Feeling down? Saddle up and please ride along with us for a healing Mara Moment.
Spending time with my horse, Mara B, has helped me heal after the tragic death of our youngest son, Benjamin. The time, hours of work and activities with Mara B is my own form of horse therapy which provides me with emotional and spiritual comfort and growth. After leasing horses for many years, I decided to buy a horse to advance my healing journey. I bought Mara B four years after Benjamin’s death and many hours of talk therapy, other holistic treatments and a major retreat from life. Mara B has pulled me forward on my healing path.
Through this blog I try to provide a unique perspective on working with my horse from a point of view that most people do not experience. Many photos I post are from the height of a person in the saddle and others are from the eye level of the horse – what Mara B sees. Almost all photos are posted the day they were taken with my Canon G9X camera and simple editing techniques. My goal is to share my horse time with you, while enjoying my own healing horse time benefits.

As a member of PATH (Professional Association Therapeutic Horsemanship International), I continue learning more about equine therapy through their quarterly publication STRIDES.
I hope you will become a follower and ride along. Happy Trails.
