Meet our Program Director, Gina Little
Gina Little took over Dream Power as the CEO and PATH instructor January of 2009. Her special interest is those who have suffered abuse and trauma. PleaseCLICK HERE to read her story and programs she has added to Dream Power.
Gina is a Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor through PATH International and a Certified Peer Support Specialist in North Carolina. She opened her first business at 22, is an accomplished artist as well as published poet. Her goal is to bring as many of her talents to the table while empowering others to do the same so we all may share in the multi-layered benefits of our work. Through her personal healing process from childhood sexual & physical abuse, Gina knows the pains and pitfalls found in struggling to find healing for herself. Gina has taken her experience of healing from a wounded and disabled victim to an empowered capable person and created programs to help others and their families. Gina’s experience with her own daughter’s journey also motivated her to create a program not only for young adults and women, but also for families and children so as adults they don’t needlessly suffer or continue the cycle.

I have helped countless entrepreneurs develop and succeed in business and therefore in their personal lives to build the legacy and wealth, in their own sense of measurement. Our families and communities are stronger when our individual freedoms are protected and our sense of responsibility is encouraged and supported. In my non-work time I spend time with my girlfriend, my family, 2 dogs, 10 horses, a miniature donkey, and 8 chickens. I try to squeeze in time on the firearms range and supporting the political and social activities of those I feel work to support my shared beliefs.
We have a smidgen under 10 acres with an outdoor arena, 10 stall barn, house/office, meditation labyrinth, 5 pastures AND trails.
Our very comfortable & down to earth facility is perfect for the relaxed & natural horse/human connection that is healing for all involved.
Everyone that comes here says first thing how peaceful & comfortable they feel here ~ that this is a perfect place for a Therapy barn.
