GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD TV8)-We’ve heard that animals have the power to heal. That is exactly what the horses have the ability to do at The Barn for Equine Learning. Horses are paired with licensed social workers to create healing for children and adults who have mental health issues or have experienced trauma. Horse therapy is just one of the many programs that the barn offers.

Nestled back on 40 acres in Lowell, it’s a peaceful place where people come to connect, learn and grow. to see more about their programs visit The Barn for Equine Therapy website.
