“Ezra is the finest, most powerfully transformative horseman and leader I have ever worked with. I am so thankful for all he has given to me, he is extraordinary as a teacher.

Molly T.

I want to highly recommend that everyone who is able to, try this experience. The energy of the horses is very gentle and sweet, and Gita’s guidance of the experience is masterful. The experience was very deep and profound for me. Each time I have had a session with the horses I have been blown away by the depth of clarity and inspiration which I have taken away from the experience. I am curious about other people’s experiences with this process. It has been a great blessing to me to do this work.

What People Say

From learning to relax in stressful situations to communicating my needs more clearly, and really seeing the me inside that I want to be.  I hadn't noticed all the limiting habits I had or how closed off I was to others, until a horse reflected it back to me, instantly!  I now challenge myself to stay conscious to these things.  The results for me have been truly amazing and they still continue.  Thank you, I feel so blessed by this experience."

Lisa C / Workshop Participant

The workshop was direct and simple - just follow the instructions, work with the horses and you will be transformed, and gain new insight into yourself.  It was truly amazing how the horses guided our group into a new level of thought/mind/body connection.  They became intuitive guides to understanding our body language, our thought patterns, and how to become more resilient.  The horses allowed me to feel like I was playing as a child again, but with the intention of an adult.  This program took our group from start to finish in working together, establishing more trust, creating better communication and deepening our team building!  It was top notch, all in one package!
