Growing up with horses made Anne who she is today – a skilled horse woman, an award-winning riding instructor, a compassionate energy healer, and an intuitive equine therapy practitioner. Through her personal experience and decades of professional practice Anne has seen how horses open people’s hearts and minds to insights that they may not be able to imagine on their own.
Anne has been training horses and riders for 30 years. Since 1999 she has owned and operated Campbell’s Lane Farm in Preston, Maryland. At the farm Anne and her team have trained horses and coached riders who have gone on to earn ribbons and develop self-confidence. Campbell’s Lane Farm is now the home base for Insight Equine Therapy and Anne’s practice of transformative healing.
Anne studied massage therapy at the Southeastern School of Massage in Jacksonville, Florida. A graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing she combines high-sense perception and hands-on techniques to help clients discover the psychological, physical, emotional, and spiritual blocks that create “dis-ease” in their lives. She is also certified in the EAGALA process of equine therapy.
In 2020 Anne became a founding steward of The Starcast Alliance…a conscious engagement of Nature, Animal, Human and Cosmic Intelligences.
Caroline grew up in Sweden, where she spent every spare moment in a small animal vet clinic. As a young girl she dreamed of owning a horse. She began riding in high school and, when she had enough money and time, she made horses the center of her life and her life’s work. She discovered natural horsemanship, a process that taught her how to communicate with a horse using the horse’s language.
Her career as a certified Natural Horsemanship instructor began in Italy, where she made her way around the country working with as many different horses and people as possible to broaden her experience. With Caroline’s guidance her students develop trust with a horse through body language, touch, and self-awareness. She has honed the skill of paying attention to details and teaches her students to do the same. Lessons progress from natural horsemanship theory and ground work to riding.
She now lives in Turks & Caicos Islands, where she manages Provo Ponies.

Anne Altvater and Patricia Pfost welcome you to Self-Awareness through the Mirror of Horses.
"Anne is the voice of reason. She always gives it to me straight with no chaser, which is just what I need. I just feel my blood pressure drop when I look into the horse’s eyes.”
“With the help of Anne and her horses I was able to look through the surface to the heart of what was going on. It was like the horse was a part of me; she was so majestic, so tender and soft. She was a mirror image of me.”
"Working with Anne allowed me to tap into some emotions that I can work on in my personal and professional life."
"My experience watching a client participate in Insight Equine Therapy was truly amazement! It was clear that this modality allowed the client to get to the root of what she was struggling with in a few minutes versus a few sessions."
"My Insight Equine Therapy experience validated for me the limits, at times, of talk therapy and needing other modalities to maximize treatment benefits."
