Kama Godek LLC
Located in Upper Facility with 20 Stalls and Indoor Riding Arena.
Kama Godek has competed in some of the most prestigious venues in the world up to the CSI5* Grand Prix level including the HITS Million, Lanaken World Championships for Young Horses, WEF, Wiesbaden, Hamburg, WIHS and The National Horse Show.
In 2007 she started her own international equine sales business, Kama Godek, LLC, where she facilitates International riders finding top sport horses. Many horses which she has produced and shown have been sold to leaders in the equestrian industry including Paul Schockemohle, Scott Stewart, Andre Dignelli, The Ehnings, Scott Brash, Stacia Madden, and Dahlma Malhas (the first female Saudi to show internationally).
Since moving back to the US in 2012 Kama’s team has continuously produced some of the best horses and junior riders in the country including 3 of the 4 riders on the 2016 Zone 3 ‘Prix de States’ team, the national junior jumper finals.
The team is fortunate to have a solid staff behind the scenes. Working student Abby Grabowski, in the short space of three years, has gone from backyard rider to competing in the high junior jumpers while assisting grooming responsibilities at major World Cup shows for Kama such as WIHS, Bromont Canada and the HITS Million.
Kama has spent over a decade teaching and showing in Europe and obtained a German Trainers certification from the Westfalian Rider and Driving School in Münster Germany along with the USHJA trainers certification given by the USEF. Her extensive knowledge comes from growing up around horses and working with former Olympians and top international riders Laura Kraut and Katie Prudent. Originally from Fairfax Station, VA, Kama Godek is a graduate from the College of Charleston with a focus on international markets.
The team offers full service training and sales for an elite group of riders and horses at all levels who seek a tailored program to fulfill their highest potential.
Equine Facilitated Therapeutic Services
THE EQUINE GESTALT COACHING METHOD (EGCM®)
Located in the lower detached barn.
NORTH LIGHT COACHING is a private therapeutic coaching practice featuring the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM®). EGCM is a unique and deeply effective form of personal growth and emotional healing. In this method, an EGCM-certified coach guides clients through an exploratory process to identify what is causing pain or preventing success or happiness. The NLC horses actively participate, partnering with the coach to raise clients’ awareness of what is true and assist in the transformation of deeply held pain. Clients are able to resolve the unfinished emotional business of a lifetime and transform patterns of behavior and relationship that are unwanted.
No horse experience is needed and you will not ride the horses during coaching. EGCM is not psychotherapy. It can be used with or without a therapy program.
EGCM is offered onsite at Ohana Equestrian Preserve by North Light Coaching, LLC (NLC). NLC clients are healing post-traumatic stress injuries, developmental trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, and challenging family dynamics. NLC is a trauma-informed practice, serving military and civilian adults, couples, families, and teens.

For Inquiries, please contact Luke at (949) 892-7495 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3 Sisters Micro Farm is a year-round operation that specializes in
growing hydroponic microgreens. The micro farm is located at
the beautiful Ohana Equestrian Preserve in Aldie, VA. Whether
it’s a scorching hot summer or a below freezing winter, 3 Sisters
Micro Farm grows consistent trays full of living microgreens.
Year-round operation, regardless of weather.
Microgreens are grown hydroponically without the use of soil
or fertilizers. Seeds are grown indoors on coconut coir pads
with purified filtered water.
Trays of microgreens are delivered still living so that the chef
can utilize the entire order. This helps reduce the waste that
processing microgreens can create from spoilage. This also
allows the nutritional value of the microgreen to stay fully
intact until the time it is used.
