Deanna Mancuso tells the story of how her troubled grandfather’s gift of a horse with a bad personality led her create the Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue farm, which now hosts 50 formerly abused horses at a permanent farm and animal sanctuary in Dover Plains. Today these horses are providing significant equine-assisted therapy to humans in need of help—it is “people helping horses heal people”. In addition to allowing anyone to visit the horses from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m, after 3 there are clients who receive equine-assisted psychotherapy. Also the form, originally primarily an animal sanctuary, now has many events that reach out to the community, such as “Faces of PTSD,” which features photographs of veterans with horses, and an Easter candy program for children as well as pony rides at the form and elsewhere. Also on the program is Lisa Odendahl, who is working on the “Faces of PSTD” event.
