Wesley Residents Take Part in ACTT Naturally at Long Shadows Farm

Recently, Wesley Community residents, who are also military veterans, were joined by Wesley staff members for a visit to Long Shadows Farm in Cambridge, NY. The farm is the home of the non-profit equine therapy program ACTT Naturally. The mission of ACTT Naturally is to transition Thoroughbreds from racing to new productive careers using the gentle techniques of natural horsemanship.

Through their programs, ACTT Naturally engages the horse human bond, facilitating mutual growth and positive transformation. ACTT Naturally President Valerie Buck and several volunteers hosted Wesley residents for the afternoon, explaining their programs and showing how to interact with the horses.

The residents enjoyed meeting the horses and touring the scenic farm. Thank you to ACTT Naturally for making a difference in the lives of our Wesley residents!
