Welcome to Dark Horse, home of Mark and Bekah Maddox! We are so happy that you have checked in with us. We aim to create a safe and functional learning environment, where you can learn to "speak horse" and understand the way they feel, think, act and play!
We are proud to partner with and support Hearts in Harmony, Inc a nonprofit that facilitates "horses helping humans be empowered and equipped through grace and truth." Horses are such a perfect mirror for our own self-reflection and can teach us so many life-lessons. We are excited to watch these programs grow, and see what God will do through it!!
Here's a fun L4 highlight video of me playing with some of my kids in all 4 Savvy's!
