  1. I’m fascinated by the healing dimension of equine mental health therapy, and also love writing about the subject.
    The stories were quite touching – thank you for finding such a great article!
    No wonder it is a growing field throughout the world.

  2. There is a farm Oregon that has been doing this exact thing for a number of years called, Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. It’s run by an amazing woman, Kim Meeder and her husband and they have some amazing stories. She’s written two books full of the inspirational stories of the healing power of horses. I encourage you to check them out. The website is http://www.crystalpeaksyouthranch.org/.

    Horses are amazing. I often cringe to think about where I may have ended up had I not had my own horse to lean on in tough adolescent times. Thanks for sharing this article!
