What began as a facility for Rocky Mountain College equine students has morphed into a form of therapy to help veterans,
“ I’ve been raised around horses all my life, so I realized the value of horses in therapy,” Barbara Skelton, treasurer and co-founder of Horses Spirits Healing.
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Steve Daines stopped by to celebrate securing a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans.
“We’ve been working hard, and making requests for getting grants from the VA. And we were successful in getting a nice grant just this week,” the Montana Republican said.
The $75,000 grant will go toward mental health counseling, and assistance for those with physical disabilities or other war related injuries through equine therapy.
