Meet The Staff
Our herd began in 1998 with Miss Bath Honey, a Thoroughbred mare and her son Petie. The herd quickly grew as Judy wanted to develop a Trakehner breeding farm in Northern Colorado. In 1999 I started using the horses in my Psychology Practice and discovered the "healing power of the Horse" and began to use them as therapy animals. In 2003 we moved to Greeley from Fort Collins, Colorado and began using them with my clients from probation and parole. In 2007 the decision was made to reduce the herd, which had grown to 32 down to 18 due to the downturn in the economy. We picked the horses that would do the best as therapy animals, of which most all of them (12) were foals we raised ourselves. This is when we first started providing services for the Treatment Courts of Weld County. Our staff have seen thousands of humans and in 2014 they met 989 in the pasture near Greeley. In 2015, 3,725 visited the herd and we are on the glide path to see over 5,000+ in 2016.
In 2014, Richard & Judy McMahan donated the herd of 15 therapy horses to Human Interpersonal Services with the goal of continued service in the way of "Healing the Hearts of Humans" in Northern Colorado. We have gained 3 more Trakehner's by kind donations.
