What is Equine Assisted Discipleship?
Equine Assisted Discipleship is a proprietary mentoring and leadership program, created by Beautiful Brokenness founder, Katy Pistole, that incorporates an equine (horse, pony, mule or donkey) in a Bible based, relational, healing program to assist humans in experiencing God's Abundant Life. Our beloved rescued horses provide powerful metaphors and analogies that allow participants to become deeply aware of God's perfect presence, provision and protection. You may take the first step in Equine Assisted Discipleship by watching The Brokenness Transformation, a free, secure 15 minute presentation that explains many of our analogies and metaphors.
Our definition of discipleship is: A moment by moment process where a human grows more and more aware of God's perfect presence, provision and protection. This process can be hastened through experiential programs designed to teach foundational biblical truth in an encouraging and practical way. Humans, like horses, must feel safe before they can learn. Beautiful Brokenness Ministries is a safe place for humans and horses alike.

"Being with Katy and horses opened my eyes to God's presence in a new and delightful way. I will never look at a round pen the same way again!"
