Organization History

In 1996, Bill and Kathy's daughter, Ali, was born with Down syndrome. They realized that with some help, their beautiful child could develop to her full potential. A lifelong horsewoman, Kathy began to explore the idea of a Hippotherapy program and traveled to different centers around Colorado to learn all she could. Believing that Hippotherapy would benefit others besides Ali, the Hamm's bought 36 acres west of Olathe, Colorado. Dream Catcher Therapy Center was founded there in 1999, starting with two personal horses and an arena. Seeing all that these animals could offer to people who are hurting, the Hamm's decided to give back to the horses by opening End of the Trail Horse Rescue in 2006. Since then they have been working to combat the growing numbers of unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused horses on the Western Slope of Colorado. Today they are expanding the therapy programs they offer in order to reach more people living with disabilities and save more horses that others have deemed as useless.


"I have been to so many therapists over the years. Nothing
ever worked. The horses have a way to put it right into your
face - it's intense, but it works for me. Sometimes I don't
like what I see, because I can't put it on anybody else and it
seems to be too much. But this form of therapy - I can
come up with my own answers. When I leave, I always feel
better, and have changed so much in such little time -
everybody has noticed that."
