Staff at equine therapy

 

UMCH staff spent a sunny afternoon earlier this week learning more about equine therapy from Chase Meadow Lane Farm CEO, Dede Chase.

It was a fun, educational afternoon for all involved. Thanks to Dede Chase and UMCH staff trainer Sarah Ziegler for lending us their beautiful horses for the day.
