About Equispirit Horse Farm
Equispirit is a quaint and peaceful horse farm whose mission is to enrich lives personally, professionally and spiritually through the way of the horse. Our motto is "helping horses help people." We practice Equine Guided Learning and Enlightenment- a holistic approach that synergistically fuses the power of the human horse connection with the principals of experiential learning, nature based healing, cognitive behavior strategies, health, wellness and life enrichment. The cumulative effect from these powerful experiences aid in our personal growth and healing and enables people to shift into making positive change.
Through her vision, Maryellen Werstine (owner/facilitator) and her herd of intuitive horses have created a sacred space where human, horse and nature come together in harmonious union. Equispirit offers a variety of workshops, programs and classes design to heal, empower and enlighten your mind, body and spirit. We accommodate individuals and groups, young and old, riders and non-riders and anyone seeking life enrichment.
Mission: Enriching lives personally, professionally and spiritually through the way of the horse.
Equispirit Healing Horse Farm is located 15 miles south of Gaylord along the 45th parallel. The setting is nestled in a quiet forest of rolling hills in the beautiful wilderness of northern Michigan. It is one of the most elevated spots in the Lower Peninsula. This gives the farm a serene and tranquil presence where you can experience the healing energies of nature. Adjacent to thousands of acres of state land makes this healing horse farm a private nature retreat through all seasons of change.
Vision: To create the sacred space where human, horse and nature weave together in harmonious union.
