About Pastures of Hope

Reflect & Renew


Pastures of Hope is a place where women get to step away from the noise and distraction of the world and find restful recovery and renewal. We specialize in helping clients heal from past trauma, emotional issues with food, relationship stress, and coaching through changes in their lives, while sharing a sacred space with horses.  It honors the reality that humans learn best by doing.  Each of our programs gives clients the space to project and analyze their situations, make connections, and find their own solutions as they move among these most empathic and intuitive creatures. 

You don’t have to have any experience, skill or knowledge of horses to learn the techniques we teach. Whether you're seeking ways to balance life, manage stress and anxiety, improve your perceptions of food and body image, or simply to relax from day to day pressures, we have a program that will work for you.


Experience Hope


Equine assisted activities interwoven with traditional cognitive therapy allow clients to heal through experiential learning as they engage in an equine environment. This is not a riding program, but one where clients work alongside the horse as issues and solutions reveal themselves.


Experience Health


Changing how we relate to and perceive nutrition is key to working through unhelpful and unhealthy beliefs about our bodies. At Pastures of Hope in Springfield, our HEALTHY MINDS | HEALTHY BODIES program is a safe and caring program to help women with all types of eating disorders. Equine assisted programs offer an entirely new and effective way to health and wellness!
