Our Mission

Our mission is to set the standard of professional excellence in how horses and humans can communicate, bond and work in unison to transform the quality of life and mental health of individuals, families and groups. The horse, with its heightened instinctive intelligence, is the central teacher and head of our family of human growth programs.

“Horses do not see us as our collective stories but simply as we are standing in front of them. The horse brings its uncanny ability to peel our egos back, to strip the layers away like an onion, until we find ourselves awkwardly naked and vulnerable. But the horse also shows us the joy that comes from living with the bare truth of ourselves. What a gift that is.” 

~ Zen Horse, Zen Mind, Dr. Allan Hamilton
