Changing Lives One Heart at a Time”

Grace Hill Ventures  seeks to improve horsemanship and life skills through

Growth, Relection, Awareness, & Communication with Equines




“Changing Lives One Heart at a Time”

Grace Hill Ventures offers individual horsemanship lessons, both on the ground and riding. We also offer activities for groups to explore using  non-verbal communication to practice  problem solving, creative thinking, assertiveness, leadership and teamwork. One has the opportunity to practice  being  more assertive without getting aggressive as well as developing life skills and confidence by interacting with horses..

Several times a year Grace Hill Ventures also hosts a variety of Clinic opportunities with leading professionals in the horse industry.

Horses provide powerful opportunities to address communication, social, life skills and other dynamics necessary for healthier and  meaningful relationships, whether working with individuals or groups.

Horses are social prey animals and humans are predators. Horses are hard-wired to read intent from our body language and are very adept at it, even from quite a distance. It’s how they have survived for millions of years. We can learn quickly how our actions affect others, by interacting with and by observing how horses act and react to others in their environment. Biases are eliminated that people often feel towards each other because horses don’t care how one dresses or what degrees one holds. Horses live in the present and don’t dwell in the past which gives us a unique opportunity to practice and improve our skill sets.

EAP and EAL are useful for treating addiction, trauma, social and behavioral disorders, team building, team building and leadership. These activities focuson experiential learning, doing, being active, in the moment and present, which helps clients quickly find new insights which leads to real and long lasting changes. Activities with the horses are related to what is happening with relationships at school, work or in the home.

Grace Hill Ventures’ goal is improving horsemanship and life skills through

Growth, Relection, Awareness, Communication with Equines…
