Katy Pistole enjoys time with Scooter, the dancing horse, during her ministry teaching for the Beautiful Brokenness programs.

A unique horse-themed ministry, Beautiful Brokenness, located at Sonrise Farm in Louisa teaches girls and women love, acceptance, identity, security and significance.

Katy Pistole, executive director and an ordained minister, says that Beautiful Brokenness, an independent, non-denominational, non-profit organization, is a disciple ministry that incorporates horses and ministries through teaching, counseling and demonstrations.

“The program consists of students and women coming to the farm to start a relationship with the horses and God,” Pistole said. “Showing them to know what it is to love and be loved.”

The Beautiful Brokenness ministry, established in 2010, offers one-day retreats, demonstrations, youth programs and individual discipleship opportunities.
