With the temperament of a lamb and the patience of a saint, Caesar is my true partner in this work. He is a large, gray quarter horse with eyes that reflect his trusting soul.
His first EFP experience was with a child who I had not been able to help using play therapy in my office. During two months of work with Caesar, this young boy found his voice while gaining enormous confidence and courage.
Caesar has the ability to gently yet profoundly mirror client's strengths and weaknesses. He has demonstrated repeatedly his expertise as a facilitator promoting self acceptance and healing.
Calysta came to me after working hard as a roping, penning, jumping and trail riding horse. She is a lovely therapy partner who continues to show acute sensitivity to the needs of our clients, effortlessly connecting to everyone. This darling over twenty year old mare has the wisest and sweetest heart who draws the loving attention of any person or animal she comes into contact with.
I am so happy to introduce our newest therapy co-facilitator, Baron. This affectionate gentle giant has already shown me what an incredible asset he will be on our team. His zen-like personality acts as a powerful empathic mirror to everyone he meets. He makes me believe he was sent by Star to continue his particular kind of good work.
Co-facilitators in Spirit
STAR: Star's passing has greatly affected us all. He was my favorite riding partner, always allowing me to safely push my own limits. His gentle presence and willingness to work make him a particularly effective EFP partner. We miss him everyday.
BANJO: Banjo, who now resides in Wyoming, taught me that letting go is not giving up. The lessons I learned with him will always influence and enhance my EFP work.
GENERAL: General's generosity and patience are now given to dozens of boys who compete for the opportunity to attend to him. When not serving the Boy Scout summer camp, General may be found grazing deservedly in a beautiful meadow.
