Horses as Healers Take a few minutes to read this article written by our resident equine-assisted mental health counselor, Lorna Shepardson, and learn how horses have a unique capacity to heal. Lorna beautifully illustrates the ways in which horses reach us at our darkest core, only to draw us into the light. A wonderful, inspiring read!
