Abby Moreland was raised in Wyoming, at the base of the Big Horn Mountains. The gift of her surroundings allowed her to become the authentic leader she is today, sharing the gifts of time, freedom, and space with all those who enter Cottonwood. In 2007, Abby met her husband, Mark. When he took her to his home in Decker, Montana, a rush of peace flooded her heart and she knew this was home. For several years, they ran the ranch together and grew as a couple. It might sound strange, but she felt the horses helped both grow into amazing parents, lovers, and business partners. All those memes about “Before you marry a person, you should first work cows with them to see who they really are,” are so true! Ranching takes patience and persistence. It is not for the faint of heart. In 2019, they shifted into a perspective of abundance, and started doing we what they love. Cottonwood Ranch became home to Cottonwood Equine Coaching in June 2019. And now their ranch opens a space where people can come work with the animals and share that rush of freedom that she has always cherished.
