Life skills learned through horses

I have had the pleasure of seeing how horse partnerships impact campers’ lives, bringing self-confidence and joy. Some campers come to horsemanship fearful and by the end of their program ride confidently with their new horse friend.

Horses have so much to teach us about trust, leadership and self-confidence. Through horsemanship I aim to teach students that in relationship with their horse they can become effective leaders. If given clear cues and treated with respect, a horse will begin to view the child as the leader. Students gain an enormous amount of self-confidence when they see the positive results of their leadership.

Like any healthy team environment there must be mutual trust and respect for the leader to lead well, and the team to willingly follow the vision and instruction of the leader. I love seeing the joy these lessons bring to students and how this learning overflows into other areas of their lives.

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
