"ALL sentient beings feel and express equally. ALL are enlivened by the same divine source and life-force. When two beings meet in the state-of-grace and calm, there is a soul-energy-exchange, creating the potential to balance, heal and uplift. The destiny of the animal-human relationship is to assist each other's evolution as spiritual beings." ~ Madeleine Marentette

Meet our Horse Whisperer and our special family of Rocky Mountain Horses from Kentucky
Having lived with, studied and trained horses since 1983 and with his own herd of eight Rocky Mountain Horses, Richard thanks his mentors John Lyons, Monty Roberts and his first horse "Dusty" for their invaluable insights and enduring lessons. Guests rave about their special time on the beautiful trails, and Richard for his insightful conversations around the special relationship between human and horse.
Sweet Gracie. Little horse, big spirit. Gracie is of the most gentle heart, always willing to give the most inexperienced or hestitant rider a memory that transforms, and never to be forgotten.
Maggie May - in memory
Ours since she was a foal, Maggie passed away in November 2016. She stole our heart and we will always remember her firey spirit and the joy she brought to so many of our visitors.
The Rock. Leader of the pack, protector of his domain, affectionately called 'SB' by Richard, short for 'Salad Bar'. Because he believes all foilage is there for his endless eating pleasure.
Son of Magnum, International Champion. Choco Doc was showcased at the the Royal Winter Faire in 2002, responsible for the Rocky Mountains winning horse of the year.
Beautiful palamino and our leader horse on the trails, Natasha is a picture of beauty with a gait of grace. This photo was taken at the abandoned marble quarry at the top of the Grail Springs property.
“Some of my earliest and fondest childhood memories involve a kitchen chair that I would ride sitting backwards with shoe laces as reins. That trusty steed and I would ride for countless miles soaring over open meadows and rocky ledges in perfect harmony. I am truly blessed to have been able to bring those early imaginings to my daily reality here at Grail Springs. My teachers have four legs, eyes that contain galaxies, hearts willing to connect and fill and spirits that can match a little boys dreams. I look forward to sharing the Grail herd and their teachings with everyone.” ~ Richard Capener
