SOPHIE

Sophie will challenge clients who are not fully connected to their own bodies, emotions or who are not fully in the present moment with her.

Earaheedy Sophie was rescued as a 3-4 month old foal on drought stricken Earaheedy Station in Western Australia. She was found with her half-sister Lilly by vet Dr Sheila Greenwell who was doing recon work with a view to save the wild horses on the station. Sophie spent the rest of her first year in Sheila’s care, before coming to live in Bridgetown with me (at Wadi Farm Equine Learning Centre). At Wadi Farm Sophie was reunited with other horses who had been rescued from Earaheedy Station including Margaret, Lorna, Darrah, Betsy and Norma.  Sadly, in the intervening years, Margaret and Betsy have left this world.

The mares continue to live at Wadi Farm and contribute to the equine experiential learning programs I deliver at the property. Sophie is now a mature horse who has had 1 foal who remains with us (Aleppo). Due to her Percheron influenced genes, Sophie changed colour from dun to grey to white as she has matured (like all of the Earaheedy horses). Sophie has been trained to saddle and enjoys interacting with clients of her choosing for equine experiential learning sessions and retreats.  Sophie was the inspiration of my first book “Horses, Heartache and Healing”.

Sophie will challenge clients who are not fully connected to their own bodies, emotions or in the present moment with her. To enjoy more photos of Sophie please visit the Heartland FB page where each horse has their own photo album.
