--Wildstar Wranglers provides an opportunity for young adults with special challenges to develop a strong work ethic and learn appropriate job-related skills in a supportive, supervised environment. Tasks include daily horse care and barn chores.
--Equine-assisted therapy visits are offered to schools, afterschool programs and social service organizations in the local area by our founder and her registered therapy pony Hugo.
