Kris Robins is a clinical social worker and has been participating in programs that pair horses with men and women who are experiencing personal challenges, such as post-traumatic stress injury, since 2012. She has been volunteering in Monty Roberts’ Horse Sense and Healing Program and has had the pleasure of assisting Monty with the development of the program’s guidebook as well as doing numerous training events for the Certified Instructors and staff. Kris has a deep affinity for horses and believes that horse-to-human counseling is often far more effective than human-to-human counseling. She has utilized her own horses in service to others for many years and also lends her skills to other programs that utilize the healing power of the horse. Kris has recently developed and piloted a South African program for people in addictions recovery that utilizes horses to reinforce key treatment concepts. Kris is an organizational development trainer and consultant in private practice & belongs to the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers. She teaches for a variety of Colleges and Universities and has invited many senior leaders & employees to study advanced leadership principles while working in the round pen with equine instructors. Kris and her husband, Doug live in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada and spend most of their free time with their four-legged boys who continue to teach them about the remarkable capacities of horses.
