Progress Report #2 on therapy horses in training

We want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful support for this project.  Our programs would not be possible without the help and support of those who believe in what we do.  Helping these horses become safe, trusful companions and matching them with a therapeutic program or a loving forever home is our ultimate goal and your support is what makes it all possible!

All of the horses have completed this stage of their training and some have moved to the next level.  Bacardi has been adopted and Maizie is currently still in Punta Gorda with the wonderful volunteers who are there keeping our Cleveland Drive facility running smoothly.  The rest of the horses have been moved to our new facility in DeLeon Springs where we have a new training obstacle course.  These wonderful horses are really being challenged and they are all doing so well and making progress everyday!

We would like to invite everyone to come watch training sessions and meet the horses and volunteers in person... Saturdays are the best days to observe if you are ever in the area.
