Hope. Healing. Horses.

Empowering individuals and families to find hope, healing, and wholeness through therapeutic work with horses.

​Respect: Each of us is on our own journey, uniquely created by God in His image. We value your experiences and your point of view.

Hope: Life is just plain hard sometimes. "Take heart" is a battle cry to be courageous and hold onto hope. Because of the Hope we have in Jesus, we can truly take heart and overcome our struggles.

Empowering: We know that you have what it takes to do what you need to do, or to get through this difficult situation. We believe in empowering and equipping you to do it.

Wholeness: We are all broken, lost, and in need of redeeming. Healing and becoming whole once again are possible, because we have a loving God who wants to heal, restore, and make us whole once again.

Compassion: We all need someone who genuinely cares to walk alongside us offering support and guidance as we learn, grow, and change.

Quality: You deserve effective, meaningful, personalized service that is beneficial for you and your family. We provide quality care and, if you feel this isn't the right fit, we will help you find it.

Peace: Our world is chaotic, but true peace is real. We have a God of peace who wants to reconcile you to himself so that in Him, you can find that peace. Our goal is to help you find peace within so you can take it into any situation.

Take Heart is a battle cry to hold onto hope and have courage while facing seemingly impossible situations. Take Heart is named for the following verses in the Bible which inspire hope not only for the future, but for the present as well:

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. - Jesus (John 16:33)

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. - David (Psalm 31:24)

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. - David (Psalm 27:13-14)
