Thank You!

Thank you for offering these wonderful programs. I did one of your courses in person years ago and it changed my life. Per your advice, I went to a doctor for head injuries which happened over a decade prior, and finally got help for issues I was dealing with and never understood. I am so grateful for the work you do and the resources you offer. I really do feel empowered and have been working to help others myself. I am definitely going to recommend your courses to my co-workers, who all work with special needs children in a therapeutic riding program. Thank you again.
