My experience with Doc Happy was amazing. I am new to experiencing horses, and I quickly got over my nervous feeling with Happy’s calm, loving demeanor. He licked and nudged some spots I was feeling pain in. Then I felt energy coming from the crown of my head to my heart, where I then had an overwhelming feeling of love, safety, and overall peace. Thank you JoyAn and Happy for this wonderful experience. —Jennifer M.

We started the session with a centering exercise which helped me to be fully present to receiving a healing. I  was still integrating & processing an intensive workshop experience. She had me sit quietly in a chair & her horse Happy slowly approached me. His gentle presence helped me relax & then a magical healing started to happen! I suddenly felt like he was pulling away from me whatever was left from the training I needed to release. His mouth & jaw started to move in releasing motions, & his legs started twitching & shaking off & grounding whatever needed to be realigned & recalibrated! I walked away from the experience feeling a peaceful wave of Bliss washing over me & very happy! –Sheila Simon, RN, Energetic Healer

I loved my time at the ranch. I had not been close to horses for the last 25 years, but JoyAn was so helpful and she eased me into it. We meditated with them and groomed them, which helped my fear disappear. The 3 horses are adorable and so loving, I will definitely come back —Maria M.

The deepest and most powerful group I have ever meditated with was with 8 Tibetan Buddhist monks. There was a deep stillness and peace I had never felt before. To my amazement, JoyAn’s horse Doc Happy was an even deeper meditation experience for me.  After petting him for awhile, I felt myself going into a very peaceful, still place within me. I felt like his heart was much bigger than mine and capable of loving in unconditional ways that I still had to learn. I felt like he was connected to Earth much stronger than I was. I felt very relaxed, calm, and at peace…I have never had such an experience with a horse before.–John S.

Happy approached me very quietly with exact precision. He came into my personal space as I sat in a chair in the corral. Very systematically he moved his huge head and gorgeous nose around my shoulder, then slowly moved to the left side of my head as if doing a study of the area and a healing. At times he would touch me and sometimes he’d just be close and breathing near me. As some point he was through with his treatment, and it was incredible. I can’t wait to have another healing treatment from Happy. –Trudy P.
