“The horses just make me a happier person, I have learned to be happier not only at the barn but also what I am at school and home. I just love horses and have since I started going out there. The horses have helped me communicate my feelings and Jennifer McVoy has also helped me learn how to do this also. She has explained things to me that help me understand how to communicate. I just love the horses to death they have made me a lot happier.”
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Danielle Hilleary, Hannah's horse riding instructor at Out Side In. During today's lesson, she guided Hannah through the beginning stages of speed trotting, and balance exercises. Danielle was able to get Hannah to execute a mounted 180 degree spin on the saddle on a standing horse- her beloved Johnny. For a little kid, on top of an animal, born with ancestral strength of the beasts that shaped history, to find the confidence inside to let go of fear and spin around on the saddle is a testament not only to Hannah's character, but to Danielle's passion for these creatures and her abiltiy to teach youngsters the proper way to handle a horse. More importantly, she facilitates the bond of trust horse and rider need in each other. Every week Hannah's confidence grows and her skills improve, and it is all owed to an amazing teacher."
"I can see the relevance of personal growth and healing through instruction, touching, loving, and knowing a four legged creature called, the horse. One can spiritually become so involved with a horse that you are continually in a dark place until Danielle says "tack up and let's get started with your lesson." What joy and excitment comes over this senior citizen when hearing these words. I give a quiet prayerful response of thank you ,God with tears in my eyes. My husband of 52 years passed away last year and I honor him by bringing life back into my existance. I can claim I am on my way to healing through the special touch of a horse. Thank you Danielle and Jen for so many things and especially your patience."
"I have been to traditional therapies, with multiple therapists and I just feel the connection I made with the horses and the approach Out Side In takes allows me to go to another level in dealing with moving forward and healing myself inside and becoming a stronger person."
