  1. My life has changed dramatically since being brave enough to take over the reins of this incredible program. I wanted to help others – H.O.R.S.E. – Help Others Recover Self-Esteem.
    Everyday my life is changed and my heart is healed because of my time spent with the children, the horses and the incredible volunteers who run this program so efficiently and professionally and who are so willing to share their love, compassion, expertise and finances.
    I am blessed and honored to be a part of something bigger than myself.

We're building a community around lives changed, hearts healed. Please leave a comment.
