"Horses Treat" Program offers equine assisted therapy

MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

A new treatment program in Marathon County is using horses to help people who have problems.

It involves interacting with horses, much like a patient interacts with a doctor.

Jenna Saul and her husband started "Horses Treat" in 2012.

The program offers mental health services through physical interaction with horses.

"They are prey animals and we are predators, they are very aware of us, they read us, they mirror us," said Jenna Saul, Program Founder.
