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.
The Heal with Horses Equine Therapeutic Centre has 17 horses in the herd. The horses are accustomed to children and adults. Pictured here are some our most experienced “therapists”!
Meet Our Small Animal Therapists!
HWH has 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.
Sherman and Diamond were our first two goats and in the spring of 2018 we acquired three more : Buddy, Pal and Cookie. They are sweet, mischievous and love to “help” whenever it’s feeding time.
Martin is our adorable miniature donkey. His two favourite things are snuggles and chasing pigs.
Dogs and Cats
You will often come across the dogs and cats at the farm. Milou and Beau are the dogs that live on the farm. 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.
