It is a very well run barn, that teaches natural horsemanship to individuals from young to old. The horses are not pushed into the program, and go through a holistic heath check to make sure they are in perfect health before they start their schooling. They use bit-less bridles, and treeless saddles in the program.
The facility is extremely clean, and the people are wonderful. The mares will share a paddock to start with adjacent stalls, and they all have outdoor time every day, and lots of people time with them as well.
I honestly cannot believe this solution fell into our lap, through some networking of family members. The facilitator told me she has turned away 100 horses which I believe is true.
This is a dream home for a horse. No abuse, kind loving caring people running the program. The people who work with and handle the horses understand the horse, and if there is something going on causing the horse to be irritated or act out, they realize something is causing this and it is addressed.
The best part is that the person who is the barn/program facilitator and oversees the program is a strong Christian, whose desire and commitment is to apply the principles of scripture to both man and animal in her program, and it is working very well.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Now, how could this be anything but good for both the horses and the people working with them?
We think the move should only be weeks away... my gosh, the horses will finally have a job!
