Wellness at Wild Horse Mountain

One of my passions is studying medicinal herbs. I became interested in healing plants and weeds by watching my mustang, Luna graze in the pastures. Her knowledge of how to survive in the wild of the Coyote Lakes region of Oregon intrigued me and I began to study her selections.

To understand more on the healing power of herbs, I decided to take up studies at the American College of Healthcare Sciences, where I earned two certificates in Herbal Retail Management and Natural Products Manufacturing.

I am continuing my herbal studies and now I harvest many varieties of medicinal herbs at the farm. Each night my horses look forward to their herbal teas, and I am constantly researching new healing tea blends, oils, salves and poultices to help them maintain the most natural way to health that I can provide. My thinking is, we took the horse out of nature, and by way of my medicinal herbs, I am giving a little of nature back to them.

With the consultation and support of my equine veterinarian I am always researching holistic methods to assist with their wellness.

In the future WHMF will be hosting Equine Herbal clinics, where one will learn how to identify poisonous and nonpoisonous weeds and plants in the Pacific Northwest.

You will also learn how to make healing salves, bug sprays, teas, poultices and so much more!

“The best thing that I try to do for myself is to try to listen to the horse. I don’t mean let him take over, I listen to how he’s operating, what he’s understanding or what he doesn’t understand, what’s bothering him and what isn’t bothering him. I try to feel what the horse is feeling and operate from where the horse is at.”
