"Last year, when I found out I have endometriosis, and that it would derail all our plans of starting a family, I just completely shut down and dove head first into depression. I rode horses growing up, so I started taking lessons to distract myself -- a new goal to work towards, I guess -- but working with horses ended up being much more than a fun hobby. These animals have an incredible ability to sense and respond to all your emotions, and it's encouraged me to be aware of my feelings and center myself. It's immensely healing, and with WarHorses, I hope I can give back even an ounce of what Oak View Stables and their horses have given me."
