Nothing compares to the opportunity I received to learn from you and get to know some great horses on
a totally different level.

Michelle Buegeleisen - you truly are incredible. what an absolute labor of love your ranch is, and how
grateful I will always be that Rachel Robertson (and Shorty and Grace and Molly) were such frequent
recipients of your kindness. As horse people we have experienced many barns and stables over the
years. I truly feel that yours is absolutely one where it is run from the heart

Michelle runs the – hands-down – best natural boarding operation I’ve been to or hear of.  Some of these
horses had really hard lives and several had very challenging medical conditions…Michelle offeres
tested hay, and many of the horses are on balanced minerals, most have great barefoot trims…Harvest
Moon is a great ranch for both the horses and their owners.

Thanks for today, I really enjoyed seeing your place/ranch....wonderful energy and lovely horse teachers
you have surrounding you.  I've learned to never question who or what comes into your life because they
are always here to teach/learn from...I have a deep feeling you are one of the big hitters that's going to
make an impact on my life's journey and Johnny's (of course he's the one who brought you here isn't
he?).....thank you sooo much!

…you deserve a gold medal for doing what you are doing for those insulin resistant horses especially, but
all the horses there. Seriously, I can't even get some owners and even vets to take the whole diet thing
seriously and here you are providing just what those horses need to keep them as sound as possible.
Without the low carb hay, they are in danger of foundering again. I'm preaching to the choir of course, but I
just want to let you know how awesome you are for taking such great care with all those special horses!

I have been a client of Michelle's since Sept. 2006; I started with horsemanship lessons, and then riding
lessons with her. Now I board my 3 horses at Harvest Moon Ranch!  I was a "used-to-be" rider, who
spent many years with horses, but then was away from horses for most of my adult years. When I finally
decided the time was right to let myself experience that joy again, I looked around for many months trying
to find a place where I wouldn't have to be embarrassed about my new-found anxieties, or about how
much horse-sense I had lost. I found Michelle's website, and just by reading the stories of the horses at
Harvest Moon I could tell that this was a place that I would feel safe: just like a rescued horse, I had fears
that could have been debilitating. But working with Michelle, I found that even when my fears surface, I
always feel safe. She is an excellent teacher: she has a gift for communicating the lesson in a way that is
easy to grasp , and she is patient, calm and reassuring. In October I myself adopted 2 rescue horses, and
for a time I had them in boarding near my home in Petaluma. However, I found that I worried a lot about
my horses, and about my ability to work with them safely and effectively. I was fortunate that Michelle
had room for my horses at Harvest Moon, and they have been there since April 2007. Rescue horse #3
joined my mares in August! Since the horses have been at Harvest Moon, I have enjoyed true peace of
mind:  I know that Michelle and her staff care for my horses with utmost diligence and compassion, just
as if they were their own. Michelle has helped me so much with many specifics like horsemanship skills,
and basic training issues, but most importantly to me she has helped me grow as a horsewoman and as
a person. Harvest Moon is my favorite place to be, and that is because Michelle has created a place
where horses and the people who love them are safe and supported.

When I got hit with a resurgence of chronic insomnia, my sister suggested I sign up for energy healing
with Michelle. I've tried just about every cure known to man. So finding Michelle's approach felt like hitting
the jackpot. I highly recommend Michelle's sessions; they are life-changing! Her approach is unlike
anything I've come across in my 20 years in search for a way to heal. Michelle's gifts are amazing, and
SPOT ON. She has an uncanny ability to zero in, cutting through the clutter. Michelle helped empower me
to energetically perform what feels like "spring cleaning". She was also the first person to have me to
THANK my body. Sit back, tune in and really listen to what my body was trying to tell me. She helped me
map out my energy, and clear energy I didn't even realize was there. When I'd leave her sessions, I felt
such a huge shift in my being, the most comfortable in my body I've felt in years. I have made Michelle's
meditation/visualizations a daily practice, as they make a profound difference in uplifting my life. Things
just flow more smoothly across the board, as Michelle predicted. :) Aside from sleeping soundly, there
have been so many miracles coming into my life, now that I've learned how to empty out. Wow. The added
surprise bonus, I'm more empowered in my relationships too. In a word: Michelle ROCKS! And her Harvest
Moon Ranch has one peaceful, idyllic vibe to boot!

Hi, Michelle
I have been thinking all day how you have created such a wonderful
sanctuary for horses and their people. I just wanted to express how amazing that is. I am sure everyone
tells you that and its true. You’re so cool, good to see you the other day,

I am a CPA with years of experience as an auditor. We're trained to be extremely skeptical and deal
ONLY in "evidential matters" meaning, there has to be tangible proof or it ain't real. We're worse than
scientists - they can imput reality/truth from their tests. So, I tend to take most things with a grain fistful
of salt.

So....a tiny bottle-baby kitten, Her name was Neo. She touched Michelle and she offered to help. She was
able to talk with her several times and was right on point. In one conversation she told Michelle she
wanted to live, but wasn't sure her body would let her. In another, she told Michelle she wanted to go
home and live with me. (She'd been in foster care when she wasn't in the hospital). I said she could, but
asked her to tell Neo that she had to be able to eat on her own. The very next meal she sucked down her
entire bottle after needing to be tube fed for several days. It was astonishing. Sadly, she was right about
her body. It did fail and we did lose her.

A month or so later, I called Michelle in a panic early one Sunday morning. My Barn owner had sent me
an email that she was weaning my filly that morning (against my express wishes) and I was really
worried about their safety. The ranch does not have any means for totally separating the mares and
babies and both of my girls are very willfull. I asked Michelle to try to talk to them and tell them to co-
operate and be calm! When I arrive (45 minute drive - they'd been apart about 2 hours at that point) they
were both completely calm. (I was NOT!) Everyone kept commenting on how calm they were, and - aside
from one instance - they stayed calm. I have no explanation for it other than Michelle.

I've come to believe the gift exists - and Michelle has it.

I was very skeptical, but when I got the reading for ***** tonight, I sat and cried for 45 minutes. ***** is a
clearly troubled horse. Michelle's "talk" with ***** was incredibly accurate, and told me things I
suspected, and many things I didn't know, but are understandable from what I know about her. None of
this can be even close to guessed. In any case, her reading has changed my life and ****** significantly.
Anyone interested but skeptical, anyone with a loved animal, please do it.
***** is no longer the same horse. She went from disconnected, avoiding, and really unhappy, to ears
forward, attentive, and willing. Put me on the skeptic reform list.

Michelle, you're a Godsend. Thank you.

I am in the midst of having Michelle work with my problem puppy. . .and. . .a little with the other 3 dogs in
my dog family. ****** is a special-needs puppy that came with health and emotional issues. Michelle has
done a great job in connecting with her as evidenced by her calmer behavior and our being able to get a 6
- 7 hour uninterrupted night's sleep. This has been long-distance healing work. I highly recommend

Michelle.

Yes she is very good- would love to have the entire household done.
There was a big difference in ****** after her reading.

I have read thur these readings about 6 or 8 times - and I am amazed at how accurate they are!  I must
say I was a skeptic..............

Hi Michelle-
Oh wow, thank you so much! Hearing what my guys have to say is so helpful in this whole process.
Thank you so much! This is so spot-on...especially about Traveler and his jobs. He really could do
everything- I wouldn't be surprised about packing, either! And Lucky's last weeks really make sense. It's
so tough to read, and I'm crying as I type, but it's so comforting to hear from them………Thank you so so
much. I really, really appreciate it. You really do have an amazing gift! Thank you!

Michelle,  did a reading on Ty and my other horse a few weeks ago, and based on that, ( AND my current
disability), I've rehomed him with the original trainer I had. He has several young men who ride for him,
and they just LOVE TY. Ty indicated to Michelle that he'd rather have a male rider, and trail riding and
arena work doesn't 'do it' for him, so I suggested that they try him on some cows............or team
penning.........he wants to be able to use his mind and quick-footedness!
Her reading for Tory the Peruvian was right on..........she identified the leg he was lame on, and said it was
around the coronet band. The Vet yesterday found an abscess there on the heel bulb!!
