Providing a sanctuary for horse & human, a place to stretch your wings and learn to fly.
Wings is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization offering women extraordinary opportunities
through equine assisted encounters to grow
in a natural, safe environment.
We believe in an individual’s ability to find answers, direction and identify
their unique purpose for life, when provided with
A Serene Environment.
During times of transition and challenge, WINGS offers hope and healing through
to rekindle the flame within and rediscover our unique purpose.
Women are welcomed to a serene countryside to enjoy time in nature and to
rock back ‘n breathe from the frantic pace of life. They will feel the tension
and stress begin to dissolve as they walk the grounds and meet the horses
and other farm friends. The small group experience allows for sharing,
but also quiet reflection. The experience is intertwined with partnering
with a horse and having a trusted human guide sharing ideas,
notions and life enhancing concepts that inspire clarity,
focus and greater self-awareness.
Knowing & Articulating Our Values
Clarifying Our Life Purpose
Embracing Our Significance
Horses have an uncanny ability to illuminate who we are and where we need to go.
Their intuitive spirit guides us to our more authentic self. Reflective, always vigilant,
horses simply are who they are and invite us to do the same. Horses provide
instant feedback in a non-judgemental way that encourages
us towards being our best selves.
