At a place like Eagle Mount in Bozeman, MT, connections are everything. People with disabilities can escape for therapeutic recreational activities like horseback riding, skiing, swimming, horticulture, iceskating, etc…
Dana Eklund and Katie Jacobson work in the equestrian division at Eagle Mount, teaching the ins and outs of horsemanship. Learning these skills and creating a bond with an animal is an opportunity for tremendous growth and happiness. Dana and Katie have been around horses their entire lives, but the chance to step back and guide someone as they form their own connection takes it to a whole new level.
There is so much to gain from the company of their students and the horses they train with. As Katie says, “Each person is an individual, and that’s awesome. We all are at different points in our lives, but our journeys are equally as important, and we can all stand to learn a thing or two from each other.”
