About S.F.E.A.T

At an early age, Stable Foundations Equine Assisted Therapy owner, Patricia Crockford, developed a strong passion for horses.  It was this passion that led her to study Equine Studies at Kemptville College.  But it wasn't until later in life when her own child began to struggle with anxiety that Patricia was able to see, first hand, the great benefits that can come from combining her love of horses with her dedication to helping others.  Now certified in both Equine Assisted Leaning (EAL) and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) through the OK Corral Series.  Patricia is ready to bring this same level of dedication and passion to helping your loved one achieve his or her goals!
