Jodine’s journey into equine-assisted therapy began in 2016. When a riding student’s Aunt came to watch as Jodine & her student play with her horses at liberty & suggested Jodine add this to her program.  Her deep connection with horses and a profound understanding of the therapeutic benefits they offer led her to establish Gaits of Hope Equine Assisted Therapy Program, a haven for individuals seeking a holistic approach to mental health and personal growth.

At the heart of Jodine’s practice is a belief in the transformative power of the human-animal connection. Her therapeutic approach combines evidence-based techniques with the intuitive wisdom of horses, creating a unique and effective healing environment. Jodine is dedicated to fostering a safe and supportive space where individuals can embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformational healing.
