You have made my daughter's outlook on life so much different! She is more open, vocal and self confident than I ever thought she would become. She has grown leaps and bounds! Anyone with a special needs child needs this experience, not just for their child but for themselves and their family.
My daughter has never willingly gone so easily to strangers and enjoyed something so much!! These people have an amazing gift. And to watch the kids faces when they interact with the horses is just so precious. Such a great program and we are so thankful for it!
