Equine-assisted work honors the natural behavior of horses and herds. Horses are skilled at keeping themselves safe and adept at survival; their natural behaviors are optimal for mental and physical health. In many respects, humans have lost the instinct to keep themselves safe and healthy. We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and the nonverbal messages we send out. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy implements the power of equine-assisted philosophies and exercises to introduce therapy clients to themselves in a modality that has been found to be more efficient and less threatening than traditional talk therapy. Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is a field of practice based on the successes of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. We have learned that everyone can benefit from equine-assisted work - not just therapy clients. EAL uses equine-assisted philosophies and exercises in a variety of "arenas" from corporate retreats, to church groups, personal coaching, parenting and family dynamics and more!
In Memory of Tyler John Hole.
Tyler lived at the ranch from Jan. 2012 to April 2012. Tyler enjoyed morning devotions and especially enjoyed leading Gods special needs kids around on Gods horses. Tyler's Dad John shared with me Tyler's happiest moments were when he was at the ranch. He also wanted me to share with all of you to help get the word out that HEROIN IS KILLING OUR KIDS, please reach out to anyone you know that is struggling with this drug. share this with them. JESUS CAN AND WILL HEAL THEM if they will COMMIT ALL THEIR WAYS TO HIM, lets not let Tyler's death go in vain.
In a vision during the night, I saw a man sitting on a red horse that was standing among some myrtle trees in a small valley. Behind him were red, brown, and white horses, each with it's own rider. i asked the angel who was talking with me,"My lord, what are all these horses for?" "I will show you," the angle replied. "They are the ones that Lord has sent out to patrol the earth." Zac 1:8-10
