About Ravenheart Farms
Ravenheart Farms is is located approximately 15 minutes north of Kamsack, Saskatchewan, Canada.
We offer Equine-Assisted Learning, Equine-Facilitated Wellness, and personal life coaching with horses through a variety of programs, workshops, retreats, and nature-based educational experiences.
Partnering with horses can be a powerful and effective journey of self-discovery, recovery, and personal development, allowing people to gain insights and awareness into unconscious patterns, and to find alternative skills to draw on when faced with difficult life challenges. A variety of fun, engaging, and reflective activities with horses are facilitated in a gentle, respectful way, for individuals, families, and groups/teams.
Anyone can participate, and no previous horse experience is necessary and there is no riding involved.
The focus of EAL is not riding or horsemanship specific. All activities happen on the ground, usually at liberty (no tack or equipment).
Learning programs and sessions are available for your organization, teen & youth groups, residential programs, veterans, and seniors, that are leading-edge, effective and innovative.
I am the owner of Ravenheart Farms Equine Assisted Learning Centre & Retreat and “Lead Mare” here at Ravenheart Farms. My qualifications include being a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator, Certified Life Coach, Voice Dialogue facilitator and Reiki practitioner. I have a life-long passion for horses. My path to the “Ravenheart way” with horses began with my first horse, Raven, who came into my life when I turned 40. I was “horse crazy” as long as I can remember, and although somewhere deep down I knew I’d have a horse some day and live in the country, at the time I couldn’t see how it was possible. My dream horse was the Welsh Cob. Raven was a Sec. C Welsh Pony of Cob Type. I found many ways to surround myself with horses, including via my dream job as Media Coordinator at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta, where I loved every minute of those 8.5 years. I can still remember the elation I felt being paid for work I was so “over the top” excited to be doing.
As a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Specialist, Carol Marriott helps participants become aware of their energy while engaging with the horses. Horses pick up on our subtle body language and feelings such as tension, fear, happiness, sadness, anger, grief and confusion. Horses are always in the moment, and their “feedback” is clear, immediate, non-judging and authentic, based on how horses naturally behave.
Carol is a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator, Certified Life Coach, Voice Dialogue facilitator and Reiki Practitioner.
If you are fearful, a horse will back off. If you are calm and confident, it will come forward. For those who are often flattered or feared, the horse can be a welcome mirror of the best in human nature.

Ravenheart’s Rainbow Bridge
These are our animals who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge
It is always so hard to say good-bye to our beloved animals. Yet, in being remembered they live on in our hearts.
A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
