Stuart Bond is a master woodcarver and artist in Bozeman who teaches woodcarving to those who wish to use this art form to express what they’re feeling. Stuart’s gentle manner and vast skills as a woodcarver help him be a perfect fit for this wing of the Heart and Hand Center. Stuart’s custom wood carvings have been featured all over the world. In addition to his woodcarving, Stuart helps work with the horses during our equine therapy sessions.
Joker and Hotshot are two of our equine therapy teammates. These two horses are loving and magnificent animals that help be mirrors for human emotion in our equine sessions and we sure love them.
Hotshot is a quarter horse and a bit more mild mannered than the spirited Thoroughbred Joker. Both boys love people and work hard to help our team provide great therapy.
Sunbear is our therapy dog and jovial Golden Retriever, with a warm, sunny heart and a playful, bearish nature. Sunbear is very calm, sweet and happy, and is also certified as a service dog. We’d be lost without dear Sunbear and love his spirit.
