I am so pleased to be able to offer this unique experiential program to individuals and families looking for meaningful connection through the wisdom of the horse.  My own family immigrated to Canada in 1952 fleeing the occupied Ukraine and the aftermath of the second world war. My childhood was certainly different than most of my peers at the time.  It wasn't until after I began to work with children and their families that I understood that so much of the chaos in my family was a result of my parents PTSD and trauma suffered during their terror-filled migration from their home.  After almost 40 years of working in the field of mental health, I am now able to devote my time entirely to Horses Are Magic.  Equine experiential therapy was something I discovered while looking for a unique counselling experience for myself more than 17 years ago.  I was amazed at how quickly and gently the horses directed me to my "real issues".   It was a powerful and freeing experience. 


I wasn't sure what to call my practice and so went to confer with my equine partners for help with our name.  As I sat in silent communion with the herd, images and memories of how the horses had helped me and others flooded into my vision.  Pictures and feelings...but no words.  How could one put into words such incredible experiences? It's like trying to explain magic!  The horses and I pondered the idea of magic and decided that it's one of our most beautiful concepts -- it's free and boundless, not governed by societal rules.  Combined with horses who are one of the most beautiful animals ever created, something wonderful happens.  People discover the true magic of themselves.  And so, Horses Are Magic came to be.
