It was an eye-opening experience to watch our children’s confidence grow during the 6 weeks interaction therapy with your horses. Our little girl who on the first day would not even get close to the animals and needed 5 sessions to let go of your hand, helped cleaning their hoofs at the end. Our boy lost his shyness and is less introvert after working with them. He also found a friend. After the last session he went and said to his favourite horse: “Good bye my friend, I love you!”

I admire your patience and your certitude of the magic of the horses’ reaction to the hidden pain and suppressed feelings of human beings. The effect these gentle creatures had on our children is amazing.

Please, accept our deepest gratitude for this wonderful experience which our children were able to have.
