Diane, I am writing to you today to thank you, CC, Spring, Syri and Dane for the most amazing experience at the farm this past weekend! I am so grateful to have met you wonderful ladies and the beautiful horses; the work you do is truly a gift and I was honored to have been able to spend some time with you.
I slept really well for the past 2 nights, which is a real gift in itself. The breathing exercises and and reflection on my time with those amazing creatures will certainly be helpful in my toolbox to deal with the pain and worry that accompany my new set of circumstances!
I was so taken with the work that you do, and the story of how you came to be in such a sacred, beautiful place!
I do look forward to coming back again soon to spend some more time with you and the horses. It was a transformative experience that has helped me in my healing journey, and I am most grateful!
One of the most powerful days of my life! Truly an incredible experience. The people there were tremendously NON judgmental, tender without pity, they work as a unit and I walked away with a new sense of freedoms I have longed for my entire life.
When I find myself in a panic and even horrible pain , physical pain as well as heartache I chant to myself... breathe like a horse breathe like a horse. It works like magic for me. I was skeptical but my love of horses and my friend (photos taken by her) I figured why not if nothing else I will see and pet beautiful horses . However the joke was on me.
It changed me... it did something hard to explain.... it centered me in a calm space of pure and utter peace. Tears spilled like I never imagined but left me open to be and receive a new way to cope. I am forever grateful for my day on this stunning beautiful amazing ranch! It never occurred to me that a horse could change the way I think .... but it has.
I have suffered from extreme panic attacks and PTS for all of my life. I won't lie and tell anyone it all disappeared that day or even today. It did however change the way I think when panic comes my way. I have new tools that actually work!
I wish I lived out East I'd volunteer my time just to 've in the presence of these amazing beasts and these incredible humans that took such care of me on that truly amazing day!
