When you form a connection with a horse they will forever remind you. The way this horse insisted he was seen when his favorite young man was loving on a dog made for a wonderful session. The smile on my clients face and the look in the horses eyes (Slider) speaks volumes to how much they truly get each other and share a special bond. Forming a connection is so important in life; with horses and other humans (and dogs too!). When you form a bond with a horse it shows you exactly how it is to love and be loved unconditionally.

Something to think about......

07/12/2022

Saying no is a powerful word. Knowing what you truly want in life and going after it is essential. If you find yourself always saying yes to things that only cause you stress; say no.

It's not only powerful but it creates boundaries for yourself that allows you to grow. Sometimes it's hard to identify these things that are not bringing you joy because you constantly are trying to make others happy by saying yes.

It's time to start saying no and feeling good about it. Horses are very helpful with assisting you to establish these boundaries. They help you identify what it is that you need to be saying no to.

Interested in finding out more about how horses help establish boundaries? Send me a PM or reach out to me directly at [email protected] or (209) 329-1514

Today's session was spontaneous and both the client and horse shined. People need horses to share space with so they can open up and feel emotions. Horses provide such a calming atmosphere where one can be vulnerable.

However, horses need people as much as people need them. This mare has been sad the last couple of days. She is narcoleptic & is missing her purpose (job). Yesterday she didn't want to eat. I noticed when I cleaned her stall that she started eating when I touched her.

Today's session did not go as I planned. I was thinking we would use Pickett for sharing space and writing emotions down on the horse. We walked up to Burleys stall as she was standing in the corner not eating. The moment my client walked into the stall & touched her she began to eat.

I realized today more than ever that horses and people are very similar. We all want a purpose in life. We all want to be our best selves. We all need guidance. This session was so beautiful for both the person and the horse.

After working with sweet Burley (who did fall asleep a couple of times but did not fall down) my client opened up with her emotions while providing such empathy to this horse. They complimented each other so well. They both said "It's okay. Ive got you" to each other in their own way.

After the client left I planned to bathe Burley but I had to wait. Why? She finished all of her food and her grain.

Touching a horse is so therapeutic to my clients as well as to the horses.

My heart is full & Burley will now be one of my therapy horses that I will work with because she is important and she has a purpose. Just a different job than being a barrel horse. ❤

Had a fun morning with one of my younger clients. We started off our session with the word "mindful" and discussed what the means.

We followed up that discussion with a scavenger hunt. However, this was not your hurry up and find items type of scavenger hunt. We reflected on each item in detail that we found. To my surprise, he didn't have any trouble coming up with 3 or more descriptions.

When things started to speed up, we said "mindful" together. Which forced us to be present in the moment; not rush through it.

Our session ended by coloring on Pickett. Some of the blue chalk is hard to see on Pickett. The first heart the client drew he immediately said "I'm not good at hearts." I explained that yes he was and it takes practice. I demonstrated how to do a heart and then he drew his own perfectly colored heart in orange. 🧡

Today was a mindful, playful, & fun day. It was about slowing down and taking our time.

If you are looking for some mindful activities for your children or yourself to do, please give me a call at 209-329-1514. You can DM or email me at [email protected]

I absolutely love to work with all ages of children and adults. Each session is based on what is needed for that client so they are never the same!

Thank you Tracy for the wonderful review!

This was a very fun experience with this mom and her 2 sons. They learned a lot and the hour went by fast! It was so sweet because one of the boys was hugging Pickett by the end of the session. You could see the connection he formed in that hour with him. It was truly magical to witness!

I absolutely love what I do with horses and the people who come out for a session. There are so many different reasons why people want this experience. I enjoy every interaction I have with my clients.

You have to put in the work to be the person you are destined to be! Give yourself credit for your efforts and never stop making yourself a priority. After all, you have to live with YOU! Why not be a better version of yourself? Tomorrow is one more step to that person.

♥️ There is courage in the ability to stay true to yourself. So many outer influences will try to keep you from who you are supposed to be. Don’t listen to them. Those who see your potential will be in your corner. What you envision for yourself is possible… have the courage to work for who you are meant to be ♥️

Finding a connection with a horse is so valuable to the client and the horse. Today's activity was fun & this young lady and horse connected deeply again.

It's not often that a horse just lays down and becomes vulnerable enough to sleep during the end of the session. She was snoring at one point and trusting the client. In return the client was able to open up and talk more as she was petting the horse.

The beautiful thing that I was able to witness was the confidence in this young lady. She is very mature and very determined to be the best version of herself. She went to the ground and sat with this mare for some time. There was no fear. No self-doubt. All confidence! She chose to be that close on the ground with this horse who could easily wake up quickly or spook at a noise putting her in a dangerous place to be.

That did not happen. They both were like this for a long period of time. It was beautiful. So much growth with the two of them the past couple of months they have worked together.

Horses have an amazing ability to share space with humans allowing them to heal and set boundaries. These were the types of conversations we were having at this very moment.

This weekend I had the pleasure to work with an amazing group of women. Their friendship and support for one another was breathtaking. Their bond of 30 years of friendship is so strong. Their energy was absolutely amazing.

Each woman had a challenge that they were presented with over the past couple years that they wanted to heal from post pandemic. They embraced the horses and the healing experience with open arms. Though things like grief and shifting to a different place in life than before the pandemic is a lot to process, they showed up and did the work. I was so proud of how they opened up about these things all while brushing the horses and just feeling the love that the horse gives back.

They ended the session with a meditation labyrinth walk. They engaged in that walk 100% & each of them got something different from the experience.

I am truly blessed to be able to provide healing therapeutic services for my clients. It was a special treat that they were visiting from out of state and wanted this experience during their time here.

When the session was over each one of them hugged me. I felt so connected to them based on their bond & friendship. I thought to myself; this is what women should be like. They should love and support one another during challenging times and good times.

Their session was meaningful for me just as much as it was for them. I appreciate their business and allowing me to share their photos & experience. The love horses provide is often hard to describe until you experience it.

Words from one of the very best coaches. My mentor and one of my best friends!

One of the places I see people get stuck is in forgetting to live, to find the joy in what is right in front of them, to step out and try something new. Live my friends....there's nothing like it!
..............
You start dying slowly ;
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly :
When you kill your self-esteem,
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly ;
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly :
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly :
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain
If you do not go after a dream
If you do not allow yourself
At least once in your lifetime
To run away from sensible advice

Don't let yourself die slowly
Do not forget to be happy!

The labyrinth is all raked and ready for this weekends sessions. Have you ever walked the labyrinth path?

A labyrinth is a pattern of pathways that weave in a circle around a central point. You walk through the pathways to get to the center. Labyrinths are about the journey, at least as much as the destination. They can be calming, as they slow you down while you wind your way through the path.

This is always offered to my clients here at PickSix Equine Guided Healing. Walking this path can help calm you and put things into perspective. It is essentially a meditative walk.

I built this labyrinth originally for my clients, however, you can find me using it all the time. I have been able to process a lot of challenges, heartaches, & accomplishments in this labyrinth. No matter what I'm working on or processing, when I come center, I am always grounded.

Grief is a never ending process. It takes time for you to accept & heal. Just because you make the choice to heal from grief does not mean that it disappears. You learn to cope. Though this picture is of an Ox & not a horse, it still gives a good example of what Grief looks like. Sometimes we display our grief with anger. Sometimes we can sit with a horse and be okay with that and let it go.

I love this horse SO MUCH. He is the best business partner a girl can ask for. Such a gentle horse who provides such a great energy around him.
