Equine Inspired Experiences for Individuals and Organizations

Unbridled Pathways, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, was created in the Fall of 2022.   Founder, Leeanne Gardner felt a growing sense of disconnection and lack of authenticity in relationships within our communities, and was compelled to do something about it.  Based on her personal experiences, Leeanne knew she could could accomplish this through creating safe spaces where humans can learn life lessons and gain wisdom from the horses. As herd animals, horses epitomize a sense of presence, authenticity and coherent relationships with one another all with no judgment. Imagine that! We have several generations of children who were raised on technology and we feel the equine interactions will help shift the energies and create stronger future leaders resulting in more cohesive communities.  The pandemic took a toll on adult relationships as well.

Our Unbridled Pathways equine assisted learning experiences have a profound impact on people, as you can read in the testimonials below.  Visit our Events tab for upcoming public experiences or reach out and we are happy to customize something for you and your group.

Our Purpose 

Our purpose is to help people learn the importance of authentic connections in a very disconnected world.  We invite people to “feel” again with a lot of help from the horses.

Our Mission 

Unbridled Pathways creates and facilitates Equine Inspired Experiences for Individuals and Organizations (EIEIO). These experiences cultivate authentic connections with no judgment, resulting in stronger relationships, sense of well-being and healthier communities.

We’ve all heard “it takes a village”, and in collaboration with other charity organizations and ranches, a village is what we are creating.  Our larger goal is to create own healing ranch with living spaces, gardens and a safe spaces for animals and humans to come together and support the community around us with our equine assisted services. We don’t provide “equine therapy”. Our focus is on equine assisted learning experiences that focus on improving mental health and enhancing our ability to connect with one another.  The horses act as free-lance therapists.

If you would like to contribute to our mission or are interested in being part of movement please reach out, we would love to talk with you.
