The Inspiration Behind Rescued Hearts
I once witnessed a miracle when a 7-year-old autistic child spoke their very first words while interacting with a horse, and it forever changed my life.
After hearing countless stories of people who have experienced miraculous transformations in the presence of these majestic animals, I began to wonder, "Why do horses seem to impact humans so deeply, and what is it that creates the healing effect?"
My partner, Krisanna, and I are award-winning filmmakers, and together we are embarking on a journey to better understand the horse-human connection.
Our film will share powerful stories from those who have experienced incredible transformations and those who have dedicated their lives to this work. We'll speak with scientists on the cutting edge of research that is proving why this connection is so powerful and share tools to help us access our healing power within.
Rescued Hearts isn't just the story of horses; it's the story of all of us and the power that lies within to create healing and transformation in our lives.
