Real Happiness Starts In A Stable

Today we’d like to share the story behind our Real Happiness Mobile Horse Therapy Unit.

The unit was born through a conversation with a group 4H teen girls on the way home from a visit with Dr. Pol. Listening to the radio, a story came on about a water company selling Real Water by the gallon for $25.00 and that they couldn't keep up with the demand from customers. The girls thought if people buy real water, EAD could "sell" Real Happiness and agreed that real happiness does start in a stable.

When the COVID pandemic hit, we opened our barn to groups of Alzheimer's and dementia residents in two senior living centers. These individuals would spend an hour with the horses. The impact was so profound, so necessary, and so real, that when the lock down happened it simply was not an option to stop bringing the joy and connection of the horses to folks isolated from loved ones.
