SpiritHorse Therapeutic Center, where disabled children often speak their first words and take their first steps, is the subject of Olive Tree Pictures latest work.
The company will be filming part of a one-hour documentary on July 17-19 with founder Charles Fletcher in Corinth, Texas.
“In 2001, Charles I. Fletcher at the retired age of 63, combined his passion for horses and his love for children to start SpiritHorse Therapeutic Riding Center,” explains the website http://www.spirithorsetherapy.com. “I am the world’s richest man because I get paid in hugs and smiles, the most valuable currency that exists. I love my children and I love my job,” said Fletcher. The center teaches physically and mentally challenged children how to ride a horse. For the first time in their lives, the children gain new abilities and confidence.
“This promises to be one of the most moving and touching documentaries we have ever done,” according to producer/director and Olive Tree President Pat Denson. “I can’t wait to put this package together and to share it on our website. It is an emotional story about what one person can do with a dream and a vision. Mr. Fletcher certainly embodies our mission to ‘see lives transformed.’”
