Welcome to another year with
Harmony and Healing with Horses.
In the past 12 months I've found the courage and inspiration to spread my wings and try so many new things. I've also made it a personal challenge to always set my sites on something new and to reach out to more people throughout the year. In late spring I plan to offer a course at the local community college entitled "How to Talk Horse". Each of the two hour sessions will educate students about the unique characteristics of the horse including their social structure, individual personalities and communication. It will emphasize the similarities between humans and horses as a way to educate and inspire people toward positive growth in their life. It will be offered over 4 sessions in late May and early June as part of LCC's adult education program. I'm also hoping to offer more Equine Assisted Learning workshops for local groups and have begun working with the Americorp Volunteers of Cowlitz County on a day of team building activities. And, in the future I plan to bring horses and health care professionals together in a workshop I'm calling "How to Talk Horse for Healers". As a former health professional, I know how important it is to enhance the skills of this group, including better communication, compassion and empathy through the natural wisdom and intuition of the horse.
Centered Riding instruction will continue with several new students joining the herd. I look forward to traveling to Grapeview, WA for ongoing lessons at the Sunrise Stables and to a new student in Liberty training in Beavercreek, Oregon.
And if you're looking for a way to create positive change in the New Year, take advantage of the first two sessions of "How to Talk Horse-Lead Mare" absolutely FREE!

And most importantly, I'd like to thank all of the wonderful people who made 2015 such a success, including my friends and the amazing owners of Whispering Willow Ranch, Tracy and George Moore, my friends Raeann, Janice and Jessica for always being there for me when I needed you especially in the beginning when I was creating HHH and to my students and new friends that have shared in lessons, workshops, volunteering and WOWW gatherings-I hope to see you in the New Year-you are always in my heart!
See you around the barn,
