Sara and her horses have been a very welcome much needed respite and intervention for me during the last year. I fully appreciate Sara's stellar knowledge with horses and how to work with horses and the client to bring what is needed to the table to help shift, manage and or heal ones own challenges in personal or professional life. Sara knows her horses well and I feel very comfortable being out there with no real prior equine experience. I love that Sara not only is a great listener to what I may need to share but she also is awesome in teaching me how to learn and care for the horses. From the moment I met Sara , she has a gentle, patient and very kind nature and speaks with calm and ease to me and the horses and is always a welcoming spirit to me. I am forever grateful to Sara and her gifts of treasure of her self and her horses. Being out with Sara and her horses is liken to me a piece of Heaven....Its Glorious!!
My name is Kayla Moore, I am 28 years old and I have been diagnosed with anxiety disorder and OCD. I was desperately in search of some sort of therapy to help me cope with my frequent panic attacks and life altering anxiety. I had tried traditional therapy a few times, but nothing was really working the way I had hoped. My sister, who has similar mental health issues, began the search for a therapy program that involved animals.
The bond that I have formed with these horses is so incredibly special to me. Being able to ground myself alongside these beautiful creatures, but at the same time bring past traumas to the forefront and work through them day by day has been so healing. With the emotional and mental guidance from Sara through breathwork exercises, therapeutic riding, and connecting spiritually to one another as well as the horses, has made the most amazing impact on my life. I went from having severe panic attacks almost every night, to going on almost 7 months now without having one at all. I have been able to do things I have always wanted to do in life that I was always too afraid to try before. I was constantly telling myself I couldn’t do it, that I would always have these problems and I would never be able to overcome them. I have completely turned my life around..
In June of 2021, I found myself searching the internet for equine therapy that was not only
affordable, but felt approachable. I spent hours looking through programs only to find that they
weren't the right fit for me. Though, I was still
nervous that this wouldn't be somewhere I could be myself comfortably. I was so wrong. When I
first started coming to the ranch weekly, I was focusing on my anxiety and how equine therapy
could benefit my life. Learning breathing techniques, doing clicker training, and meditating
alongside the horses helped more than I could imagine. I even recommended the program to
my sister, who began attending sessions with me regularly as well. Now, almost a year later,
have formed very close bonds with many of the horses, and have seen the impact that this
program has made on my life. I continue to go and spend time with them weekly and give a
hand on the ranch whenever possible.
