Ummmmmmm, if I paid for a visit to that place and then swallowed that amount of BS, I'd be sick for weeks! ROFL! But I bet it''s beautiful!

So, is it a bring your own weed or do they supply the mild altering chemicals that you are clearly on when there? Because all I could think was stoned hippies and I live and love hippies but I worry for the flower children. I am always impressed that the horses they work with don't hurt them more often.

I will be living near Lumby, 45 min from Kelowna. I got an internship out there at Lone Larch Akhal-Tekes.

I think I would die from not saying something stupid and totally crashing those poor people's dreams, if I visited that 'ranch'. LOL! So, providing that my new bosses aren't somehow linked in with these people (here's to hoping that it's not the case, they do sound as normal as horse people can sound), I'll just stay away from there.

Please don't base your opinions on BC horsepeople by this "Equinisity" stuff! By the way, they invented "Equine Healing", the rest of us and our horses are mere mortals.

Any religion and belief can be seen as loony, laughed at or bashed. As well as any religion and belief can be respected. I choose the latter, as long as beliefs I find no interest in leave me alone. Also, I see nothing wrong with people choosing to spend their money at the facility - who are we to judge that it is loonier than spending it to go to competitions, buying expensive gadgets or doing anything else that pleases us?

Looked at the pictures - the place is beautiful, the horses seem happy (why wouldn't they be? They are asked to do nothing, but roam and graze -that's a horsey paradise! :) ) and it seems to attract people who genuinely share these beliefs and find like-minded people there. Shoot me the very day I see anything wrong in that!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I think they have gone over too far for my taste, but I can completely see the healing properties of horses. Being nuzzled for treats is not going to cure cancer, but it does help with other things. And what a wonderful place for those horses to live.

Horses are indeed spiritual healers. Being stressed out drains you mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and that affects you physically.

Going home, being with the horses, being apart of something so simple, so true, is rejuvenating. It heals the spirit because you can forget about your stresses. Horses don't care about your problems. You can let everything down and just be. It is awful. I live about an hour away from my horses and my dogs. I rarely have contact with them. It is tough. I am tired all the time. I don't really want to do anything. I worry about way too much. And every now and then I get to go home. When I go home I work my butt off. I clean, I groom, I play and play and play, and I work, and I am active. At the end of this flurry of activity, everything is better. I am not tired. I am happy. "I can't afford rent." turns into "I can figure something out." I love the creatures I have here, but they cannot compare to horses for all they give me.

I think it is because no matter what happens, horses are a constant. Your world can be falling apart around you. People could be treating you bad. You could be experiencing all sorts of unfairness and trouble. At the barn, none of that matters. The horses are the same no matter what. The faces might change, but the environment is still the same. They don't care what your problems are, and they are what matter in that moment, so you don't care what your problems are either. One of the most peaceful places in the world for me is in my pasture with my herd. I have a place there that doesn't change. They are never upset that I don't keep in contact. If I am a week or a month away from them, I can still walk back to then like I was never gone. They are a true source of calm and peace.

This doesn't mean there are no problems at the barn and all horses are these wonderful gentle angels. Horses are horses. The wild ones, the crazy ones, the gentle ones. It doesn't matter what they do. Just by being what they are individually is still better for the soul than most people could be.

I have often wished I could find a group of people that functioned like I horse herd. Leave for a couple of months and come back like nothing happened. No one mad at you because you didn't write.1

You have a point Saranda! I definitely wouldn't go there, but the place is gorgeous and I doubt any of my horses would object to living there!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Totally man, I could just get that love at home for "free"(I do pay to the feed the beggers!) and not have to make the trip to Kamloops...tee he...

To each their own I suppose, just not my cup of herbal tea.

Saranda, how would feel about someone forgoing medical treatment for cancer but rather going to get cured by the "Equinsity"? I respect nothing that is goofy.
