What Our Participants Are Saying

Cancer Survivor and Founder, Lia Ray

A Few Excerpts…

The experience was uplifting! I watched as my three grandchildren rode the horses and how they changed as they rode! Lia even put me on her horse Marco. I had not ridden in years. I was transformed.

"Paula M."

After a few hours in the outdoors I felt like a new woman! I left the ranch with a feeling of inner peace, newfound hope for my future, and went on to enjoy the best night of sleep I have had since being diagnosed.

Michelle M.

Horses (and Lia) have so much support to offer and what a profound opportunity to experience this therapy during an often all consuming cancer journey.

Amanda N.
"Amanda N."

The time at RSET allowed me to continue to let go of preconceived ideas of what I can or cannot do. I welcome every possibility.
