Happy 4th of July!

The greatest gifts you can give your children are
the roots of Responsibility and the wings of Independence.
~ Denis Waitley


Earlier in June...

Our 3rd Annual
“Train the Trainers” for dedicated Equine Gestalt Coaching Method  (EGCM®) graduate practitioners who are learning how to work with veterans. Expanding our outreach in this way allows maximum use of our time, talent and treasures. This comprehensive course prepares practitioners to work with all veterans and active military. 

Three of the four days, practitioners got to hear Veterans Speak

A commendation from a participant:
“I was so impressed with the knowledge I gained form the Horses For Heroes. Training! As a therapist with a solid foundation in trauma work, I was not prepared for how much I would learn about both trauma and the specific experience unique to military veterans in both men and women. Nancy was an impressive presenter and trainer, offering a wealth of wisdom and experience in a very interactive and meaningful way. The horses, the veteran presenters and the circle of safety that I experienced created a rich learning environment and a lasting impression.”   ~ Heather Kirby, LCSW, CSAC, M.Ed
