Victory Hill has been an absolute blessing to my family. My husband (NYC Firefighter) deals with a roller coaster of emotions and PTSD from work. I can see a very obvious change in his attitude and demeanor since he started working with Mercury (his favorite horse) and Laurie. He's much more relaxed and aware of how his body language affects the harmony in our household. I have VH to thank for that but also for the changes I am seeing in my son. He has Sensory processing disorder. He wouldn't go near our dog because of an extreme fear of animals, had issues following directions and screamed the moment he became overwhelmed or over stimulated. Slowly but surely Laurie has given him the tools to simply BREATHE through his discomforts and give himself time to process what's being asked of him. He now feeds our dog, takes her on walks and looks forward to his visits to the farm to feed and interact with all of the animals despite their size. I could go on and on about the amazing things happening to us because of Victory Hill, but its best you see it for yourselves. It did not all happen over night, but the improvements were consistent and definitely a result of Victory Hill's programs. I'd recommend this amazing organization to everyone I know.

My daughter and I have been volunteers at Victory Hill since their opening. Our time spent with both the horses and the students has been extremely inspirational and fulfilling. The horses receive exceptional care and the riders needs and safety are a top priority. I would recommended Victory Hill as a therapy barn or private lessons in a heartbeat.
