Harp Therapy For Frightened Horses
 By Winniefield Park   •   28th Jan 2020   •   334 views   •   0 comments


Amid the frightening chaos and rush taking place as the Australian wildfires are being fought is a calming sound that helps both horses and humans.

And, her observations have paid off, as her own horses, and several others seem to respond to the gentle sounds.
