We are so happy that Daisy is joining Wind Horse Sanctuary in Nevada City, California, to become part of the Epona equine-facilitated learning (EFL) program. The Epona program provides a non-predatory approach to social intelligence, leadership, and self-discovery for humans, through partnership with horses.
The Epona Approach (EFL) provides an opportunity for participants to discover authenticity and promote self-awareness. We use the wonderful tool of the Emotional Message Chart which allows us to unlock the messages behind the emotions and what our bodies are trying to communicate to us. It’s an amazing fact that 90% of all communication is non-verbal and horses naturally dwell in the non-verbal realm of authenticity and intuition. When partnering with horses, you will find the horses behavior reflected in your own emotions and issues. They offer a non-biased sounding board for you to travel to the root of the whatever issue is at hand, identify it and then release it. Above all, after your time with the horses, you will leave with skills to support you in your everyday life. Spending time with the horses can be incredibly magical and profound but ultimately you are equipping yourself with life tools to assist you in every moment with or without horses. ~ Tara Coyote, Wind Horse Sanctuary
Daisy is a 14.2-hand, 18-year-old registered Halflinger mare looking for a home. She is Parelli-trained and is a great mare to handle and be around. She enjoys being groomed and loved on. She has excellent feet and is current on dentistry, vaccinations, worming, and hoof care.
Daisy has been a great lesson horse for me for the last 7 years. In November 2015, she tore her collateral ligament in her left front, rendering her unable to continue being a lesson horse in our program. We are looking for the right home for her where she will be given the time to heal and have the companionship and connection with the people around her.
She has been resting for 6 months and is looking better at a walk. As of now she suitable as a brood mare, pasture mate, or therapy horse. Her prognosis is that she may or may not be rideable on the trail in the future. If you are interested in more information about Daisy, please contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
