Shari & Domino "In
This program directly involves human services.
My name is Shari and I am the founder of Healing With Horses. I found myself in a horrific near fatal auto accident years
ago lifted by life star which left me permantly disabeled, unable to speak, walk and reason due to severe trauma, broken
bones, internal injuries and traumatic brain injury.
I was desperate to find ways to cope with my unique situation allowing
me to rehabilitate and heal myself in an unconventional way. I met a variety of people along the way different ages from all
walks of life. The programs here are very personal to me. Through the use of horses I was empowered with self growth, compassion
and motivation to get myself through the most difficult time of my entire life through rescuing and rehabilitating horses.

The Merging of Horses and Learning
(Click photo above)
wonder what happens to abused and neglected horses? Some put them to sleep, others are beaten
or starved to death, some are left tied to barns with notes attached as the owners have moved on. Others have been placed
alone in dark stalls with no food or water and some turn them over to the unknown with no regrets. This has happened
to many of the horses before arriving here.
such as ours are run by people with regular jobs. They are hard working and have compassion in their hearts who struggle daily
to provide food, shelter, medical care, vetting, supplements, farriers, treats and love to these majestic animals.
The love is the easy part. The work is difficult and the rewards are ongoing
and heart felt. Volunteers work from their heart with compassion and kindness. We are reaching out to all of YOU for help.
As a 501(c)3 non profit, this facility survives on donaions from regular people that work hard like you do. We need funding
and sponsors. We cannot save them all. Together we CAN make a difference.
When you look into the EYE of the HORSE you
see a Reflection of your Soul

For hundreds of centuries, the horse and human
bond has been known for its healing power. Use of the horse in a therapeutic role, from helping wounded veterans regain functionality,
to augmenting the development of struggling children, has grown dramatically. Two principal programs have developed, which
may appear similar from a distance, but have a different focus. The process of becoming one of the herd, has us
slow down, become more present in time. Horses cues happen within seconds. When humans slow down and calm their breathing,
feel from the heart and trust in their bodies communication system, they become at peace with themselves and their environment.
One begins to feel connected to the energy of all that is.
on knowing the emotional state of every member of their herd and they do not judge any emotion as good or bad. The herd is
free to tell the truth and deal with their emotions as they arise authentically, responsibly, completely and in the moment.
There is no blocking emotions. Horses stay clear and clean which brings them emotional freedom. This again is what we call
"One with Horse".

The Role of the Equine as Partner in EAAT
New scientific research continues to reveal critical information about equine sentience- their
abilities of perception, cognition, memory, and emotions such as pain and fear. Horses are able to perceive, respond
to and learn from the impressions they receive from minimal sensory stimuli. The stimulus may originate from changes
in human biochemistry, body language, or vocal intonations. It can also come from changes in the equine’s environment,
relationships with other horses, or the horse’s general health In this way, horses make decisions based upon the
stimuli they experience from others or from their environment .
These abilities are based in natural, biological, physiological, and psychological
traits of equines. Each horse is unique in personality, and has individual likes, dislikes and habits. The information
gained from equine communication can be highly useful in all EAAT settings. Listening to equine communication can have
an effect on the care of the horses, their rate of burnout, and the success of the human-equine interaction. In EAAT sessions
or lessons, viewing the horse as a partner invites opportunities for relationship building and skill building with all
Equine Assisted Activities, Therapy Programs and General Lessons
