Sharon Wilsie has enjoyed a professional career as a horse trainer/rehabilitation specialist, intercollegiate coach, and riding instructor. She has also been a Reiki Master/Teacher since 1992. Wilsie has developed and implemented a number of programs over the last decade, including volunteer training groups for horse rescues and therapeutic riding centers, Equine Assisted Learning courses, and hundreds of workshops and seminars relating to Equine Facilitated Therapies, alternative training methodologies, and rehabilitation methods for difficult horses and horses with PTSD. Wilsie has worked with students from all ages, including at-risk youth programs. Her passion for helping both people and horses understand themselves and each other better led her to develop the system called "Horse Speak®" and the book of the same name, which has become an international bestseller translated into six languages, including German, Dutch, Japanese, French, Italian, and Polish. She is also the author of Horses in Translation and the DVD and streaming program Horse Speak: First Conversations (sharonwilsie.com).
