Kristin Jaeger, a licensed arts, equine and substance abuse therapist, and mental health counselor works at Bit of Hope Ranch, an organization that provides a healing environment for both animals and humans. Brain-mapping medical technology has allowed Bit of Hope Ranch to keep track of the progress of those who come to the ranch for equine-therapy. Student reporters from Forestview High School documented their program.
