Colorow Care Center Visit

We went to the Colorow Care Center in Olathe several weeks ago to help cheer up the seniors . We took wonderful Pumpkin and Sunny for the residents to see from their rooms - a few were able to come outside and touch the horses as well.

It was great to see the excitement from residents - horses are such healing animals and we were happy to bring smiles to their faces.

❤️😊🐴

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

KVNF Public Radio - Interview with Kathy Hamm

 

KVNF explores Equine-Assisted Therapy aka "Horse Therapy" at Dream Catcher Therapy Center in Olathe, CO. The therapy center houses over 50 rescued horses and works hand-in-hand with End of the Trail Rescue which rescues horses and cares for them until "the end of their lives." Equine therapy offers a different approach to trauma related therapy as well as physical and mental health treatment.

Therapy programs are offered to ages two and up. KVNF's Kori Stanton talks to Kathy Hamm, Founder of both Dream Catcher Therapy Center and End of the Trail Rescue about the importance of rescuing horses and their therapeutical abilities.

They also talk about animal cruelty and how the two organizations strive to protect animals from abuse. KVNF also speaks with head horse care-taker Steve Howarth, ranch volunteer Sandy, a DCTC therapist, Tamara Graham and Carol McBride one of the Board Members of End of the Trail Rescue.
