This was far beyond what I expected. Being with your horses was powerfully therapeutic.... today's experience deeply motivated me.   -Hyun

​I feel as if I was offered (and accepted) very deep healing on many levels.  -Karen

I could never have imagined that an animal could be such a healer and a "guide" for us humans.  -Carla

I realized how easy it was to find the answers by connecting with the horses rather than by analyzing and seeking answers with other humans. -Sharon
