My team and I have now attended two training courses at Through the Gate for a total of 8 CEU's earned! The level of knowledge, professionalism, and interaction with the horses makes this one of the best ways to expand our knowledge and understanding in the helping professional field. The horses' responses provided insight into our own thoughts and feelings and supported my team and myself with coming up with our own solutions to acknowledge our compassion fatigue and recognizing counter transferences in our own private practice. My team not only consists of licensed professionals, but professionals who have horse experiences. This combination approach of having various backgrounds allowed for additional insights, learning opportunities, and growths for my whole team verses just the licensed individuals. Thank you Anne and Mary for your support and thoughtful feedback. We look forward to more experiences at your farm!
--Tara E. Higgins, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor

I participated in a ďmindfulĒ workshop today at a horse farm. If you know me At All, you must know that Iím not much of meditator (is that a word?) I normally confuse the word meditation with mediAtion And mindful??? I thought that meant obeying your parents. Ha, you think Iím joking. Nope. Needless to say I didnít know What to expect when I agreed to attend this workshop. Long story short, it was one of the most wonderful experiences Iíve had in years. My mind stopped racing for almost an entire hour and Iíve never felt such peace in being still and Living In The Moment. This could be a game changer. Thanks LPH for encouraging me to try new things
