We engaged the Swan Center Outreach to conduct a leadership day for our Talent Management team on a beautiful summer day in the Rockies. The soul of the property, the animals, and the staff met us upon arrival and stayed with us throughout the day. We have taken lessons from that day and incorporated them into our Programs that we offer to our leadership teams across the company. We thank the Swan Center for everything they do for the animals, our community, and the environment.

I was blessed to be a photographer invited to take photos of the Swan Center Outreach horses and grounds. Driving up to the ranch, the scenic beauty and good energy just kept getting better. John Longhill spoke to our group about what to expect, and what was expected of us, before we would begin any activities on the ranch. I looked this man in the eye and listened from my heart, as he spoke. John shared what the center was about, and how we should be in touch with our own energy arond the horses. I was touched by the kindness, and spiritual awareness of John as I also fully embrace the oneness of of life. Later when actually moving around the center and taking photographs I just felt how nuishing the atmosphere of the entire experience was to myself and others. This is a wonderful place serving, and connecting animals and people each with their respective needs to be healed in some way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it more available to those in need. Help them finacially to feed the horses and tend the ranch.

Our organization took our teen girls from Houston to Denver, and one of our activities was at Swan Center for an experience of a lifetime. Some of our girls had never been on a horse. They were able to groom the horses, feed them, and then ride them. Mr. Longhill educated our group before we interacted with them because we learned that not only can interacting with the horses be therapeutic for our girls, but for the horses as well. It was an amazing experience and Mr. Longhill was so kind.
