Meet Our Team
Owner of Eagle Hill Farm and co-founder of Healing Hooves. Sally grew up in Maine but stayed in Maryland after finishing college. A life long horse enthusiast, she ran a boarding facility and competed in dressage and eventing. Returning home in 2003, she built Eagle Hill Farm and has been enjoying it privately. Compelled to share the experience of connecting with the horses, she opened the facility in 2017 to conduct equine assisted therapy sessions. Sally became certified as an equine specialist in 2017 under the Eagala model and now looks forward to completing facilitation training with ARCH.
2017 was a big year for Sally - in the fall she met her husband David Dyer. They married in 2020 and are looking forward to opening their doors to offer more options for equine interaction and the enjoyment of the farm's outdoor beauty.
New to the equine world after meeting his wife Sally in 2017, David quickly developed a love for horses, as well as an awareness and respect for their unique abilities. His previous experience includes a brief time spent serving in the United States Air Force where he travelled the country and parts of the world, He returned to New England and then home to Maine where he spent the next two decades dedicated to serving his customers and their equipment wherever their location. Now Eagle Hill Farm, set in beautiful Bowdoinham is his home, one he hopes to share with those interested in wellness, a love of nature, and personal growth. Having discovered first hand the powerful insight and experiences one can have with equine, David believes everyone can benefit from simple contact and time spent among horses.
