Alli Caraveo is a stay-at-home mom, first-generation rancher, entrepreneur and Equine Gestaltist™. She pursued her lifelong love for animals by getting her Veterinary Technology degree in 2012. During that time, she was building a family and a ranch with her future husband. 

They lived in a camper off grid for 4 years while pursuing their dreams of a ranch and a home of their very own. Alli and her husband built a home and a barn from scratch while growing a direct-to-consumer meat business and heavy equipment repair business. During this time, Alli was looking for a way to integrate horses and healing while working from her ranch on a schedule that would allow her to be home with her kids. This is when she found the Touched by a Horse ™ program. 

She started this intensive program in January 2020 and walked through the rest of the pandemic, moving a ranch 2 states away, losing that ranch, and having to find another that would fit her family. 

Currently, Alli and her family are enjoying the slow life of Central Montana while enjoying a life they have always dreamed of. She has opened up a retreat center and an Equine Gestalt Coaching business where she and her horses help others walk through deep disappointment, life transitions, trauma, and healing.
