OUR MISSION

Horses As Teachers:

As prey animals, horses have the ability to pick up on subtle shifts in the emotional environment and mirror it.

Horses are sensitive non-judgmental teachers and when interacting with a person give immediate honest feedback.

Activities with the horses provide interactive and experiential insight into parallels from Biblical truths and our own human lives and relationships.

Participants recognize, consider and practice the process of gospel living during interactions with the horses.

A strong bond is developed, empathy is acquired, and connections are nurtured at a deeply personal level between horse, human and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose

To serve God by providing an opportunity for individuals to connect with horses as a means of experiencing who God really is and understanding scriptural truths about the Lord as written in the Bible. We want to glorify God through sharing our belief in Jesus Christ; the source of true hope and healing and to proclaim the gospel through faith in action, prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our Horses

Most of the horses at Back of Beyond are rescued or retired show horses. Their riding days are over. They still, however, have much to give and many things to teach people, young and old.

Our Funding

We offer these programs at no cost to participants, however, donations are gratefully accepted.

Equine Assisted Biblical Soul Care

Our programs offer a platform to equip couples, families, and small groups to build up the body of Christ with Biblical truths. A certified leader, through prayer and the leading of the Holy Spirit, provides and adapts activities to suit individual participants and meet specific goals.

Participants are guided to correct Biblical principles and challenged to go deeper through specific questions initiated by the horse’s reactions and are then led to discover and internalize gospel truths.
