Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center has new home


WAUSAU (WAOW)--Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center has a new home. Thanks to private donations and two large contributions from the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin and the Greenheck Foundation, they recently purchased a horse ranch north of Wausau.

  Work is now underway to renovate the home, remodeling will begin later on updating other buildings on the property.

  The non-profit organization hopes to start another fundraising effort to build an indoor arena.

  Stable Hands is a therapy center which unites the disabled with horses. Experts say the therapy improves balance, coordination and movement. In addition to physical benefits there are said to be mental benefits too.

   The organization hopes to begin a program for military veterans called Horses for Heroes for those who have experienced injury or trauma.
