EQUINE LABYRINTH: From left

Public can help build equine labyrinth in Coombs

There is also a build-a-labyrinth workshop being held May 2, 3 and 4

Down a long rural road in Coombs, past a small bubbling creek and a blueberry farm, there lies an ancient, winding pathway that is therapeutic for both horses and people.

An Equine Labyrinth is currently being completed at a facility that does healing work with horses.

The pathway will consist of 7,000 stones that will be big enough for two horses to be walked or ridden through.

The project was the brainchild of certified labyrinth facilitator Holly Carnegie Letcher, who passed on the challenge to four students in the local Pony Club, who will use it to satisfy their math requirement in the Collaborative Education Alternative Program.

Student Anwyn Woodyatt said she’s enjoying the process.

“I like the building part,” she said. “To see it come together after all the work we did.”

The community can contribute by bringing stones this Sunday April 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to 1514 Winchester Rd.

There is also a build-a-labyrinth workshop being held May 2, 3 and 4. The cost is $60. email pathways2wellness@bell.net for more info.
