Farewell to wild horse
Wildhorse Therapeutic Riding Program in Missoula, MT is retiring after twenty successful years of giving love and acceptance through equestrian education. Wildhorse has received so much in return!
Kind Regards, Dr. Kari Ann Owen, Ph.D., Program Director and Head Instructor of Wildhorse.
More About The Program’s Retirement
Special Thanks, Credits & Other Acknowledgments to the Following:
Seedlings of Change and The Brondum Foundation, both in Missoula, MT, for their financial support.
The incredible parents of our many young students for their love and dedication.
The courage of all our students of all ages. Some have been mobility impaired. Some have been hearing and vision-impaired. One had a phobia about horses that Wildhorse was able to help cure (the rider found herself riding independently after three lessons).
