I started off at the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ranch just loooking to get a. horse to ride for my daughter and I. From my very first visit I saw how much love the owner has for these horses. So many of these horses come from a sad places or was on their way to be put down. I have seen many horses come in that are starving because of owner neglect. The transforrmation of these horses from sick to healthy is nothing short of a miracle. It takes a lot of love, nurturing, time and compassion to make these animals healthy again. There are a lot of caring people there from kids, teens to adults that volunteer there for hours but mostly because they truely enjoy and love these animals. For me personaly being around these horses are therapeutic for me. I can go there feeling stressed spend a few hours with my horse and leave feeling like a new person. I believe we get more from them than they do from us....
