Bettina Shultz-Jobe, LPC

Natural Lifemanship
Co-Founder and CEO

“This is legacy work at it’s best, y’all!”

With more than 20 years of experience partnering people and horses to bring about healing, growth, and transformation for horse and human alike, Bettina Shultz-Jobe is passionate about discovering and utilizing the horse’s full potential for helping humans.

Bettina teaches and empowers others to do the same through the process and the practice of Trauma Informed Equine Assisted Therapy and Learning.

In 2010, Bettina and her husband, Tim Jobe, founded the Natural Lifemanship Institute on the principles of connected relationships—with self, with others, with horses and other animals, with the Divine, and with our natural world.

A pioneer in the field of Equine Assisted Services, she believes that healing, growth, and transformation begins when people and horses form deep connections, free from power, domination, and control.
