Horses that Heal, My Volunteer Year
Use the link above to follow my year as a volunteer with equine therapy horses.

I knew very little about horses, but I'd had heard about wonderful programs where the horses help riders regain balance, the ability to walk better, even speak more clearly. So, I signed up to volunteer for a year at a facility in central Texas. I had to be able to identify the parts of the horse and then how to care for them. Below is a picture of cleaning a hoof.
