Vision Statement

Horses Heal Hearts.  It's that simple.

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) uses horses to help people learn how to tune in to their authentic selves and turn up the volume of their lives.  Mindfulness and meditation practice in the presence of the horses enhance the EAL work. 

The stunning locations of Taos, New Mexico and Troncones, Mexico enhance the transformative nature of Vicki's EAL work.  The Mexico Retreats are held at Yoga del Pacifico, a gorgeous oceanfront villa complete with swimming pool, handcrafted yoga platform, and stone labyrinth.  EAL sessions are held just down the beach road at the stunning Cangrejo y Toro rancho.  Taos Ski Valley, a 1300 acre wilderness playground, is the setting for her Womens Wellness Workshops, Cowgirl Campouts, Guided Horse Tours, and Cowpoke Club. 

 

Our ranches are sanctuaries where horses help people find their strength, their purpose, and their true selves.  We offer personal exploration programs using the wisdom of horses to the following populations:  
 

  • Women In Transition

  • Those Experiencing Grief After the Loss of A Loved One

  • Folks Recovering from Food, Alcohol, or Drug Addiction

  • Those Affected by Trauma, Depression or Anxiety

  • At Risk Children and Teens

  • First Responders and Veterans Suffering From PTSD

  • Anyone Seeking Increased Clarity and Balance in Their Lives

Please see the What is EAL page for detailed information on the above programs.  We look forward to helping you explore the healing power of horses!


What Equine Assisted Learning Can Do For You

  • Integrate and establish yourself in wholeness...spiritually, emotionally and physically

  • Connect with the part of you that you’ve forgotten exists

  • Reveal and release old patterns and beliefs that keep you away from your power and truth

  • Find and immerse yourself in your inner knowing and wisdom

  • Live your life and relationships from today, one day at a time

"A barn is a sanctuary in a unsettled world, a sheltered place where life’s true priorities are clear. When you take a step back, it’s not just about horses – its about love, life, and learning. We honor our horses for their brave hearts, courage, and willingness to give. Indeed, horses have the hearts of warriors and often carry us into and out fields of personal battles. Those who know them understand how fully a horse can hold a human heart."
