"Personal enrichment" is a term that often gets associated with the continuing education or non-credit classes (such as photography, flower arranging or cake baking) offered through many colleges and universities. But what do these two words really mean?
The official definition of the word personal reads: "of, affecting, or belonging to a particular person rather than to anyone else."
The official definition of the word enrichment reads: "makes something more meaningful, substantial, or rewarding."
How can a standard class that's offered publicly and addresses a standard topic ever truly be personal? But what if every aspect of a learning experience could truly be unique to YOU? What if you could organically become the co-creator of such an experience without having to do any research, planning or prep work? What if the experience could engage your whole being (body, mind and spirit) in a never-to-be-repeated-or-duplicated way? And what if you could continue to engage in these uniquely personal experiences each and every time you showed up? At Unbridled, this type of "personalized" learning experience is not only possible, it's inevitable.
And what about enriching? How does the Unbridled experience make your life more meaningful, substantial or rewarding? Almost everyone who spends time with Kim and the horses mentions leaving with feelings of deep inner peace, inner awareness and inner connection. Other common remarks involve statements about greater personal insight and a deep sense or faith that everything is going to be alright. Here are a few direct quotes from recent participants:
"Touch, gentle and loving, has always been important to me and before my session I was very excited about touching and connecting with the horses. It took wise Shoki (the herd elder) to remind me that touch isn't the only way to connect. Standing by someone, standing with someone, and standing for someone are also important parts of connection. How did he know what I most needed to understand in my life right now?"
"Before my first session at Unbridled, there is no way that anyone could have convinced me that I could learn so much from horses! In just a few hours I learned about acceptance, respect for others and myself, kindness, taking things as they come, that it's OK to walk away, it's OK to say no, how to 'just be' and the need for quietness in my life. I'm still amazed how different I felt afterwards in comparison to how I felt on my way to the farm!
"The hands-on day I had with the horses at Unbridled was life-changing and powerful. There is no other way to describe it. It is difficult to even put into words what it meant to me. It was definitely amazing."

"The entire experience was very enriching. The interaction with the horses was eye opening and heart opening. I was struck, especially, by their ability to connect with us on our terms and the feeling that they were somehow aware of our needs."
