Testimonials

I had the privilege of attending a workshop at the Wisdom Horse Ranch, Arizona, during the Winter, 2007. I found that Jacquie is uniquely suited to facilitate this work! She is incredibly insightful, generous with her caring and very wise. She and the herd provide an emotionally safe process to develop self awareness, learn coping strategies and facilitate change. The location of the workshop is, in and of itself, very restorative. If you love nature, you will love this place. It is the desert at it's most beautiful. And, well, there are the horses. The herd will teach you things about yourself, in the most surprising ways. They will mirror your issues, and they will do it in a way that is honest, accurate and non-judgemental. All in all, I loved my experience. As a counselor in private practice, I am regularly privileged to witness clients undergo a therapeutic shift. During my weekend with Jacquie and her herd, I was delighted to have that experience, personally. I absolutely recommend The Wisdom Horse Ranch workshops... I came away having grown in clarity and confidence, how cool is that?!

I am still experiencing healing through the affirmation and self-awareness that began in my grief work with Jacquie and her horses nearly six months ago. The healing has continued, and the truths made evident in this experience have supported me as I have continued to build my life around them and the trust that Jacquie helped me create with her expertise and deep compassion. I am grateful for Jacquie's transformative touch.

Jacquie Braly is a skilled facilitator who well understands the transformative potential when horses call us to the inner journey. She supports the unfolding of the authentic Self to allow the deepest connection with the horse, with others and with our own creative processes. Her work with people and horses is filled with grace and magic!

Jacquie's personal brilliance and warm heart encourage others to shine and open themselves up to new possibilities. Her knowledge and understanding of this work through the Way of the Horse is exceptional. Anyone coming to Jacquie and her magnificent herd of horses should expect some “life changing” opportunities for growth and expansion.

The Epona workshop is definitely a gift that keeps on giving. I really enjoyed it and felt that it was very powerful. I know there was a lot I took away with me (some of which I'm certain was, and is, at an unconscious level). But the piece I feel has made the biggest impact is how conscious I now am of people's (as well as animal's) personal space. I've always been somewhat sensitive to this, but the work we did has brought me to a whole new level of awareness and respect both in my work and my personal life. As a result, I am now also able to give myself permission to be bolder in my interactions without having to wonder if I'm being appropriate (which was a big factor in the way I've limited myself).

Never having been around horses before, in the way we were at Epona, I was quite apprehensive about the whole experience. Your certainty, compassion and obvious mastery around horses put me, and my mind, at ease. With your support and confidence in me I got to feel safe and supported and was actually able to find my way to having fun. Thank you for an amazing and very impactful learning and growth experience.

Being welcomed into the hearts of Jacquie and her herd has helped me access and connect to the living heart within. Their abundant generosity of spirit exudes strength, knowledge and compassion, creating an environment in which to explore one's deepest inner yearnings and longings, allowing for movement beyond one's limited preconceived notions of possibility. Through my work with Bay and her son Kaboom, I was able to witness and come to terms with the diversity of feelings I have experienced in my role as mother. The readiness and willingness Buddy displayed in engaging in a working relationship with me, allowed me the chance to feel a sense of commanding presence within myself that had long been forgotten. The memories of my experiences with Jacquie and the horses continue to thrive and influence my life. I am truly grateful for the chance to work and play with them.
