Equine Applied Learning

 LOVE HORSES?
Find Healing at Living Life Ranch


It’s proven that abuse kills your true sense of trust. Horses communicate through body language, and they practice social skills of acceptance, tolerance, kindness, patience, forgiveness and compassion. A horse can read human body language and sense how you are feeling. This is what has made all of us here at Living Life Ranch fall in love with horses.  We can see the great gift they have with people durning the process of Equine Applied Learning. We have been certified through Elaine Davis’s program, Faith Based Equine Assisted Philosophy. Through Equine Applied Learning, we have seen individuals begin the healing process as they develop coping skills through the uplifting therapeutic interaction. We have especially seen a change in children. We couple this with the truth of God’s word, empowering them and helping them with a renewed hope for life.

Horses have played a vital part in my life. My first horse, Lobo, was given to me at the age of 16 and began my journey of discovering peace and joy when I was with her. As I grew, my passion for horses also grew and I knew that horses would always be a part of my life. As I began the hard work of processing trauma in my life, I realized how being around the horses was a catalyst to my healing journey. I decided I needed to get the training necessary so that I could share what I had been given. I became a certified life coach and faith-based learning facilitator. The Ranch is designed to be a safe place, full of God’s love and I have found my purpose in life. The best part for me is seeing the good that has come from sharing the horses with people who need some joy, peace, and healing in their lives.

Living Life Ranch started out as a safe place for me and my son to heal. We volunteered our time just so we could spend a moment with the horses. I was in awe as I watched my son, who had many medical issues, gain confidence as he learned to care for and eventually train these majestic creatures. I recognized, through my time on The Ranch, that God was teaching me powerful lessons about who Jesus created me to be and who God is. I decided I needed to get the training necessary so that I could share what I had been given. I became a certified life coach and faith-based learning facilitator.  I love showing up for these sessions as I watch Jesus bring His healing power and hope-giving love time and time again to people.
