during these changing times and to always be gentle with yourself as you’re learning to navigate these new trails. Always lead with your heart.



Our matriarch.

Rayne is a 20 year old Quarter Horse mare and ruler of the roost.

A somewhat serious girl, Rayne reminds us of the importance of taking a stand for our self and the life we wish to create.  It takes courage and commitment, and the willingness to forge new ground as we align our outer world with our inner soul’s desire.

Where the magic happens: welcome to Wisteria Acres

In a beautiful country setting just outside Fort Langley, British Columbia, Canada, situated high on the bluffs overlooking the historic town and the mighty Fraser River, Wisteria Acres welcomes friends and guests to an oasis of peace and tranquility.

The main retreat house sits under a canopy of old growth cedars. Horses graze in lush pastures, and beautiful gardens beckon you into stillness; a place where quiet awareness and inner wisdom are fostered.
