You won't meet a more dedicated individual than Amber Buswell with Shorty's Safe Haven. When it comes to God, Grit, & Grace, she's got all three covered. Amber started Shorty's Safe Haven a few years ago and specializes in Equine Therapy for foster children and at-risk youth. 

"There's something about watching two living beings who have really been through something that has changed them both, healing each other, it's a beautiful thing. God has given us these magical beings that truly work wonders for these kids and families. We want to reach more people in our community," says Buswell.
