My name is Tracy Wood and I am a born and raised farm girl with a lifelong love for horses (cows too!) and helping people. I grew up riding horses, showing beef cattle in 4-H and enjoying the everyday of life on the farm. Horses, cattle, agriculture and helping people have always been my passion. That’s why I do what I do! I am so fortunate that my life allows me to bring all these passions together. As a certified Equine Assisted Learning facilitator I offer a wide range of programs to meet clients needs. Through interaction with horses, reconnecting with nature and experiencing the beauty of life on the farm, I can support others as they cultivate their new beginning!
Chance is a 13 year old Quarter horse gelding. Chance joined us in July of 2016 after he was retired from his career as a Champion Goat Tying horse due to arthritis. In our short time together we have quickly come to know Chance as our guardian. His character is strong & bold and he is large both in size & heart. For some people this is intimidating but in reality once you take the time to open up to Chance, he connect and he is with you as a strong and steadfast partner. I learn something new every time I work with Chance and I can only imagine the gifts he has to offer others.
Snuff is a stout 15 year old bay Quarter Horse gelding with a kind and gentle nature. He is wonderful to work with in the arena and reads his human team mates very well, offering a challenge when needed or can lighten up the mood with his quirky personality when things get a little tense. He loves the attention he receives which really helps people build their confidence and connect with themselves.
Shirley joined us in the fall of 2015 After he was retired from a lengthy career as a ranch gelding. A been there done that kind of horse Shirley is still a character and has proven to challenge and have fun with participants. He is a great asset to our EAL team and loves the attention and grooming he receives in the arena.
