What People are Saying…

“When I met Jake, I had spent 10 years addicted to drugs and alcohol. He genuinely cared about the person I was and wanted to help me get sober. I would not have been successful without Jake and his sense of accountability. Jake’s care and willingness to show me a different path and be a friend change the trajectory of my life. ”


“Horses sense integrity and respect. Jake’s character knows what that means, and he has the ability to share that with everyone. Jake works from experience and knowledge, but most importantly, Jake works from the heart.”

Jane Derry, Serenity Vista Rehab

“This experience with Jake was amazing. As a mom, teaching my kids to be bold yet in control is a tricky lesson: meekness and power under control. It’s important for me to teach my kids that even when hurt and brokenness can leave stains on their hearts not so easy to scrub off, there can still exist in them courage power and possibility unhindered from those experiences. Thank you, Jake for giving them the opportunity for them to discover that.”


“As I have come to know Jake / his life story and his passion for horses, spiritual growth, healing of mind, body and spirit – Emerge with Horses brings you into your wellness with love, respect and grace, about your business.”

Fr. Mark McCone Sweet, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church

“My inability to do anything or have the power to change the situation had me struggling to get out of the pit of quicksand. That day I spent with Jake and Buddy was my breakthrough. Since that day with Jake and Buddy, I have been feeling better motivated, emotionally intact, and happy overall.”
