About Carmella Abel

Carmella Abel is a certified equine massage therapist and avid equestrian who has been riding and working with horses for most of her life. As a teenager, she trained in eventing and regularly fox hunted. She believes cross-training is vital to a horse and rider’s success in any riding discipline. She now focuses on trail riding and trains in endurance.

Carmella fell in love with starting young horses when she was 14 years old after purchasing her first project pony, Bella. Her training focuses mainly on groundwork and trail riding, as she believes everything a horse needs to learn can be encountered on the trail. She believes equestrians should be evolutionary, continually learning new and better ways to work and communicate with their horses.

In 2018, Carmella became certified in equine sports massage therapy through Equissaage. She developed an interest in horse anatomy and biomechanics through massage, which she applies to her horse training methods. 

She married Collin Abel in 2017. While he hadn’t grown up around horses, he quickly caught on and is considered the mastermind behind Equine Helper. After working at an online marketing company, they both saw a need for trustworthy horse care and training content geared toward new horse owners. 

Outside of horses, Collin and Carmella love adventure. They have both traveled abroad extensively and enjoy learning about different cultures. A key consideration in creating their horse brand was a shared belief in God and how He can impact others through them. Collin and Carmella graduated from Rhema Bible Training College in 2018 and have worked in staff and volunteer roles in ministry. Carmella has shared and taught how biblical principles apply to every area of life, including horse training.
