The tree-lined white fence and big, airy yellow barn of Angel Smile Farm in Loxahatchee are as serene and welcoming as the horses that gather to greet you as you drive onto the property. The farm is peaceful by design, as it is often a second home to those who need peace the most.
Owner Maurette Hanson runs a nonprofit equine therapy program called Healing Horse Therapy Center from Angel Smile Farm. She offers a variety free programs to people with mental and physical issues. One of her specialties is providing equine-assisted therapy to combat veterans who return home with post-traumatic stress disorder and often have a hard time adjusting to life off the battlefield.
