Change begins when you decide you are ready to look at your current beliefs, attitudes and behaviors with an open mind and heart.



Each exploration with the horse offers you the opportunity to discover with clarity your authentic self, formulate new skills and create positive change.


You’ll find that the skills you bring to each new experience will take you further in life and give you the confidence to be the best version of you!


 Our mission at Life Lessons with Horses is to offer individuals and organizations, unique and enjoyable programs with horses to explore, discover and master the skills necessary for a balanced, healthy and fulfilling life!
