“I was, and still am, overwhelmed by what a gift it was to work with her one on one, and to receive her level of skill, care and attention.”

Each day was different and a unique experience, with Judy suggesting daily activities, depending on what issues were present for me each morning. We then discussed and planned the day with the purpose of flexibility, allowing time throughout the day to pause, reflect and/or ride the energetic breakthroughs when needed. And of course there was always time for good food, gratitude and joy!

Judy was completely dedicated to the cause of unearthing issues that were the cause of my emotional pain and discomfort, and that were contributing factors to an overwhelming sense of feeling ‘stuck’. Through her constant thoughtfulness and attention to detail, she and her beautiful horses made me feel safe and assured at all times, helping me through each lesson and journey.

As a result, I got back on the plane feeling completely rejuvenated and inspired to move forward. To always remember that my instincts and ideas are strong and valid. And that I have everything I need to create a lifestyle and business that is uniquely my own.

I feel very honored to have had such an experience in my life and to have been loved and cared for by Judy, Wayne and their entire animal family. It was an awesome gift and one that I will never forget.

“I would recommend Judy’s sessions, workshops and retreats to anyone looking for deep healing in a beautiful, supportive environment.”

When someone is doing their life’s work, I find that they show up for that work with deep integrity, authenticity and strength, from a place of inner knowing and connection. It is evident from every interaction with Judy, from her heart-centered presence and the ease and safety she crates, that she is right where she I meant to be, fulfilling her dream and empowering others to do the same. Working with those who stand in their truth calls us to ours, and that has been my experience with everyone at Healing Through Horses (including, of course, the amazing horses). My time there has brought me so much clarity, peace and joy.

“I want to say thank you and let you know how much I appreciate all the time and energy you have put into my healing.”

You have had patience with me when I did not have any for myself. You gave me hope when I lost all hope in myself, and you believed in me when I no longer believed in myself. The way you work gets through to me. I love working with you and the horses.

“Thank you for being such a wonderful coach!”

You gently push me and don’t let me off the hook – while holding space for the connections to be made and for me to reach the healing and epiphany I need to move forward. You and your herd make a formidable team!”

“I really, really enjoyed your class! Thank you for such an amazing experience.”

I have done a lot of work in counseling, therapy and several modalities to try and find healing and release of the trauma in my past and your class was amazing! I appreciate your willingness and ability to hold and facilitate space and thank you for the opportunity for healing and growth. The environment was safe and the horses, especially, Einstein, were amazing.
