Our Mission is to facilitate personal, professional, spiritual growth and healing through experiential learning in partnership with horses
Horses are majestic beings who can ground us in the depths of our spiritual essence and teach us how to find our way back to what is authentic and true within our own lives and in community with others.
Horses live in a highly structured social group. As animals of
prey, horses depend on their herd for survival and have cultivated a profound
sensitivity to those around them in order to be alert to danger. Horses
use their whole body to sense and interpret their environment.
They respond to
both positive and negative changes in posture, stance, and breathing to other
herd members- horse and human alike. Therefore, horses provide constant
feedback with their body and behavior. Horses get noticeably uncomfortable with
the slightest incongruity of emotion and intention,yet calm down the moment
the emotion is acknowledged.
At the same time, they are exceedingly patient and
forgiving. Horses are facilitators in the work of human development and teachers
in the art of living authentically. They do not hold on to what happened
yesterday or even five minutes ago. They
respond honestly in the moment and then go back to grazing
Horses are consummate teachers of basic life
skills and living authenticity.
They mirror our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
Interactions with horses model human transactions
communities and families
Horses are compassionate leaders.
They are highly sensitive to the body language of
other herd members.
They rely on their instincts to communicate
They respond honestly in the present without
judging and holding
on to the past.
Deep and profound healing is possible just by
being in their presence.
