I had such an amazing time meeting all of the wonderful staff at Lasata and the tour and beautiful animals I got to see and touch. Therapeutic for me for sure!! Thanks, great work you are doing!!!
Luke and Adam had their first session last night. Adam did awesome and remembered everything he was ever taught about riding a horse. And of course was in his glory riding again. And Luke enjoyed connecting with Max in the stable. He has a true connection with horses in his own way.
Feeling so blessed and grateful on this Good Friday. First and foremost, in remembering how my Lord and Savior suffered and died so that I may be set free. Secondly, that I have the opportunity to go to "work" every day and come home more refreshed than when I left. Being able to walk along students, both young and older, and see smiles of joy and accomplishment, watch teenagers volunteer their time to help out on the farm and build relationships with horses and each other, and be able to work alongside such caring and loving people in this beautiful space.

Horse Hippie

Morning Mantra: "You can't feel fear or anger and gratitude at the same time." Quick -- look around you and think of three things for which you can be sincerely thankful. That was easy, wasn’t it? And in an instant, it has made you stop the flow of negative energy and replace it with positive. Think of how many of your most difficult burdens are largely of your own making. A situation is what it is. We react with fear and anger, which really only punishes us. Use gratitude to change your thoughts and mood. #BeGratefulInstead #BeHappy #BeHorsey #BeHippie #HorseHippie #MorningMantra #InspirationalQuotes


Morning Mantra: "Hope is seeing the light despite being surrounded by darkness." Yes, there is a dark cloud hanging over us these days. A big, scary, dark cloud. But, where there is hope, there is hope. That is to say that hope does not just occur, it is created by the hopeful. A hopeless situation changes, as soon as someone cares. As soon as someone believes they can make things better, there is hope. So do things that give you and others hope; call the elderly you know and offer to grocery shop for them, donate to local food banks for the kids out of school that need a meal, buy gift certificates to your favorite small restaurant so they have income during these difficult times. Whatever gives you hope, do that. #BeTheHopeTheWorldNeedsNow #BeHappy #BeHorsey #BeHippie #HorseHippie #MorningMantra #InspirationalQuotes

WARHorses - Women of Age Riding Horses

The power they possess to heal is unfathomable. Truly. We simply facilitate the space to allow them to do what comes completely natural to them. ♥️

Meeting people exactly where they are.

“When there’s nothing else, at least I can think, ‘Levon has his favorites and I’m one of them,’ “ Abigail said. “That gives me something that I didn’t have before.”

Another great story about the benefits horses offer people through therapy. This 13-year-old was suffering from severe depression and anxiety, then she met Levon. In her own words, "I don't think I'd be here today without him." I've read this three times and cry every time. This story is extremely touching and can serve as a reminder that help is out there, sometimes in unexpected places - like a barn.

Ann Montgomery

A number of years ago I had an interesting lesson with a student. The rider was struggling with getting a constant contact with her horse. After watch both of them move around the arena for a while and seeing the mare, chomp, and fiddle with her tongue and bit I asked the rider “where is your tongue sitting in your mouth? To this the rider stopped the horse and said ” how the hell did you know that” so it turns out that this rider has a gap in-between one of her upper molars and she has a habit of twisting her tongue to place the tongue in the gap.

When I asked her to place her tongue softly onto the top of her mouth the horse became quite in its contact and as the lesson went on the horse began to move freer in the shoulders, the rider’s tonal quality of her arms into her hand and fingers became a soft tone.

So why is this so, I asked myself, and did some research.

Why would the riders tongue affect the horses tongue so much?

Well from what I have researched the hyoid bone is part of the tongue movement apparatuses as the omohyoid muscle origin site at the superior border of the scapula and can vary in location and in size, and at times the muscle also originates from the superior transverse scapular ligament. The attachment of the central tendon can be only to the clavicle or to the clavicle and the first rib.

Wow I thought so when her tongue curls up a whole tension goes from her tongue down to her shoulder which must create a tension down her whole arm to her hand. This in turn puts a tension onto the rein and bit which travels onto the horse’s tongue, so guess what this also affects the horses hyoid bone and his omohyoid muscle into the shoulder causing the tight steps and fussy mouth. It’s a circle of tension.

Along with this is the TMJ joint of both parties again the hyoid bone, which is located in the throat latch area in the horse and upper throat of the human comes into play, as the hyoid connects to the larynx, pharynx and tongue and articulates with the temporal bone.

With the horse it’s more complex as the TMJ also has the ear movement involved so mouthy horses, head shakers or sensitivity in this area could be a having tension in this area, if the rider is tight in the hyoid or TMJ it should be checked out. If a rider is constantly clamping the jaw I often get them to chew gum to help prevent this.

I was so fascinated by this I asked Sharon May Davies to show me the hyoid of the horse on my last course with her. I was amazed how big it was and yet frail it was.

And so when the rider asked me “how did I know that”, it was a simple answer “the horse told me” but I did tell them the next day exactly why it was affecting her mare after doing some research. It’s all part of looking outside the box, to find a solution which works for the horse and can carefully guide the rider into a better place.

Sometimes the rider makes the coach look deeper as to the why something worked. Your gut feel can’t always be enough information for the rider. Also by having hard facts it takes away the mystical element of the lesson.

Knowledge talks,

He’s 13.
And he’s a whiz.
Today he taught me about light emitting frequencies and sounds and their he explored riding a new to him steed.
I learned gobs. As I do every time I am with him.
Here at Lasata we strive to exist outside the norm of typical. Because we have witnessed it is precisely where sound relationships are grown, where life change truly happens, and it is where lessons are learned that go far deeper than traditional teaching.
Be wise in knowing everyone is communicating all of the time. Some times through their words, but more often through their actions. Take the time to listen as oppose to simply hearing. You will be impacted significantly for good, as will those around you.
