Meagan L. Good, M.A.

Take Heart began with a desire to combine passion with service. Meagan has been fascinated with horses since her first childhood riding lessons. She rode in 4-H for several years and in 2005, purchased her first horse, Charley. As a shy teenager, working with horses built Meagan's confidence, provided a place of peace, and taught life-lessons such as patience, goal-setting, and the value of hard work. She felt called to one day pair her passion for horses with her desire to help people in some way - and received a specific calling to do just that through equine assisted therapy. Meagan graduated with her M.A. in Professional Counseling from Lancaster Bible College. She is working toward her state license as a professional counselor. Meagan opened Take Heart in 2014 with one horse and the blessing of a generous dairy farmer who allowed her to use his horses and property.  She feels blessed to be part of this growing ministry and the journeys of her clients. Meagan is also an adjunct professor of Equine Assisted Therapy at Lancaster Bible College. She and her husband live on and care for the new Take Heart property in Mohnton, PA.
