Fancy Feathers  in Sidney, Iowa is a business that specializes in therapy with horses. We assist clients and animal lovers who want to schedule visitations, therapy sessions, or just a family outing. We welcome everyone who wants to discover, learn, and be enchanted with these magnificent horses.

Our goal is to schedule visitation times for people who are being treated for learning disabilities, physical and social challenges.  We work with individuals, counselors and their patients, group visitations, special needs.

Our program was started by a disabled veteran who benefited from the therapy and companionship of the horses. Her interaction with the horses was therapeutic and helped her learn how to cope, control and decompress from her post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Because of this, she wants to share her fascination with horses with others in the hope of paying it forward.
