For the last three years, Trinity Circle Horses Healing Hearts - located north of Neosho - has held its annual open house.
On Saturday, Sept. 2, a sizable crowd attended the free event.
"We usually have about 300 to 400 people that will come through, we serve a free lunch and have a raffle and prizes," said Dawn Newlan, founder, trainer of Trinity Circle Horses Healing Hearts and also Equine Specialist in Mental Health & Learning. "We do a lot of pony rides and some horse education for people who want to learn."
According to Newlan, "we do horse therapy or equine therapy. our primary focus is PTSD or emotional trauma, working with troubled teens and our military. we help them learn how to deal with their issues and hopefully be better functioning in society."
Newlan said the center is getting busier and busier.
"We are getting busier pretty much every day. we have new clients calling," she said. "We have had a tremendous response, as the awareness of the ranch is growing, so are our clientele."
Newlan was pleased with the turnout and the community coming out.
"It is great every year," she said. "We are thrilled, a lot of times this is the only time that some of the people ever get exposed to horses and actually see what they are all about."
