Horses are masters at identifying what we need at any given moment. If we are in doubt or not clear of our intentions, the horse can educate us in how we are in the present moment. Horses exude a mystical quality. Horses help you become emotionally empowered, gain heightened spiritual awareness and rejuvenate your life's purpose. Horses comfort children through unconditional love.
Everyone that experiences healing with horses, notices something special about the facility. It is more than the horses peacefully grazing and the beautiful palisades on this historical land, it's a sense of serenity and healing.
