As a dedicated non-profit, Dove Creek Ranch and Equine Rescue continues to create new learning, training and rehabilitating opportunities to allow this beautiful Oasis to be shared with others.


Our Team






Laurie Higgins   Kerley


Laurie Higgins-Kerley founded the rescue in September of 2012.  She was profoundly changed from the times spent with a small herd of horses who assisted her in the healing of her broken heart after the loss of her husband in 2008. Laurie realized how much horses give just naturally to people, especially when vulnerable and in a broken state. Her insight and reflection ignited a desire to assist them in "their world" - those that needed a second chance, some time to mend, to heal from the hand that life dealt them. It seemed Dove Creek was the perfect place for this to happen. It didn't take her long to gather support and form a board, file a non-profit certification, and get to work! 



Equus Wisdom and Coaching

With Laurie as your facilitator, take a journey with Horse as co-facilitator to explore your inner landscape and reveal your authentic self.  As herd animals, it is critical for horses to live in the present at all times using their sensitivity and emotional intelligence to survive.  Possessing this acute sensory awareness and authenticity, Horse can teach you to become more present and reconnect with your inner wisdom and intuition.  Their gentle but subtle way of communication creates a safe and intimate space for you to open your heart and FEEL the power you have within.

Come experience the way of HORSE and take the opportunity to:

* Gain clarity with a new awareness so you can move forward

* Create new patterns so you can live life with more intention

* Explore your passions and dreams, illuminating your path with purpose

Initial session 2 - 3 hours $250 subsequent sessions 2 hours $185
