Having visited Stormwalker on more than one occasion, I'm always awed at how intuitive the horses are to the mood of the people. It helps us understand how our human emotions and actions can influence events around us and how we might better manage them. The Gates of Grace program is a tremendous asset to the region.
When we were invited to visit Stormwalker Ranch, we jumped at the chance. We’ve seen firsthand, having horses of our own, how these animals can help people develop such patience and self-discipline and empathy for other living creatures. And that’s what we saw happening at the Ranch. We witnessed bonds created between humans and animals, and students learning as much from their horses as the horses learned from them. The work they are doing at Stormwalker Ranch is truly inspirational.
The first time we visited SWR, we were sitting on the front porch and several young women from the Gates of Grace program were coming in after completing a group session. We exchanged greetings and asked how they were doing. One thin young girl made the comment, "Mondays are my Sundays." Obviously, she found her time there inspiring. Not surprising as it is an inspiring place! This is just one example of why my husband, and I are supportive of Stormwalker Ranch. The magic that can happen between horses and humans is happening here and helping so many in our area who need that help....so lucky to have it here!
Our volunteers love horses and enjoy people, making for a fun and fulfilling time during lessons, camps, and/or special events.
