Horses are are magnificent animals! It's painful knowing what's happening to them these days...In my city there's 3 Equine Therapy sanctuaries...mostly benefiting troubled youth+victims of abuse. I hear only great things! Thx Judy.

Thanks, everybody. Horses really are great therapy animals. I have a friend who is an Occupational therapist, and she uses her horses in therapy with autistic and other disabled children, and some adults. The effect is amazing.
