I am on information overload. The presentation was paced perfectly, Lisa and Shelby left adequate time for questions. The presentation was respectful of other methods and programs which added to the integrity of their program

You will receive all the same information as the online seminars, PLUS a day of hands-on training with the horses of Whispering Ponies Ranch by the side of experienced handlers of Seven Oaks Farm.

Whispering Ponies Ranch is a private retreat center where horses are trained for various therapy uses and people of all ages can attend by invitation for restorative ministries. All amenities – from food service and lodging to expert recreational and counseling staff – are provided at no cost. Tom & Nita Horn envisioned WPR as a safe and inspirational environment where people can be rejuvenated or just relax for a few days to get refreshed. The therapy ponies of WPR visit places like veteran’s centers and care facilities and are used in public schools to help children with learning disabilities.

I would highly recommend Lisa Moad’s seminar for everyone from beginner to more experienced. From individual to group organizations. She & 7 Oaks have had many years of experience that participants can learn & benefit from.
