When West Taylor is on the scene, it would be hard to say who makes the bigger changes – the horses or the humans. West has dedicated his life to not only discovering how to communicate and train the wild horses, he also discovered and learned about himself. West would say that when working with wild horses, they have been teaching him as well. West practices and teaches the profoundly effective science-based horsemanship that will unlock nearly any horse and any rider.
Heroes and Horses inspires veterans to move beyond the difficulties experienced from years of war, towards a life of restoration and hope. This unique experience challenges these individuals, evokes change, and helps them to develop new ways to approach and solve problems. By challenging what challenges them, veterans can make peace with their past and replace devastating memories with positive ones.
West & Kami live on the Wild West Mustang ranch in a lush green valley at the base of Thousand Lake Mountain, located in the Fishlake National forest. West spent each summer of his adolescent life living here with his grandparents working cattle and sheep, changing irrigation lines and putting up the hay crop. Now the Taylors reside here full time, having created a magical experience for those who come to stay.
Together over 30 years, Kami and West strive to improve themselves and their relationship and through the trials of life they have certainly found “True Love”.
