Windhorse Farm Philosophy


Windhorse Farm is the location for Dr. Lancia’s Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Program. Windhorse Farm creates a space in a peaceful rural setting to encourage change in individuals by expanding awareness towards their own personal healing process. These changes can be at an emotional, physical, relational or spiritual level. Healing that occurs at an individual level is brought back to other areas of a person’s life including family and community. Dr. Lancia’s programs at Windhorse Farm encourage the exploration of a deeper consciousness between mind and heart. The experience of working with horses allows an opportunity to address issues of balance, timing and feel. The power embedded in this deeper consciousness and self awareness with the horse allows individuals to create willing relationships based on trust, which allows the possibility of transforming fear into respect, and respect into more compassionate responses. When the human spirit connects with the horse spirit it allows transformation and empowerment of both involved. It assists with the reconnection to intuition and feelings while addressing issues like trust, leadership, communication, cooperation versus competition, respect and responsibility. Windhorse Farm respects and honors where the individual is in their healing journey and hopes to facilitate the evolution of this process. The horses and a natural environment are seen as integral to this process.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honours
the servant and has forgotten the gift."
