Finding Hearts Farm Expands Riding Program

Finding Hearts Farm, located at 2727 Thurston Road, will be expanding its facilities and program offerings this spring.

Owned and run by the Bazan family, Finding Hearts Farm offers a unique riding program that centers on teaching communication between horse and rider through the development of confidence and understanding. The hallmark of David Bazan’s teaching is riding with more emotions and energy than physical cues; once understanding and confidence is achieved, communication and riding becomes better. “There is no greater joy than seeing people develop a trusting relationship with their horse through positive, healthy communication that can overlap into the issues they face or have faced in their daily lives,” he said.

This spring, look for a new 80 x 140 foot outdoor arena, office, and covered tacking area for private lessons. Students and riders at Finding Hearts Farm range in age from 8 to 72.
Also coming soon is a new Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Mental Health Program that uses ground-based interaction with horses. A certified equine specialist through the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), David Bazan has experience working in conjuction with local therapists to provide clients a safe place for therapy sessions outside of the office setting.
