Review for Saffyre Sanctuary, Inc., Sylmar, CA, USA
I love Esta, Karen (lead volunteer), and Saffyre! The loving work they do to help heal the horses they have helped rescue, as well as truly guide other volunteers and visitors to really understand the partnership we can have and the things we can learn from these fantastic, loving creatures. Saffyre teaches the caretaking of horses both physically as well as learning their emotional needs; but in doing so you learn about your own. When you have a loving, mutual respect for these grand horses, you discover a lot about yourself as well. Esta is a fantastic guide and will show you what it takes to care for and learn all there is to learn. Some folks may not fully understand or grasp the spiritual approach at first, but when you see how Esta and her team interact, and you open your mind to what can be learned, your world will open. And this kind of interaction is one everyone should eventually be able to appreciate, because they are lessons that you not only use with the horses, but with your human relationships as well. Patience, kindness, perseverance, intuition--all are things that can be improved when you pause and just enjoy the moments interacting with the horses here at Saffyre.
