Welcome to That Zen Farm!

A Horse Can Change Your Family’s Life

All families run into challenges — some small, some big. It’s important to remember that in all challenges there is an opportunity for growth, compassion, and a resolution that will carry everyone toward peace. The wisdom of a horse can help you and your family arrive safe and whole on the other side of trauma. They carry in their hearts a magic that can foster expression, compassion, love, healing and connection. 

You’re in the right place …

Is your family experiencing:

• The growing pains of the teen years?

• Parental disruption caused by separation or divorce?

• Special needs challenges?

• Relocation?

• A traumatic life shift?

Marcy Waelti

I have always thought of myself as a caregiver and a compassionate person full of love, with my feet well rooted to the ground. Through my life I have learned to be strong in heart and soul, to branch out and grow, and live in the right now. My life course has taken me from horses to motherhood, to early childhood teacher and childcare center owner, then back to teaching Horsemanship. The path to become an Equine Gestalt Coach was a natural progression of my journey. I have learned to listen, with my ears and my heart. I have learned to ask questions and aid people in digging into their lives and find those things that may be blocking them from living life to their full potential. My horses and I help them find peace and connection with their lives. Horses are amazing healers and partners. Come and see what they can do for you, even if you have no experience with horses.

I have seen how family strife can tear families apart. All the years as a parent, grandparent, an early childhood teacher and 50 plus years of teaching horsemanship to typically developing children and children with differing abilities has given me insight into many family dynamics.
