Led By Horses

Through a weave of healing traditions and her dynamic style, Laurie Higgins-Kerley and her team create sacred community with horses and humans in partnership so you can access your true nature and live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Laurie and her team of incredible Equine Facilitators offer individual coaching sessions, custom-designed workshops for staff and executives, and wellness workshops at Dove Creek.

Invest in YOU, in your sacred journey called Life.




Coaching Sessions



Laurie and her team are dynamic healers and teachers who combine their life-long passion for horses with decades of experience in various healing modalities. Our mission is to help you overcome limiting issues, inspiring learning in a joyful and compassionate way, so that the life skills you develop can be sustained over time.

Helping you through life’s transitions individually or as a group, our “horses healing humans” approach helps people break through debilitating patterns and access their goals and dreams. 

Our group retreats held at Dove Creek Ranch include a creative weave of equine-facilitated coaching sessions, yoga classes, nature-based ceremonies, group discussions, art, and delicious healthy meals prepared by a certified chef.  Immersed in the awe-inspiring Tierra Blanca canyon, the ranch house provides comfortable accommodations for individual and group lodging. We do many different “themed” workshops and retreats that can be customized to your needs. The combination of the canyons, the horses and donkeys, the wildlife, and of course the people, you can’t get a more all-inclusive high sensory memorable experience.  We are an Oasis located on the high plains of Texas – book your appointment or retreat today!



“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman


Concept of the Circle: A universal symbol in many traditions, the wheel or circle is a map representing interconnection, continuity, and harmony. This is also an accurate representation of the horse, who is an integrated sentient being living in the present moment. This framework helps us see that everything is connected, and by understanding this we can begin to heal our fragmented mind, body, and spirit. The circular concept of healing and learning explores and integrates mind, body, spirit, and emotions with the horse as partner and guide. This paradigm offers us an invitation to take a journey to find balance and harmony within ourselves. Through that, we remember the sacredness of Life.
