The therapy horse is truly the provider, the caregiver, the friend, the confidant, the magic, the joy, the love. Horses do not laugh when told secrets. They do not shun those who are a little different. With their therapy horse, participants experience true nonjudgmental love and friendship. For many riders this experience is the first such experience of their lives. Many pieces are so critical to a therapeutic riding program, but none more important than having quality therapy horses. Without these wonderful horses, there would be no Equest Center!
