Founding Director, Candace Morasch a speech-language
pathologist, worked for public schools for 30 years. She worked with a
variety of communicative handicaps including stuttering, articulation
errors, language disorders, developmental delays and autism.
Saddletime Farm was a childhood fantasy long before it became an adult
reality. Pondosa Kenzie, my first Morgan purchased in 1960 and my mentor
Phil Morrison fostered a devotion to the Morgan horse now in its fourth
decade. Growing up in Grants Pass, a severe stutterer and faced with
difficulties at home and in school, horses became my sanctuary, an oasis
of tranquility in a tumultuous childhood. My 4-H leaders Francis Adams,
Phil Morrison and Amelia Jesinghaus provided positive role models and
practiced what they preached...work hard, do your best and serve the good
of the order.
Recognized for her skills with Morgan horses
and special-needs students, Candace Morasch created Once Upon A Horse™ to
enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities through working with
Morgan horses. She combines compassion, dedication, patience and
professional excellence with a sincere desire to share the magic of Morgan
horses with children, and especially, children with disabilities.
