What you'll do

Healing with horses can take many forms and is as unique as each individual who experiences this process. Since this is done in the moment experientially the knowledge gained is not just mentally understood but fully integrated into the person. We use the combined wisdom and intuition of the facilitator and their equine partner to guide you through your experience. Because of their size, gentle natures and ability to connect we have come to realize that they can teach us to communicate better, create safe and respectful boundaries, and be better leaders. In this experience of self awareness and an exploration of your authentic self you will gain a better understanding of your mind/body connection.

You will choose your horse for the experience and start with a time of reflective grooming while building a relationship with your horse. You will engage in an activity of mindfulness with the focus on the emotions of you and your horse. With non-verbal communication you will discover your leadership strengths and your ability to set comfortable boundaries. With their mere presence horses can heal us, make whole that which was fragmented and restore that which was lost...

I have worked with horses on my farm for over 45 years and have bred, ridden, trained and raced thoroughbred horses. As a teenager I was bullied until I got my first horse and was healed emotionally. Since 2008 I have been helping people heal with horses with Equine Assisted Learning as a Certified Life Coach and Certified EAGALA Professional. My greatest joy is to share my love of horses with others and allow them to experience the emotional healing that comes from interacting with these Angels in Horsehair. As Winston Churchill said “The outside of a horse is good for the inside of man.
