Our Horses

It takes a special type of horse to become a therapy horse. Not only does it need to be accustomed to many people nearby but it also must have excellent body movement.

Testimonials

The horse therapy has made a very big difference in my daughter.  The biggest change I have seen is her body is not as rigid—she is more active and that allows her to interact more with her brothers and sisters. Her muscles and tendons are loose!  I am thankful for your help and hope you continue with the program in order to give the special needs population a better quality of life.

Many thanks to volunteer Sylvia Apodaca for translating this message.
