Would you recommend Stockhands Horses for Healing?

by Vicky Z. (October 31, 2018)
I volunteered for Stockhands for almost three years. They care deeply for their students and celebrate every improvement. The volunteers provide a vital service and are very much appreciated. I would recommend Stockhands to anyone looking to contribute to the life of a special needs child.
