Veteran Quote After Visit to Smiling Goat:
“I felt calm and relaxed after the sensory work with the horses and was able to clear my thoughts and be 100% present and open to the experience. I think there’s an awesome opportunity here for vets to learn more about nature via horseback – since the healing power of nature has already been revealed to us. I felt clarity up on that horse, I also slept REALLY well that night when I returned home.”

“This Ranch is a place where I have seen my child’s courage, competence and communication skills blossom. Visits here give me the opportunity to see my child through the eyes of a team who believe in him and value him. And a bonus surprise for me – I have have been able to examine my own feelings as a special needs parent and feel healing, hope and optimism for myself!”
