To partner our horses with individuals with special needs to enrich their lives and allow them to reach their fullest potential.
It is the vision of Front Runners Rehab and Rescue that no person and no horse gets turned away. Amber Glen Wellness Center sets its sights to taking in horses with no hope, rehabilitating and retraining them, and giving them new purpose in our therapeutic riding programs for children and adults to build confidence and to develop to their greatest potential.
Patti Gail is a woman who can't say no to a person or a horse in need. The Owner and President of Amber Glen Wellness Center, in 2004, after her own horse was badly burned in a barn fire and there were no affordable facilities she could turn to for help, she discovered her mission. She began offering her services to local facilities, and has been working on a cure for Creeping Indigo toxicity.
Patti is currently working toward her PATH Int'l certification, so that she can further open the doors of Amber Glen to offer equine-assisted therapy to individuals in need. It is her goal that no person or horse gets turned away.
The barn manager at Amber Glen Wellness Center, Abbey has spent her life riding! Abbey is a riding instructor at the facility and also volunteers for the therapy program.
Abbey continues to aspire to help others develop their passion for horses and brings her experience and dedication to the Front Runner's team.
