Our Facilitators

Rita Moore

Co-Creator and Equus Coach

I have always loved to learn, grow, and help others do the same. As an educator I dedicated my long career to helping children, adults, and families receive the educational, social-emotional, and behavior supports they needed to thrive.

And then something happened… I became completely intrigued by equine assisted therapeutic learning after witnessing and experiencing firsthand the powerful transformational changes that occur. I became determined to learn more about the strategies that effectively changed my thoughts, my patterns, my life! I became committed to share this transformational opportunity with others. I love the work I am doing in partnership with horses. It is such an  honor to support someone’s journey as they learn strategies to break through the boundaries of their own thoughts to find true joy and purpose in their desired life.

Sandy Schulz

Artist and Potter

Chesterfield artist Sandy Schulz is a specialist in an unusual Navajo art that uses real horse hair to decorate pottery.  “It’s an ancient design technique used by Native American tribes to honor the birth of a great horse,” Schulz explains.  The technique used to create horse hair pottery does not require glazing, and according to the artist, results in pieces that have an “earthy, authentic feel and spirit.”

“I invite people to participate in the process,” Schulz says.  “They can come and actually help to create the finished piece.  It really is quite special to them.”  Each piece of pottery holds a special connection between the people helping to create it and the horses who inspire them.  Healing spirits seem embedded in Schulz’s work.
