alive means restoring the body, mind, and spirit to balance
and wholeness: the balance of life energy in the body;
the balance of ethical, reasonable, and just behavior;
balanced relations within family and community; and harmonious
relationships with nature."
Ken “ Bear Hawk” Cohen
Medicine Horse Ranch is located on a historic fifth generation 1000- acre working cattle and sheep ranch in beautiful coastal Tomales CA. Being on land and in nature offers quiet reflection that nourishes and rejuvenates the heart and spirit. Participants who are drawn to our programs are often seeking peace, balance and clarity through a transition or life changing event.
Horses have been evolving for an estimated 50 million years—a far longer time than humans have inhabited the earth. It is indisputable that since horses were first domesticated, perhaps 6000 years ago, they have become inextricably linked with humans, and contributed more than any other animal in shaping our history. Our historical connection to this sentient animal reminds us of our own endurance, dignity and nobility.
As our industrial need for the horse has greatly diminished, these amazing animals seem to be transforming themselves once again. Programs incorporating horses as teachers, coaches, mentors and guides have risen dramatically in the last decade, coming into sharp focus as credible educational and therapeutic modalities.
Activities with horses provide metaphors and mirrors for real life experiences in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Partnering with a horse is fertile ground for developing new practices that re-build trust, deepen authenticity, leverage strength based skills and encourage self care.
Medicine Horse Ranch offers a wide variety of Equine Guided Experiential Learning Programs that encourage participants of all ages and from all walks of life to regain, rediscover and refine personal and/or professional pursuits, dreams and ambitions for the sake of creating actions and beliefs that are in alignment with health, happiness and right livelihood.

This was the absolute most amazing, mind blowing, heart opening experience of my life! I've been a student inside many self development classes & over many years, and never experienced a teacher with more dedication, facilitation skill, guts, horse sense, or compassion than Alyssa Aubrey. Her love for her horses and her horses trust for the human being is palpable. Many of the insights that came to me over the weekend were new and riveting. Other reflections I have had before, but this Equine Guided delivery system puts in out in a way that is so compelling, I must now stop procrastinating and DO something about it. I will be a Medicine Horse Ranch fan forever, and no doubt return many times to the classroom of equine wizardry as facilitated by Alyssa. Thank you, I am forever changed and grateful.
