“During my time at Hamer Equine Assisted Learning with Annie, working
with the horses, my confidence and happiness grew, which soon showed in life outside H.E.A.L. With each session, I got to know everyone but most importantly, myself. My time with both Annie and Re have been memorable, I’ll never forget the advice and the fun times we shared. From last year to now, I really wouldn’t be the same person as I am without the company, I’m forever grateful. “
“I endorse my daughter Gabriella’s (Gabby) words of gratitude, to wonderful Annie and Mike, who for many months, have been very kind and generous in giving, probono, Gabriella the opportunity to work with their wonderful horses, Redmond and Halo, facilitated by their wonderful young therapist Re. We had looked for Equine Therapy in Melbourne, and we are truly blessed to have found H.E.A.L. in an idyllic property in Woodend. From the first session, the joy, twinkling in Gabriella’s eyes, biggest smile, talking excitedly about her first experience with Redmond, gentle giant, the connection she had with him and later with Halo, were psychologically transforming. I can Never repay Annie and Mike for the positive, and life-transforming change that has happened, in my precious daughter. She has changed from an anxious, self-harming, having low self-esteem teenager, to a young, confident, self-assured young woman, passionate about horses and thinking positively about her future. I thank God, for finding Annie and Mike, who I cannot thank enough, and cannot recommend highly enough. We are forever grateful and forever we will cherish our many happy memories, in our hearts and beautiful gentle horses.”

“I am so grateful that my son has the privilege to regularly attend Hamer Equine Assisted Learning with Annie as she has helped him with his anxiety in a professional and caring manner.
The growth and confidence Annie and her beautiful horses have given my son over many months is truly amazing and I can highly recommend this service to everyone that can benefit from such a therapeutic experience with these remarkable animals.”
