One Heart Stables is home to a select group of horses that offer clients struggling with depression, low self-esteem or anxiety the opportunity to engage in authentic connection. Each of their distinctive personalities contributes to their role as “equine therapists” as they serve the children in our residential program as well as adults and children in the general public through Encompass Christian Counseling. We’ve come to believe that people will pick the horse they truly need, and in turn our clients are able to engage in an honest, non-judgmental relationship with their horse.
Breed: Clydesdale/Thoroughbred Cross mare
Destiny is the newest addition to the One Heart Stables family. She is kind, a good listener and aims to please. She worked for several years in a lesson program, with students ranging from 10 to 63 years old riding her in English, Western and her personal favorite—bareback.
Destiny considers horses her four-legged family members, and people her two-legged ones. She will easily steal your heart (and your treats) with her big kind eyes, her horsey hugs and her earnest greetings. Destiny joins the One Heart Family on a lease from her current owner and friend, who is very excited to share her dream horse with us.
Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) uses interactions with a horse to facilitate individual growth and relational healing. Board-certified therapists use experiences with a horse and personal reflection to achieve the participant’s therapy goals. Individual, family and group sessions are offered and can include riding or working with a horse on the ground. Our team looks forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals. Most insurances are accepted. Learn more and inquire today.
