Our Mission

Our mission is to partner with horses and bring you hope and healing, accelerated personal growth as well as increased awareness so that you can become a more effective influence, first in your own life and then in the lives of those you love, serve and work with. Our mission is to help you own your assignment as a powerful, positive world changer!

Our Story

 We have a passion to partner with horses, who accelerate our growth and learning curve, increase awareness of the way each of us influences those around us, and we encourage and support each other as we make choices that might involve difficult change. 

Our personal, ultimate goal is to be transformed into the image of Christ & to Love the Lord our God with all of our Heart, Mind, Soul and Strength.

(Mark 12:30)
