Ann Delisi talks with David Silver about his experience as a Detroit Public School teacher, what he learned about what his students were lacking and how interacting with horses could help them. He launched Detroit Horse Power as a way to bring horses into the lives of children whose situations prevent them from gaining the life skills they need and want. 

This year, Detroit Horse Power secured an 18-acre piece of land in Detroit from DPS, that will become the new permanent home of Detroit Horse Power. It will be a $5 million dollar facility that will provide unique and impactful experiences to change the lives of Detroit Public School kids.
