About Me

My Photo
North Lawrence, New York, United States
I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals! Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Horse Church TV

Here is this morning's "TV." Breakfast in the barn on a Sunday morning, awesome. Happy Horse Church Sunday! 

After breakfast, I will feed the horses. Then, horsey play time, stall cleaning (including washing walls and dusting), horse videos, and anything else I can think of starting with the word, horse.

What do you do anyway?

People often ask what we do here at Natural Horse Lover Farm. I often struggle to explain it all because we are a very non-traditional horse farm and we are also way more than a horse farm as we have many services and classes for non-horse people. But, we are known by our name and have no plan to change it! 

Our mission is to  provide comprehensive knowledge resources, events, and services to support the holistic care and education of people and animals. We are dedicated to offering collaborative support for exploration, discovery, and life-long learning skills to all people interested in a natural path for themselves and for animals.

This includes but is not limited to classes, workshops, lessons, and healing sessions on many subjects such as multiple topics and disciplines with horses, Reiki, crystal therapy, essential oils, red-light therapy, and much more!

I am a tree-hugger horse person

I read this good article on Facebook first and my response to it is below.

A Natural Trim on Your Barefoot Horse. Is Best Done by You


I guess I am one of those tree-hugger horse people and am proud of it! I have been trimming my barefoot horses for many years and with no regrets. 

My horses have never been lame, never have abscesses, and frankly, have never had any other issues related to the hoof that many horses unfortunately experience. When needed, I have used hoof boots; I prefer Old Macs. 

My practice and principles have extended to all ages and several breeds too, Thoroughbreds, Arabians, Quarter Horses, Mini horses....you get the idea. It offers my horses great care, gives us time together, helps build our relationship, and much more. It is not just a trim but an experience that impacts them in many levels. 

Yeah, at Natural Horse Lover Farm, we live outside the box and color outside the lines, with principles and purpose, we have fun and enjoy ourselves daily. I used to live the traditional way and practiced everything horse the way everyone else did but no longer and I have never looked back. 

Everything I do with horses now has a reason behind it, is natural (to the best of my ability), keeps the horses dignity, spirit, and health intact, principles before goals always, and thankfully, we are living happily ever after in our fairytale life. ❤️

Book Your Reiki Classes and Treatments Now!

I am Michelle Young, and am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher. I own Natural Horse Lover Farm in North Lawrence, NY with a focus on holistic care and education for people and animals. 

Reiki is a Japanese technique using gentle hands-on healing method with hands gently on or slightly over the body. Reiki is the channeling of Universal Energy for the purposes of healing. It is safe, effective, and beneficial for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs and can be used for any issue you or your animals may have. It is not a religion nor is it a replacement for medical or 
veterinary care.

Regarding the Reiki offerings (as I offer many other modalities and services), I offer Reiki classes levels 1, 2, and 3 as well as mentoring programs for all levels. My classes are taught with a people and animals focus, structured akin to a college class including a textbook, lecture, hands on work, a class website with additional resources, and homework! I also give Reiki treatment sessions in person as well as distance treatments for people and animals. I am willing to offers place as a location for Reiki Shares too should this group want to get together in person.

Meditate with your animals!

From Meditation Techniques on Facebook, "A fan asked what constituted "meditation"...was it really just focusing on your breath?"

Their answer:
"The main purpose of meditation is to quiet the mind so that you can reconnect with your inner self.  What or how you find is the best way for you to make that connection - is a form of meditation.  It is suggested that you simply start with NOTICING your breathing.  We rush around each day and never even notice how consistently and beautifully our breath is there for us - sustaining us.  It is a meaningful way to also connect with your life force...since it is this life force that is also what makes us who we are.  I hope that this helps in answering your question!  My best to you.  
Now, breathe..."

Now here is my addition to this wonderful response:

This is a great explanation of meditation. To add to it, when meditating with your horse, dog, or other pet, you will also notice their breath and the patterns of your entities will come together, in unison. You will begin to breathe together, to relax together, to become one. Try it, it is wonderful, and it should be part of your ritual. 

If you have no idea how to start, please contact me. I can work with you and your animals to achieve this new skill and sense of consciousness.
