What’s New at Stable Hands


Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center Snowshoe Hike and Wine Flight


Welcome new  Instructor Nicole!

Congratulations to Nicole Yunk on achieving her Registered Instructor Status! Becoming an instructor with PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) is a difficult and challenging process.

However, being able to work with our students who have special needs is rewarding beyond measure. A lot of varied skills are needed to be an instructor, including extensive horse knowledge and riding skills, varied information on riders with special needs and how to best meet the goals for their benefit.

We are happy to have her as a member of our staff!

Stable Hands’ program for Veterans is called V.A.S.T. (Veterans Assisted Sports Training). Therapeutic horses are partnered with Veterans for them to gain self-understanding and emotional growth. V.A.S.T. recognizes the bond between animals and humans, and sees the potential for emotional healing that can occur when a relationship is formed and nurtured.

The Stable Hands HarryV.A.S.T. Program offers horse-based activities to enhance the recovery from physical, emotional, social and cognitive struggles that veterans may face in civilian life. We offer different levels of instruction to guide Veterans through the program.  For more information, contact Diane Abitz, Executive Director, at 715-359-6046 or dabitz@stablehandstherapy.com  To see a copy of our  brochure, click here: V.A.S.T. info
