We partner with horses to provide a space for our clients to meet their therapy and personal goals in an environment that many find more helpful than traditional talk therapy. The organization that I belong to is involved in peer reviewed research to study the continuing success of this model. We use a team approach, all unmounted, and most importantly, ethics are paramount, as well as confidentiality. It’s both a little complicated to explain at times and incredibly cool.
I am passionate about it as a provider, and I would love to tell you more about it in greater detail and answer all your questions!
All of the horses have been rescued and keep your secrets. Owner Operator, Paige Jobe has created her desire to save and rescue horses and give them a job that they have advantages and well paid in love and respect.

Seeing with old eyes, can be a new road or place to visit

Need a place to come tour and hear the stories personalizing our over 150 year old buildings in Knoxville, Crawford County Georgia: the Old Jail, Pottery Museum, The Georgia Post Building, and majestic and full of stories of Crawford County…”the Old Courthouse.”

Built in 1852, likely by Henry Crews, this vernacular courthouse is among the oldest in Georgia. It replaced an earlier structure on the same location which was destroyed by fire in 1829. After extensive renovations and remodels during the 19th and 20th centuries, it was no longer deemed practical and  a new courthouse was opened across the street in 2002. Now it is used as one of Crawford County Museums. One may visit the museum Monday through Friday by calling 478-836 3825. This is just one of the counties museums:
