Casey's Healing Hooves Staff
Several years ago, I personally dedicated myself, as well as my farm, to helping people through the connection with animals and nature. After several equine therapy sessions my commitment to providing Equine Assisted programs on a larger level is even more stronger than it was several years ago. The goal of our programs are to provide clients with opportunities to reclaim and embrace life.
My dedication to this therapy comes from being both a product of the magic found in the human-animal bond as well as an observer of the profound awakenings that occur in individuals participating in our programs. My journey into the healing and calming connection between animals and humans began in my childhood and continues in to my adult years.
As I remember back on those early days, there was seldom a time when an animal was not part of my life. Most people were not aware of what was taking place through this bonding and just called me an "animal lover." There was the unconditional love and acceptance there for me during those trying junior high and high school years. There was the calming influence during times of family turmoil and the loss I felt when my youngest brother suddenly passed away and then the loss of my father. Throughout my life, animals have continued to help me through career transitions, and broken relationships. Specifically, horses have taught me how to set healthy boundaries and to be in tune with what I'm feeling on the inside and displaying on the outside. They have guided me through very dark times in my life by their confident presence and steady, consistent feedback. This personal experience, along with the continued research documenting the power of this therapy and living my purpose, is what drives me to provide a safe place for individuals to experience the healing magical power of horses and to overcome obstacles keeping them from attaining all that life has to offer them.
Thank you for your continued support of our programs and services.
