There is an incredible power that a
horse possesses to open hearts. They
give clear, relevant, truthful feedback to actions and attitudes while giving
Horses by their very nature struggle
to survive. As prey animals they must be
able to evaluate their surroundings, decide whether it is a safe environment,
and remove themselves from the situation if need arises. If they do not they may leave themselves in a
very vulnerable and dangerous position.
If the attitude, mindset, and
physical actions of a person are well adjusted, the horses will seemingly
relax. However, if any part does not fit
how the horse perceives that person they will react in certain ways. Some are subtle while others may be obvious
reactions. It is during this time most
people recognize their problems by experiencing the reaction of the horse and
begins to understand how they feel and how others “see” them. Horses cannot lie, they cannot manipulate the
situation, and they will not “pretend” everything is all right. It may be the first time an individual
experiences acceptance from an authentic source.

Sponsor a Horse
This program is aimed at letting people bond personally with a horse without incurring the expenses of owning and housing a horse. Each horse can be sponsored by an individual or family. The events will be supervised by the staff of Unbridled Changes and may include activities such as: grooming, ground work, education, nutrition, and just plain 'ole horsing around. There is a small fee per month to Sponsor a Horse. All the income collected goes toward sponsoring individuals in the Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy program who may not otherwise be able to afford treatment. If you prefer to sponsor a foal we will have new additions to the farm in the spring. These horses will be able to be sponsored until they go into training around the age of 2-3. You will be able to follow the horses during their training and show adventure online. We have horses of all ages! Stop on by and bring the family!
