For each of our participants, their horse can be one of their most trusted companions, providing an unparalleled experience in their lives. The horses may look different on the outside, but they share a heart for the lives they change and the bonds they build with people facing challenges. It’s not an easy job, and for most of our herd, it’s a second or third career. Our horses are the heroes of our programs, serving faithfully in every class! To learn more about why we choose to use horses, read our blog post, “Why Horses?“!
