In this episode I speak with AJ Millions from Leading the Way International. AJ does one of my passions, she has an experiential horse facilitated learning centre. AJ works with people of all ages and from many different walks of life. Her experience in life is extraordinary. It began on a large ranch in Canada with her Grandfather, learning how she did NOT want to train horses.
You will hear how AJ worked with first Canadian elders in a womens correctional centre where she assisted in an equine program to help rehabilitate women into society without reoffending and entering the cycle of corrections.
AJ has worked with so many amazing horse people in her life so far, one of which was Ray Hunt when she was only 18.
AJ has also been lucky enough to study with Linda Kohanov who brings such wisdom to any horse assisted therapy work.
AJ’s passion is working with at risk youth and you will hear stories of how she facilitates change with her incredible herd, for these kids who do not fit the current education system.
AJ also has a passion for making sure her horses are well taken care of in every way. Healing work can have a big impact on horses as well and we speak about the way Aj is able to care for her herd to make sure they do not have any negative responses or setbacks from this work as well.
To connect with AJ you can go to her website or Facebook page.
Here is a link to the book that she speaks of in the interview, written by Yvonne Johnson, one of the Women in the correctional centre in Canada.
