100% I agree with every word of Harmony’s. I thought I knew myself before HorseWorks, I was wrong. I had so much to learn about the meaning of happiness and the difference between that and contentment. I thought I knew, but finally understood, there are no problems, only solutions. I thought I was independent, but I didn’t truly understand the definition. I believed I could handle anything, but I learned help is always better. MaeCile and Nate and their horses and animals taught me so much about myself that I am forever grateful. I often post about politics and the news of the day, but when you’re out in the middle of the Wyoming range and it’s just you and the horse under you, that’s real.

HorseWorks wasn’t easy, but was the most fun I have ever had and easy doesn’t make life worth living.  When I applied to HorseWorks, I knew I wanted to escape city life and ride horses.  I didn’t realize I’d meet lifelong friends and family and have a transformative experience on my outlook on life. The horses and Wyoming sunsets brought long-sought peace of mind and refocused me on those things in life that are actually important.
