For over twenty years, therapists and coaches have been incorporating horses in their work with their human clients. It amazing that these gifts the horses are offering was seeded to so many different individuals at approximately the same time frame. People who worked and lived in different areas of North America, and we suspect, on different continents. We are excited to hear what you are learning from your horses.

This is a new idea that has the potential to change/improve human awareness. 

Hippotherapy has been around since 1993.  It involves a horse and a rider.  In this modality, “the horse influences the client rather than the client controlling the horse.”  It is the body movement of the horse that stimulates healing for clients with movement dysfunction.

In 2001, I read with enthusiasm and wonder, Linda Kohanov’s book, The Tao of Equus, A Woman’s Journey of Healing & Transformation through the Way of the Horse.  I was intrigued with the idea that a horse could help facilitate the healing of the human spirit.

In the past few years we have watched on television as horses have been brought in to help autistic children, abused women and these magnificent creatures are offering a healing environment to access the unseen wounds of returning war veterans and others suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

In 2008 I met Melisa Pearce, founder of Touched by a Horse TM.  Melisa views the horse not as a tool in her therapeutic work and gestalt coaching, but as an equal partner.  As a graduate of Melisa's Equine Gestalt Coaching Method™, I watched horses do what is known as “leaching”, and other horses who were chakra balancers, and still others who so accurately read the energy of the client and assist the client in exploring areas of their life.  And then there are those horses that do it all!

In 2012 I completed a comprehensive horse training module with Internationally known Animal Behaviorist, Anna Twinney, founder of Reach Out to HorsesTM.  Part of the program was to write a psychology paper, the aim of which was “To observe the language of Equus in its most natural form.”  I knew immediately what I intended to write about.  Expressions of Horses as Healers, has been appearing in sections on my blog. A link to that page is listed below.

These terms may not be familiar to you, or the same modality might be called something else in your region.  As noted earlier, the Healing Horse Registry International is committed to identifying  the healing modalities and capabilities of our equine friends and partners and to provide a collective format to record what we are observing.

It is our goal not to restrict our ideas of how horses are showing up to offer healing, to those modalities that we are already aware of.  If you have a new idea, we would love to add it to their repertoire.  Come explore with us!

Thank you for visiting our website.

This is a labor of love for our horses, and a work in progress as we explore the relatively new idea of horses as healers.

We began offering our healing modalities such as Reiki, Healing Touch, and Etheric Clearing Work to our horses. 
As time passed we realized they were offering healing energy back to us as well.

Join us in this journey of exploration as we invite our horses to share with us their healing gifts.

Annette Price.   For more than twenty years I have been on a spiritual journey, exploring the question, “Why am I here?”  Twelve years ago a horse came into my life who has slowly guided me, not always gently, and introduced me to a new way of looking at life.

January 1, 2010, I entered Melisa Pearce’s Equine Gestalt Coaching MethodTM  (EGCM)  and vague ideas began to gather form and take shape.
Moving on, in 2012 I completed a six-month program with Anna Twinney, Reach Out to HorsesTM  (ROTH). To complete our requirements for Anna’s program we had to write a paper on Horse Psychology.  The moment I heard the assignment, I knew I wanted to set down on paper some of the amazing healing experiences I have witnessed and facilitated as a certified equine gestalt coach. On September 17th, 2012 I began writing my paper which I titled, Expressions of Horses as Healers. It flowed out of me; I cannot tell you how easy the words came.  One sentence in particular kept haunting me. Speaking about what I have watched the horses do, I wrote, “Science is not interested in us yet, but when it is, we will have the experiences and the stories to offer.”  And thus was born, Healing Horse Registry International, the registry of equine’s divine talents, for that is how I view this miracle.                                               Please feel free to visit Annette’s business website at:

Brenda Moberly.   I have been blessed to have daily contact with horses, beginning when I rode my 10 speed bike five miles out of town and purchased my first two horses at the age of twelve with babysitting money. I have been horsing around ever since. I have ridden horses in relentless terrain rounding up cattle, ridden bareback in Denver’s downtown St Patrick’s day parade, and won high point in pleasure and speed events in a highly competitive Gymkhana club.
One of the most enjoyable activities I have with my horses is just spending time with them, being in their presence, and being present with them. I have experienced first-hand the incredible healing horses can help us humans achieve. I know God designed my calling to be with the horses, to help them and humans alike, through being in their presence. Words cannot completely describe the miracle and profound healing the Good Lord has blessed these beautiful creatures with. I know they are an extension of his love and have helped me through gut and heart wrenching trials in my life.
I have raised and conditioned horses to show and have won futurity money with foals I have hand raised. I have spent much time researching genetics during the course of my breeding operation. I am very excited for the opportunity to compile data to document the different healing modalities of the horses. My goal is to compile the information that we receive, to see what traits are a common factor in the particular healing modalities the horses have, or perform.
I feel this Registry is a way I can give back to the horses and help empower them, so that people who are  not aware of their healing modalities, may view them in a different light, giving the horses the opportunity to help and heal many more humans in their walk of  life.
