Thank you!

After 3 days of Rural Philanthropy Days conference in Montrose I have defined my specific calling. Pairing elderly humans with elderly horses. A match made in heaven. Older people and older horses want to be needed, useful and vibrant. And here at Horse and Human Rescue we are doing just that. PM me on Facebook and make appointments now for your loved one.”  Alice B.
