A Word with Mr. Charles
The Beginning of My Mission
I asked the Lord to make me comfortable around them so that I could volunteer to help them. He may have overdone it because he instead, taught me to love them.
Years later after volunteering at a typical therapeutic riding center for five years, I founded SpiritHorse because I thought that more could be offered than the "recreation product" offered by the centers worldwide. I founded a center that developed a product based upon scientific evidence that I called "Equine Assisted Healthcare", which has been so much more effective in dealing with the needs of those with disabilities."

They also approved the Terrace Oaks development change from SF2 to SF4 on the condition that the areas aligning with the SpiritHorse property have an 8 foot board-on-board fence.
