Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self. For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour. Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.
