Whispering Equine

Horses change lives. When a person partners with a horse, it can provide so many wonderful experiences for the individual. Time spent within that partnership can allow for emotional and physical healing, an improved sense of confidence, self esteem, personal awareness and an overall feeling of self-empowerment. It can also provide a space and the time for a tired soul to step back, relax and enjoy the simpler things in life.

Whispering Equine offers a wide variety of services, individual sessions and workshops, including Equine Facilitated Therapy, that involve interaction with the healing power of horses.
