  • My experience with Dr. Gaedt and Coach Aaron was excellent. The horses knew how I was feeling sometimes before I did. They would nuzzle me and interact so that I could get the answers I needed. Unbelievable work they are doing at Miracle Ranch. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is inclined to use the healing power of horses to change their lives.
