A career focused on horses is not for the faint of heart but the rewards are many and can last a lifetime.
Ten women. A comfortable ranch setting in Arizona. Lots of horses. It was the perfect formula for a memorable weekend retreat. What made it unusual was that the attendees all hoped to resolve personal issues and find healing through horses with the help of ranch owner Melisa Pearce.
Every horse person knows that our equine friends have the ability to make us feel better, no matter the cause of our mental anguish. As teenagers we shed tears into our horses’ manes, and as adults we ponder problems on long, quiet rides or while wielding a brush to bring out the shine on our BFF’s coat.
