Thank you for your generous support of the H.O.P.E. Ranch Foundation.
Your response has brought HOPE to many individuals and families in SE MN through animal-assisted psychotherapy.
With your help, we are bringing lifesaving and life-changing therapy to those in need.
Martha Walters, a former client of H.O.P.E. Ranch, agreed to share her experience and observations of how working with the horses helped her.
“I remember our first session you took me out to meet the horses. We weren’t even inside the fence yet, and I threw my hands up in the air and the horse reacted. I didn’t even notice it, and you said, “Did you see that?” And we talked about it. I learned to be more aware of what I was feeling and doing, through the horses and you. I remember trying to lead the horse, Scooter. But HE led ME. He helped me become aware of my body language, attitude, and demeanor. When I learned to change those things, then Scooter allowed Me to lead Him.”
Martha Walters and Kit Muellner, founder of H.O.P.E. Ranch, wish to express their heartfelt gratitude for your support of the HOPE Ranch Foundation.
Your donation dollars will allow us to continue the Foundation’s work of supporting EAGALA model animal-assisted psychotherapy in SE Minnesota. EAGALA or Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association is a mental health treatment model that incorporates horses as partners in the therapeutic process. It offers a unique and experiential approach, where horses play a vital role in helping clients explore
emotions, build self-awareness, and achieve positive outcomes.
