This place saved my child's life, bringing a a sense of purpose rather than a feeling of despair.
Our daughter says she the main thing that helps her anxiety is knowing she can come to the ranch.
Love when my daughter stood up for herself, and her reason she said "I learned that at Higher Trails.
The difference in my child, her sense of self-confidence, that happened when she started coming here.
Emotionally, I became happier with myself, my confidence grew.
I am much more confident and less anxious when I am around a horse and I have not been able to replicate these feelings in any other aspect of my life.
I am less lonely, there is a place to go where you always find a friend, Higher Trails helped me work through my fears and anxieties.
The community of Higher Trails became a close knit group which I enjoyed and looked forward to.
There is always someone willing to listen, and not judge. It is a safe place.
My psychiatrist referred me to Higher Trails, and little did I know that an encounter with a horse would change my life.
Higher Trails is more than just a ranch, I can walk the pastures, go down to the creek, visit a horse and find a peace that I can't find anywhere else.
My job carries a lot of responsibility and is high stress. Coming to Higher Trails is how I can ground myself and be able to face another day.
The chance to come to Higher Trails and help with upkeep, repairing fencing, fixing a waterer, helping put out hay gives me a purpose now that I am retired.
People don't believe it, but I love to clean. So coming to Higher Trails to sweep, help with disinfecting, and what ever other things need to be done brings me a great sense of satisfaction.
Being asked to walk or groom a horse is an honor, and does a lot for my sense of well-being.
