For twenty years we've been working with horses and human partnership initiatives. Results have demonstrated, a better sense of well being, better relationships with family, friends, community; an increased awareness of our place in nature and overall sense of calmness and peacefulness.
Days are offered to guests both featuring ground work and riding in the beautiful woods of Kentucky's rolling hill. Proceeds support youth and family camps throughout the year. Interfacing with our herd in an open free range setting is a day to remember.
Dr. Thecla Helmbrecht Howard was chosen as 2014 Kentucky wise woman of the year for her ability to bring horses and humans together therapeutically. It is a day you will not forget.

This is NOT your typical trail ride, but SO MUCH MORE!!! I was looking for a therapeutic experience to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, but I had been traumatized by a BAD accident on horseback years earlier. This 6-hour experience was SO edifying and HEALING on so MANY levels! These horses are well-loved, and love YOU well in response. "Dr. T" (Thecla) was incredibly engaged with everyone throughout the day, and her passion and compassion were completely contagious! I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

An unique & wonderful experience. We particularly appreciated the time taken to connect with our horses and groom them before we went on the ride. We felt so taken care of the whole day. Welcoming, organic, “wholemeal”, profound & yet down to earth! So highly recommended!
