Parent: "This was a fantastic program. I liked very much that my son got an opportunity to do real work and get a lot of time working very closely with the horses. The Student Service Learning hours were an added benefit. The price was a real value. I would definitely recommend this program to others."

Parent:"The staff were absolutely phenomenal! Staff were super patient with my child, adjusted expectations to meet his needs, and helped build his self-confidence with praise and encouragement."

Parent:"I had envisioned my child becoming involved with an activity larger than herself. The results were amazing. I think the horses have found a new best friend."

Parent:"We were very satisfied with our Legacy week with DEFHR. Telling lots of friends about it. We'll be back next year for sure!!"
