Seniors Get Horse Therapy at Northwind Stables

Seniors from Westminster Canterbury made a visit to Northwind Stables in Boonsboro to make some new equine friends.

The Jacob's Run Equestrian Team invited them to get up close and personal with many of the horses their team uses to ride. Team Members taught the seniors about caring for the horses, and their personalities.

Owner Brittany Jacobs believes visiting the horses is a therapeutic experience, saying "Horses have an aura about them, that make them a very good therapy animal. Just being able to touch them, and run a brush down them is very relaxing, and just puts a smile on their face.

Jacobs' team also treated their guests to an equestrian show, put on by her beginner's riding class.
