Medicine Hat Horsemanship is a sanctuary for equine understanding, horse and human education, healing with horses, and we rescue, rehab, and re-home horses in need as well as offer healing programs. All of the horses in my program except my personal horse are in fact rescues who were rescued either from the kill pen-from our fellow horsewomen/men who rescue horses from this sad fate, or home that could no longer care for them. We help physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually rehab the horses who come into our program, and then find them good homes after extensive screening. My policy is the horse does not leave, unless its a better situation than we can provide.
Come get involved, dive deeper into your self understanding, learn more about your horse and what they're communicating or just simply come meet our healing herd!
The horse knows. She knows if you know. She knows if you don’t. -Ray Hunt
Meet Michelle Founder of Medicine Hat Horsemanship
Whether working on bettering your horsemanship or journeying more deeply into your life,the horse is a benevolent and wise teacher if we are patient and quiet enough to pay attention.
Michelle Peterson has been a student of the horse her entire life, and shares the teachings horses have shared with her through Medicine Horse Journeys, Horsemanship Lessons, Horse & Human Education (training) and Horse Care.
Michelle is a blend of extensive solid foundations, knowledge, patience, presence, and most of all Heart. She offers healing workshops and retreats with horses as the space holders and guides as well as horsemanship teachings for new horse students as well as horses and their humans. She is committed to helping humans forge a bond with horses based on the principles of clear communication, heart, and gentle leadership. She helps both beginner and experienced equestrians deepen their understanding of their horse and themselves leading to better horsemanship and self awareness as well as journeying pilgrims garner a greater understanding within through the guidance of the wise medicine horses.
