Florita is 31 and we've been together for over 20 years. She is the first horse I have ever owned - or rather, she is the one who owns me. She taught me everything I know about horses and she taught me to be a better person.
Shoko is Florita's daughter, she is 18. She never became the amazing trail horse her mother was, instead she has become the most amazing teacher I have ever known. She continues to teach me that I don't know the first thing about horses and she teaches me to become a better horse.
Moonshadow is Shoko's son, he is 6. Yes, our team is a family of three generations:) He's a big boy with a big personality and the attitude of a teenager. He is full of love and teaches everyone healthy boundaries, including me.
Raja is the resident Arabian who generously shares "his" farm with our family. With his calm presence and sweet disposition he has naturally joined the healing team.
Ulrike has been around horses since earliest childhood. She worked as trail guide and wrangler in a remote part of the Chilcotin for two years, accompanying weeklong wilderness pack trips through the coastal mountain range. After working as a Peer Counsellor and Shamanic Counsellor for a few years, she trained in Equine Facilitated Wellness at Chiron's Way in Maple Ridge, and in Equine Assisted Learning at The Equine Connection Counselling Services in Vernon, BC. Her equine family lives on a private horse farm 10 minutes from downtown Hope, BC, near the river surrounded by mountains and forest.
