RadioRotary often discovers remarkable people living in the mid-Hudson region who are not well known to the general population. Cari Swanson of Wind Rock Farm in Amenia is an example. When asked if she is a horse whisperer, she replies that she is a horse listener. Whatever you call it, she is able to train horses to act in movies and on television as well as teaching rescued horses how to live with and work for humans. Among her horse's credits are the white angel horse from the movie Winter's Tale and the various horses that make a setting in the year 1900 authentic on Cinemax's series The Knick. Ms. Swanson's horse rescue operation is the focus of the interview. The seven abused horses that she trains at any given time at the nonprofit Red Horse Rescue will eventually move to their permanent homes when they have been restored to physical and mental health. There are many ways that horses have helped humans over the past 6,000 years. Among them, Ms. Swanson and her horses provide equine-assisted psychotherapy to veterans and autistic children.
