We are an LLC Farm in the Colorado Springs area dedicated to the well being of people and animals. Our Mission is to provide a bonding connection between people and their environment, between people and our horses and most importantly, between people and themselves.
Far too often we get caught up in the daily urgent needs and forget to look at who we are, what is important and why we are doing all the crazy things we feel are necessary. We have found that taking the time to just be in the present with a wonderful animal in a beautiful place actually brings us closer to the person who we really are. Not the crazy, hectic person we see everyday.
My husband and I are both retired career military. This has made the family business of or relating to the military. The military has taught us many things; some through structured courses and some through experience. Now we want to take our military experience and help individuals heal by working and interacting with our horses. Because of the values we have strengthened in the military such as loyalty, dependability and honesty, we have found that we have an affinity for warhorses or better said, historical warhorses, because these horses have the same values. Our horse family includes a Friesian, an Icelandic, a Missouri Fox-Trotter, a Quarter horse and a Mustang.
The Friesian horse breed has a very long history. It is one of the breeds the Knights Templar used to protect the pilgrimage through the Holy Land. Records of the Friesian ancestors have even been found in Roman army excavations.
The Icelandic horse breed was a Viking warhorse. Stories abound of Vikings riding their trusty steeds right onto their ships. Icelandic horses tend to be smaller than traditional horses. While they are smaller, they are very sturdy and even-keeled.
The Missouri Fox-trotter horse breed was favored by Old West Doctors. Their gate is very smooth and covers ground quickly, just like the ballroom dace Fox-trot.
The Quarter horse breed is one of the most well known horse breeds in America due to their strength. They are very dependable and easy mannered.
The Mustangs embody the words Freedom and Intelligence. They are descended from horsed brought to America by the Spanish. The Native Americans brought the Mustangs into their culture and recognize them as scared.
Each horse has taught me valuable and differing lessons. I hope to partner with these wonderful creatures to help teach others these very important life lessons.
