Equine-Assisted Youth Peer Support Testimonials

"I liked working with the horses because I always felt better after the sessions no matter what kind of day I had."

"I benefited from working with the horses because they helped me navigate through emotions and the sessions gave me tools to deal with life's curveballs, struggles and relationships."

"I think youth at risk should keep doing this because it can be a life-changing program and great way to vent. Not only that, it would help more teens cut down on drug use and instead of choosing drugs they learn how to deal/overcome their 'demons'."
