Allison and Starr–“they made me feel like I could open up and be myself. The staff was so nice and gentle. They made me feel like I could do anything and accomplish my goals. To them my thoughts and opinions mattered, they wanted to hear what I had to say.”

The horses–“I learned a lot about horses during my lessons. I loved how the horses showed how they felt through body language and how I should approach and act around them. The horses were so beautiful, sweet and sensitive in a good way. They accepted who I was from the very beginning
