There are lots of very special times here at PEACE Ranch as you might imagine. Working with children and adults with various needs and disabilities in conjunction with horses is incredibly fertile ground. On a daily basis, we are watching people be transformed before our eyes. Stretching farther, going faster, balancing better, speaking more clearly, trusting more—– it is our privilege to have a front row seat while it all takes place.
Every once in a while though, there is something remarkable that happens that makes everyone in the vicinity just stop to watch. Teary eyed, we know we are witnesses to inner transformation that transcends the program, the parents, our efforts, and reaches deep into the heart of the individual to change him or her forever. A good friend of mine coined these “holy moments” and they are worth remembering.
