This foundation is an absolute godsend in my life, the therapy is effective and the results that it produces are profound. I grew up around horses and am an experienced hand with them, however, for this experience, I found that experience wasn’t necessary, for the horses are there to help guide one in their journey towards resolving the issues that burden them.  As a combat vet with PTSD, I have truly experienced healing through the power of this program; the horses bring about a peaceful tranquility that is unparalleled
