I was honored to be a part of such a moving evening. I feel blessed to be a part of such an magical place with such amazing people and even more wonderful animals. I wish somehow I could make it full time because like the speakers said, to them, it's their own little slice of heaven. It has certainly been that for me as well.

I’ve been in this boat alone-not knowing anyone else who has gone down the same path. It was comforting to hear your stories of similarity and I hope over time we can help each other with ideas, resources or simply support. It will be powerful coming from any of you knowing that we all truly understand the challenges in our lives. Thank you for organizing a wonderful weekend and for inviting me.
In two days, this program did for me what 4+ years of conventional therapy and reading books on my own could not accomplish. My life will be greatly impacted by this retreat in the most positive way imaginable.
I enjoy the trips to the horse farm because it allows me to spend time with the horses. It helps me to relax and have a good time riding the horses. I feel that the opportunity to enjoy the environment and it helps me mentally to focus on the morning ride. I want to thank you for this opportunity to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. I feel that it is good for my spirit and soul. This chance to have time with the horses has allowed me to enjoy my ride and my friendship with the people and animals. Thank you for sponsoring this time to go to the horse farm. I would like to tell you that this experience has allowed my to not worry about my mental disposition. I would like to continue to participate in the horse farm experience. I am a vet that feels that this program to enjoy nature and have a personal relation with the people and animals. You have helped me to look at the world around me and not always on my illness. I thank for the chance to sponsor us to enjoy the horse back riding. Thank you.
What a wonderful experience. Liz and Clare knocked themselves out to care for my dear wife. Despite she is losing her eyesight, they were so compassionate with her. You can be very proud with what you offer the public.

The activities with the horses were so powerful, I saw so much of the dynamic between my husband and I play out. I was able to be open with others trying to deal with similar issues. My frustration and lack of knowledge were exhausting my ability to care for my whole family.
