How Horses Have Drawn Me Closer to God

Growing up, I never thought horses would become an integral part of my life. I was five when I saw my mom bitten by an abused horse at a girl scout camp my sister was attending. I was terrified after that.

When I was twelve, my best friend saw an advertisement for riding lessons and she begged me to try it once. I finally caved in and agreed to one lesson and one lesson only. I was put on an older Arabian gelding with the kindest eyes I had ever seen—from that day on, I was an obsessed horse girl and it quickly became my passion.

I immediately realized the power of healing horses had on my heart and soul. I came from a single parent home, we didn’t have much money, and after my first lesson I worked most of my lessons off on a weekly basis. It wasn’t easy work; however, it was extremely valuable and rewarding for all of the sweat and tears I invested into my education with horses.

Coming from a home with a single mother bore its challenges; I found the horses healing my heart in places where there had been holes from my childhood. Their quiet, inquisitive nature brought me peace. The loving bond I formed with each horse I worked with, was truly a gift from God which healed parts of me.

While residing on the East Coast, I sought out faith-based employment positions utilizing horses to share their ministry. I wanted to be able to share all the love I had received from horses over the years, including their transformational healing potential, with others.

I came upon Warm Beach Horsemanship and immediately applied. Being here, seeing how our team treats one another, as well as how much love and care we put into the care of our horses, I feel God truly has me on the path where I am meant to be. I feel closer and more connected to God every day as a result of being a part of such a vital ministry. I truly have my love and passion for horses to thank for that.

[14] As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. [15] As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them. [16] But God kept them from recognizing him."   God, I did not recognize You! One of God’s ways of approaching us is to simply meet us where ...

Exploring your worth in Christ

“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hands and says to you, ‘do not fear, I will help you.'" Isaiah 41:13 What I do defines who I am. The choices I make define my value – for better or for worse. Are those things true? There are countless times in my life where I believed that what I did defined who I am. One poignant example occurred when I was 14 years old. I ...
