"I learned to be more aware of my own body language and energy.  Ruby (the horse) was patient with my hesitancies and confusion.  She made  me feel calm."

OUR TEACHERS ARE 600-1500 LBS.

Whether it’s working with your own horse, or one of our horses in these programs, our experiential services offer people an opportunity for self-discovery and self-realization of the skills needed to meet not only the task or challenge at hand, but their own personal life challenges, great or small. Here at Grace Acres, the horses are the teachers.

WHY WORK WITH PREY ANIMALS?

As a prey animal, horses provide an experience of connecting to our own intuitive voice, they react to our authentic thoughts and feelings, and therefore, aspire us to better understand ourselves. Horses require us to access the leadership within, in order to be a leader to them, to another human, or to ourselves. Our programming does not offer “therapy”, however, people will complete objectively-driven activities, feeling similar rewarding affects. These programs can be considered the ‘bridge’ between outside ‘therapy’ sessions and re-entering real life. Our programs help to build confidence, establish a partnership of trust, empowerment, willingness, the life skills to face challenges, responsibility and much more.

HOW DOES THIS PROGRAM WORK?

 

These programs build relationships - with yourself, the horse and others. We offer a beautiful, peaceful and safe learning environment where possibilities for personal growth and well-being are endless.
