I've been guided to a new beginning. I'm now working at Arion Therapeutic Riding Farm. I started as a volunteer leading horses and sidewalking. In the last couple weeks I helped out feeding horses. Then I was asked if I could teach horsemanship skills for kids and adults to help with building confidence and self-esteem. Next thing I know, now I'm signing up to get certified through CanTRA as a riding instructor. And, combining my passion of horses, counselling and life coaching, I'm signing up to a course for Equine Assisted Therapy / Animal Assisted Therapy. This course is held in Calgary in May at Healing Hooves Equine Facilitated Counselling. I'm so excited. I can hardly wait! Maybe Link and Rollie could be your next equine counsellors?
I have a little picture I love, I clipped it out of a magazine a while ago. It is so true. It says:
"All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day." ~ Author Unknown.
Horses really are very good listeners.
