The Hoofbeat | September 2019

Mark Z. was born in Buffalo, New York. He moved to Santa Barbara to attend the Pacifica Graduate Institute after completing four years of service in the United States Marine Corps, including two tours of duty in Iraq. While interning at Hospice of Santa Barbara, he learned about Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center. Mark was grappling with chronic back pain related to an injury he sustained while in the service. He was hesitant to engage in physical activities for fear of exacerbating his injury, and this was affecting his overall quality of life.
