To Begin

When we began looking for what to call what it is that we do, and who we are, there is no better answer than the word horse.  The one who has the answers.  We asked ourselves so which word representing horse do we use, the French, the German, the Spanish, the Italian, or..  and why would we use one before the other.  Then we discovered there was a language that came before any of them. 

Our job, our purpose is to heal the horse.  

To protect what is there, to heal what has already been damaged, to encourage free-flowing powerful movement without restrictions, without limitations.

To welcome and protect their voice. 

To gently ask for the privilege of their friendship.

To respect the wisdom they hold.

To be the protector. To be the teacher.  To be the student forever more.

 

 

 

When Life is About the Possibilities That You ALLOW

To take a hold of your HEART and your imagination

 

"If the work is not joyful & transformative... you've missed the lesson of the horse"

You've missed the lesson of life.

 

 

We offer instructor programs for those who want to go on to teach others how to ride exquisitely from the very beginning and also for those who will never teach others to climb on a horse's back ever but instead see the possibilities that exist when we bring human and horse together whether that is in an Equine Assisted Learning or Facilitated Program or in a meditation or mindfulness program. The possibilities are actually endless.

Yet the more any of us learn, the more perhaps we can be surprised to discover how inter-related these studies might possibly be. 'Your choice' to what extent you wish to specialize in certain Fields of Study and how you may want to combine the areas of study available. Yet we may gently suggest that you consider certain fields that you may not have previously considered relevant. The instructor who teaches someone to climb on the back of the horse may see little value in our mindfulness programs, only to discover that perhaps there is more here than they ever realized and the instructor who is eager to become involved with an equine-assisted learning program may see little value in studying the Healthy Movement of the Horse and both would end up missing something.

There are a lot of reasons for this, but here is an example to consider.

 

"These horses [running free] are so incredibly alive. 

Their sensitivity, their awareness, their openness to being aware, connected to everything is so invigorating, even inspiring. I think that is why I feel so incredibly connected to life and nature when I am with them here along the lakes, but sadly the opposite is so true when I am with other horses.  It breaks my heart how shut down they are in comparison.  How turned off they are. It actually hurts to be around them sometimes. 

But change is possible.  

One rider astounded with what these new ways of working with her horse has done for her horse, stood in the center of the arena watching her horse moving forward in an invigorating bold trot, and began softly crying, tears quietly coursing down her face and said softly into the silence as we watched: "He has come alive!"  

 

You find INSPIRATION

As we and our horses reach for our POTENTIAL ~All the POSSIBILITIES are there to discover.

 "Always have a dream that is longer than a lifetime,"  

"Be loving, be hopeful, be optimistic. Together we can build the world of our dreams."

"Don't let anyone tell you it can't be done."

 

These are words that speak directly to my heart and the work that we are trying to do here.

All my life, I have heard the words that "it can't be done."

But sometimes the trying is more important than the achieving. Sometimes something is so important that not to try, is wrong somehow.

Maybe it can't be done, maybe there are things that take longer than a lifetime. Sacrifices have to be made, endless hours of work that are required, but if there are enough people who are part of the dream things can happen.
