The Gypsy Horses of A Wizards Spell Ranch in Burleson, Texas
have an exceptionally astute, sensitive, calm, smart, and loving nature.
Because of this they provide immediate feedback.
If you are a member of our military suffering from PTSD, TBI, MST, stress/anxiety, family issues,
stressed, unhappy, angry, feeling grief or lack of self-esteem,
having personal or family issues, or work life issues, the horses will provide you an opportunity
 to develop insight into your particular challenge and take control of it.
Due to their ability to act a a biofeedback machine, you cannot fool a horse.

Join other veterans, spouses, and their families
along with an Equine Specialist, Counselor, or peer-to-peer support group and of course,
the Gypsy Horses to see if there can be a difference in your life.

Some of Our Favorite Sayings

In Praise Of The Horse
Ronald Duncan

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
friendship without envy,
or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle
and strength by gentleness confined.

He serves without servility;
 he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent;
there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.


From Carl Gustav Jung, Father of modern psychoanalysis.
from The Undiscovered Self, 1957
Perhaps this explains WHY this program with horses works.

" The source of numerous psychic disturbances and difficulties occasioned by man's progressive alienation from his instinctual foundation,i.e., by his uprootedness and identification with his conscious knowledge of himself, by his concern with consciousness at the expense of the unconscious....he forgets himself in the process, losing sight of his instinctual nature and putting his own conception of himself in place of his real being."
