Horses are Skillful Teachers
Horses are amazing teachers and require us to bring our best selves forward. They keep us present and teach us how to balance our emotions. When the horse requires us to change our approach, it will react through its body language. If we don’t pay attention to these cues, the horse will keep reacting. Once we change our approach in a positive way, the horse will let us know we are on the right track by giving us instant positive feedback to our actions.
Meet The Horses
The Heal with Horses Equine Therapeutic Centre has 20 horses in the herd. The horses are accustomed to children and adults. Pictured here are some our most experienced “therapists”!
We aren’t going to describe our horses’ personalities here because we want our clients to see what they think about them when they meet them. However, we will list their names here.
Many of our horses are rescued animals, which is why we’re not always completely sure about how old they are.
Meet Our Small Animal Therapists!
Some clients may prefer to interact with smaller animals. Lucky for them, HWH has a sweet collection of a variety of small animals to play with. These little creatures are accustomed to children and merrily welcome any and all attention.
We have many, many mini piggies at the farm. When the weather is nice, you’ll see them wandering all over the place. When the weather is really cold, they prefer to spend most of their day cuddled up together and sleeping.
Our goats are named Sherman and Diamond. They are brother and sister goats, and very sweet. Goats love to climb and jump!
Ozzy is the white sheep, and the black sheep is called Billy Bob. You will see them sauntering around the farm, and if their dinner is late, you will hear them complaining loudly “baaaaa, baaaaa, baaaa”.
Dogs and Cats
You will often come into contact with the dogs and cats at the farm. Milou and Beau are the dogs that live on the farm, and Roxy is Taylor’s dog who often follows her around. Doodlebug, Torti and McGoo are the cats that you will probably see wandering about. They all like to interact with the pigs, sheep and goats, too.
