Thecla And Andy
For twenty years we've been working with horses and human partnership initiatives. Results have demonstrated, a better sense of well being, better relationships with family, friends, community; an increased awareness of our place in nature and overall sense of calmness and peacefulness. Days are offered to guests both featuring ground work and riding in the beautiful woods of Kentucky's rolling hill. Proceeds support youth and family camps throughout the year. Interfacing with our herd in an open free range setting is a day to remember. Dr. Thecla Helmbrecht Howard was chosen as 2014 Kentucky wise woman of the year for her ability to bring horses and humans together therapeutically. It is a day you will not forget.
