• Passionate Reins for Change, LLC

    With Grace and Guidance...there is Hope!

     

    Welcome to PRC, your neighborhood outdoor classroom utilizing horses to facilitate a personal learning experience. The core purpose of Passionate Reins for Change, LLC is to give people a place to explore their inner spirit through two of God's most amazing creations; nature and horses. The goal is to help create an atmosphere of connection and truth. I stand for a hope in a higher power, gratitude for life, and trust that when you seek, you will find. PRC is a place to find encouragement, hope and guidance while on a path to emotional, physical and spiritual wellness. Here you will get a glimpse into life as seen through the eyes, ears, hooves, tail and body of a horse. What you will experience will be a taste of "living in the moment" as horses do 24/7

     

     

  • Covid-19 Update

    We are still meeting out in nature with fresh air and freedom to connect at a distance

    For Equine sessions at Mckittrick Farm:

    • Due to the fact that these sessions are outdoors and socially distanced (6ft apart), masks are not required. However if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, feel free to do so.

    • Please sanitize your hands with the hand sanitizer available upon arrival. Please wait by the stair leading into the red barn and I will come get you when your session time starts.

    • During sessions, we are practicing social distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart

    • The barn staff is taking all necessary precautions to keep the barn as clean as possible.

    Thank you for your understanding of these procedures as we navigate this unprecedented time to the best of our ability!

     

  • Who we are

    Your neighborhood outdoor learning center where we utilize nature and horses to facilitate a personal learning experience through coaching, equine assisted therapy and authentic horsemanship!

    Authentic Horsemanship

    Learning from the horses natural state of being as a prey animal and applying what you learn allows for transformation in the human condition. It brings mind, body, spirit together to help form the perfect you that God created you to be.

    Coaching with Horses and Online Coaching

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a partner that listens, is able to be vulnerable and speak truth while supporting your movement to reach your highest goals? Whether you choose to be in person with the horses or online, Linda will commit to sharing the journey and traverse the hills and valleys along side of you.

    Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

    This is an experiential model that involves using horses on the ground where they are free to give unbiased feedback to the client. This type of therapy fosters the freedom we need to explore ways of moving forward and breaking out of the old habits that get in the way of our authentic self. http://groundedstridescounseling.com
