"I was paying an exorbitant amount of money for physical therapy and seeing no improvement and was experiencing poor self esteem. Since Open Trail Ranch, I look forward each week to visiting my horse and working to improve my body motions for the next week. I love it and would recommend Open Trail Ranch to anybody who is considering a change in therapy or to experience peace. I feel real again. Thank you."
