Dear EFMHE Community,
I grieve the loss of my treasured colleague and "Bestie" friend, mentor
and teacher, Ann Alden. She helped change the face of the way we engage and
interact with horses. Her clear language, "we work with - not do to" ; Ann
facilitated perception of horse as sentient being. Ann's large
compassionate heart allowed access to diverse people animals and programs
who heard and embraced her clear thinking and practical skill building
success. Ann bred and raised some of our southern Arizona's finest
effective and talented therapeutic activities horses. Talented athletes her
horses were full of Heart and Desire for human interactions. Saddi,
Crackers, Serra June, Abbah and Maude are infamous in the annals of
therapeutic activities and wellness work.
Many PATH conference attendees in Phoenix a decade or so ago met Crackers &
Serra June as they joined presenter Linda Kohanov as she introduced her
innovative round ring dancing.
For me, Ann was the friend who never said "No" to my ideas. Always ready to
brainstorm and encourage thinking through she centered and guided action
down a good trail.
I miss you Ann and delight in daughter Kelly's notion of your angel duties
continuing to open Awareness.
Huge Heart Hugs,
Barbara K Rector
