Val met Okzy, a champion Grand Prix dressage horse, at a pre-Olympic trial dressage competition at the San Antonio Rose Palace arena. He was perfect in practice but consistently messed up the show ring. His trainer JP had only one question: Why does this keep happening?!
Okzy explained that he felt angry with JP. Although he loved to perform, was really good at his work, and he basked in the applause of the audience, he was willing to give all that up. He wanted to get back at JP in a way that really hurt and would get her attention. He explained all the reasons why he felt the way he did, and then?
He asked for an apology.
Miffed at the horse, JP offered an insincere apology. Okzy immediately turned away and swished his tail. JP didn’t need Val to translate the horse’s response, it was clear as a bell. Val watched in dismay as JP stormed out of the stall in a huff.
Fifteen minutes later JP returned. She acknowledged that in fact, the horse was right on all the counts. She offered a sincere heart felt apology. And tears sprang to our eyes as Okzy turned to her and nudged JP over her heart as he accepted what was offered. Then they went out and won their next competition.
Val’s specialty is in working with show animals. She got her start as a professional animal communicator working show horses of all kinds including world class Grand Prix dressage horses, world championship cutting horses, hunter jumpers and racing horses.
Val’s Intuitive Show Animal Performance Sessions are unlike those of other animal intuitives.Val begins each communication session in much the same way she approaches a healing or communication session — she connects to the animal’s human caretaker first.
As the human’s advocate for the animal, she must first understand their person’s point of view about what’s going on. She’s learned through her extensive education and many years of experience and learning from thousands of animal teachers that the human is always intimately involved with the well-being of the animal.
While most people are astonished to discover the phenomenon of the Human Animal BodyMind Connection and how their animal partner mirrors them, many aspects of animal performance, health and well-being are in fact a reflection of your purpose together.
To solve these issues, it’s important for Val to start with the human. Until you are able and willing to change, heal, grow and evolve, the animal will continue to serve you by showing and acting out your wounds, stressors and issues.
As Val works with you and your animal to help you solve performance problems, behavior issues, health or mystery lameness situations, she is always listening to the Spirit of the animal and to Guidance to discover why that animal is a part of your life, what the underlying lessons are, what he/she is here to help you learn, and what is needed to create the best life experience and performance for both of you.
Her goal is for you both to achieve your true potential, to get you in the Winner’s Circle, and for you and your animal to have a blast doing it together!
Val’s unique intuitive work and healing skills incorporates all levels of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Working by order of priority, the most exciting part of every session is that both you and your pet can experience amazing changes in your relationship, and that those changes will reflect into other areas of your life including in the show ring.
Together you can evolve into advanced states of love, self expression and embrace an empowered spiritual connection with a deep profound level of understanding of yourself and the world around you.
And that is what it takes to be a winner in every sport, including the game of life.
Note: You do not have to be in the same location or touching each other for her to work her magic.

I set up a session with Val when my cat Abraham (Abie) deteriorated suddenly from what I assumed was the arthritis he had been diagnosed with a year earlier.
Almost overnight he was barely able to move and when he did he growled from pain. He would eat only when I brought his dishes of food and water to his mouth. (Fortunately, he somehow made it to his litter box.) In addition, he quickly developed the symptoms of a cold. I could tell he was in abject misery and I was concerned that he would be permanently incapacitated.
Val said she felt Abie was having a reaction to the routine vaccinations that he had received several months earlier and that his whole body was inflamed. Because of the arthritis, Val told me that Abie’s immune system was compromised and that he shouldn’t have received the vaccines.
Before the session was over, Val gently used BodyTalk to help bring some quick relief to Abie.
Two days after the session with Val, my husband called me at work and said he had found Abie sitting on our living room rug with our other cat Sylvia. Abie got up and walked from our bedroom into the living room to sit on his favorite wool rug by the couch. He would have had to walk a ways to get there. We’re amazed because the night before he was having a hard time even turning around.
A miraculous feat! I don’t really consider myself skeptical but I was shocked by the sudden turn of events. I realized it was a sign that he would heal completely — and he has. Ten weeks later Abie is doing wonderfully and back to his old self.
I am so grateful for Val and her gifts as a healer and a teacher. It has changed my life. I recommend her to anyone that has a pet. You’ll learn more than you could ever imagine. ~ Barbara Koonce
If you just want Val to tell your pet to stop doing bad behavior, but are unwilling to make changes of your own? Then you’re not a good fit.
If you are doing this just for curiosity, to see if Val can tell you the color of your pet’s food bowl? Then you’re not a good fit.
If, however, you are ready to dive deep, to experience a quantum leap in discovery, a breakthrough with your pet and in your own life? Then you may be a perfect fit!
Her work often changes lives on many levels. It can be intensive, entertaining and a lot of fun! It can also bring up old wounds that need healing, stress that needs clearing, pain that needs soothing…
Not to worry, she can help you do that too.
She’ll be working as much with you as your animal to find the real root of the problems, to unravel the Human Animal BodyMind Connection between you, and to up-level you both so you can be the best version of yourselves possible.
