Story Summary

Lead Instructor Krystal Evans is the heart of the Hope Equestrian Therapy Center in Perryville, Missouri. Practically born in spurs, Evans not only helps keeps the center up and running from a practical standpoint, but also embodies its spirit. Doing everything from cleaning stalls to defending grants, most of her days are spent in service to the center. Evans sees the potential in both people and animals, and strives to help them reach it. Whether at work or home, she is nurturing, encouraging, but never coddling.
