FRANKFORT- Spirit Dogs Farm in Frankfort invites veterans in for some therapy with horses.

The farm partnered with Sitrin to start a rehabilitation program, involving horses, to help vets when they come back from overseas.

Experts at the farm said, they believe horses help vets see things in a different way. "So working with a dog has its rewards and benefits, and working with a prey animal like a horse that's hyper vigilant has a different aspect to it, that helps them come to terms with some thing," said Jeff Engelbrecht, owner of the farm.
