Community Events & Educational Workshops

Our goal is to set the standard equine-assisted services and share the power of this therapeutic modality through community events, instructor training programs, and continued professional development. Please join us for one of our community workshops, webinars, or training opportunities to learn about the healing power of the horse.

Friday, May 10 from 10am – 4pm CST

at Healing with Horses Ranch

Utilizing Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey framework, attendees will discover and identify guides, helpers, tricksters, and other archetypes that play a role in their life’s journey. The goal of this workshop is to discover the universal story inherent in our human experience; the Hero’s Journey provides fertile terrain for mapping your unique experience. You will come away from this workshop with greater ease in traversing life’s difficult moments and leave with a deeper understanding of the patterns in your life with new life navigation skills.
