Scarlet_and_Max.jpg† "Spirit Heart" is the childhood Dream coming True. Around 50 years ago, my mother brought me a horse because I was "an at risk kid" who was in need of something that could turn my own life around. It was thru her guidance and connection I found my way thru the love and understanding of this amazing animal called the Horse!
Mission Statement To assist each personís special emotional needs; to reach their full potential through the interaction of horses. Incorporated in 2010, Spirit Heart provides a unique variety of programs that are guided towards building a childís self esteem, confidence and sense of self worth. Based on each child's abilities, they will be instructed in the basics of natural horsemanship. They will learn to understand how the horse thinks and from there build a relationship with horses thru love and understanding that will help change the rest of their lives. Once they have mastered the ground work, they can start private, equine- assisted therapeutic riding lessons, learning to lead, groom, and saddle their horse before and after each lesson. While riding, each studentís individual needs will be addressed through horse therapy such as speech, sensory, balance, behavior, cognitive processing, etc. In the near future, Spirit Heart hopes to offer arts & crafts, wood working, and music workshops for the entire family. Spirit Heartís services are about sharing healthy quality time together while in stowing the idea that a person can do anything they set their mind to do. In fact, dreams really can come true; Spirit Heart is proof of that. ďSpirit Heart is dedicated to the God/Christ Spirit within all of us and my late mother, Marvette Hilton Turner for having the deep love and understanding of all of the above. I am proud to carry on her vision and be her legacy.Ē Carolyn Hilton
