At Woodsunwinds, our wellness team focuses on the importance of individual uniqueness. We design exercises to build self- confidence and emotional and physical strength. We can accommodate individual or group sessions. We utilize hands-on equine experiences in tandem with natural horsemanship techniques & psychology to facilitate our program.

Janet Jones owns and operates Woodsunwinds Natural Horsemanship Farm. She has 35 years of experience training horses and their riders and 40 years in customer service. She is an expert horse handler embracing a lifetime of practice with horses including training and boarding horses, teaching riding lessons, and of course, riding herself. She is a Parelli Natural Horsemanship Level 3 Practitioner and is a member of the Parelli Natural Horsemanship Savvy Club.

Janet practices natural horsemanship, a training method emphasizing non-verbal body language communication, rather than fear, intimidation, or mechanical devices. She is known to take young horses or horses with serious problems and seemingly “work miracles.” Her training method has resulted in calm, trustworthy, and gentle mounts — ideal for use in therapy sessions. Her areas of expertise are safety of horses and their riders, horse/human development, and body language communication.

Janet is also the founder of the Woodsunwinds Horse and Human Wellness Center, which is host to numerous equine-assisted activities including Stable Journeys Hippotherapy, experiential psychotherapy and learning, parenting skills, and horse and human Reiki and massage. Janet is married and owns 3 horses (Mercedes, Dandy, and Dancer).
