Meet Our Team

All of our team members are trained and certified through the international organization EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association). The team consists of a Mental Health Professional (MHP), an Equine Specialist (ES) who has extensive horse experience and our horses, the most important members of our team. Our MHPs are all Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC).

Bill and Mary Langford founded A Stable Journey to provide a safe and private place for area counselors to work with clients using horses. We strive to provide the highest quality counseling using the unique benefits of horses to enrich our journey through life.
