About Dana Hokana

As an only child of a single parent, who spent a lot of time alone, I became very close to God. I would reach out to God, and talk to Him and pray to Him. I had so many lonely times, full of so much fear that He became my refuge and my strength. I felt hope for a future when I was in His presence. I would envision a future with horses as I was very clear that my life would be connected with horses. In fact, my mother said my said my first word was, “horse.” As a child I would say that I will be a horse trainer and an artist someday when I grew up.

I started my career in my teens and often struggled with how to get through a problem with a horse. In those days there was no internet or DVDs to learn from. I found every books and article that I could get my hands on because I craved knowledge. I worked for a couple of good horse trainers but they couldn’t give me the knowledge that I was seeking. I literally had no where to go but to God. I would finish my day sometimes in tears. Tears because I could not figure out how to make this horse do what I was teaching him to do. I have no idea if I had talent or not, but I had a tenacity that just wouldn’t quit. I wouldn’t quit. I wanted to be a great trainer and horseman so bad. I wanted my horse to feel like one with me and I struggled for many years. I wanted to do it the right way. No gimmicks, no tricks. It took me years to learn how to teach a horse to bridle their head without a training air or cavesson.

I would ask God for help, sit out in the arena on my horse and just ask God to help me. Soon answers would just start rising up on the inside of me. Subtle answers to try this or that. Ideas would come to me that I never learned from anyone, but creative ideas that contained my answers! It was exciting and I know God has helped me. As books and articles came out I started reading and studying all I could. I also went and learned from some wonderful trainers. Trainers who were so kind to me and shared their knowledge. But none of this came close to what I learned from that still small voice, that voice that I know was God.

Through good times and bad, it is such a comfort to know that God is with me. He has helped me out of some hard times and has given me the desires of my heart!
