Our Core Values
In today’s bustling world, there is nothing like being in the saddle with your friend. Our Core Values speak to why we do what we do: helping horses and their riders tap into the peace and understanding that heals from within.
To teach the student how to understand the horse’s thoughts and body language.
To tell the truth, to respect, to be consistent and accountable.
To feel and understand the thoughts of others.
To strive for empathy through the mind, body and spirit of the horse and human.
To have NO agenda and to leave EGO at the front gate.
At Wild Horse Mountain Farms, we teach so much more than just riding and horsemanship!
Our mission at Wild Horse Mountain Farms is to create a safe learning environment for both the horse and the human.
Compassion, empathy, respect and true connection are the corner stones of our teaching philosophy.
Our Mission is to help the client or student ‘look into the eyes’ of the horse and learn how to understand where the horse is coming from, what they are thinking, what they are feeling, so that they may earn their horse’s trust and create a willingness to want to be with us.
Our Mission is to help the client or student to develop a curiosity to learn and to give the horse and the human the time it takes to do so.
These are the daily goals that the WHMF team strive for.
