LifeStriders, in Delafield, has been beneficial to me in my efforts to overcome anxiety and depression. This program is sponsored and is free for Veterans. Natalie Hays, an instructor there, was instrumental in getting me started. LifeStriders offers working with horses in a highly structured environment with a priority on safety. Their methods helped me lessen my fear of horses while gaining my interest in getting close to these interesting animals. There is a real sense of accomplishment in learning to ride horses, as well as ground work with the horses. I would recommend this program to anyone!
