DCS Alum Designs College Equine Therapy Center

Mary (Zimmerman) Dennis, class of 2009, has designed Equine Alley, a facility dedicated to using animals in therapy for handicapped children.   Mary attended Cedarville University following her graduation from DCS, and was involved in the innovative and industrial design program at the college.  She designed the structure as her capstone project for the program. 

       

The Equine Center will provide therapeutic opportunities for children with physical and mental disabilities by providing a controlled environment in which to connect with horses, thus addressing fears, and developing physical strength.
