Established in 2012, A Stable Life provides a variety of non-riding equine treatment programs focused on prevention, education, healing and assisted recovery guided by qualified professionals. Sessions benefit individuals and families dealing with life challenges that may include anxiety, isolation, addiction, loss of a loved one, phobias or for those suffering from the symptoms of PTSD. A Stable Life will design a program for any person in need of intervention and healing.
