Horses Healing Hearts - A fantastic article about a great lady doing all she can for these beautiful animals as well as for the people in her community. I can’t wait to visit with my Autistic daughter who is already a huge animal lover. Please donate to this worthy cause and get the word out to everyone. John L. / San Ramon

We live in the area and have watched these horses come in in need of a lot of attention and become healthy and robust in such a short time. We look forward to driving by as often as we can. Thank you for taking on this wonderful program.

Thank you everyone who came to meet Spirit,Buddy,Norm&Zorro. It was my pleasure to introduce Dyane Golding to Danville on Friday. The reception today went well and I appreciate wveryone who came out to 3H. I enjoyed meeting you all and look forward to promoting these beautiful creatures. I'm often speechless in their presence. Horses are healers. Thank you Dyane for Friday. I promise to keep everyone posted as we prepare for our first fundraiser. An exclusive screening of "Saving Americas Horses" with Willie Nelson at the Orinda Theatre, the date (TBD) to be determined. Please email to get on mailing list to receive newsletter. Giddy up!
