Trauma, PTSD, & Horses
Service related injuries generally fall into three different categories; physical, emotional and spiritual. Most veterans don’t want to talk about their traumatic service experiences. That’s perfect, because most of our work is non-verbal, and relationship based. It’s a journey of creating a connection, relationship and trust. Once that’s mastered between the veteran and their horse, it spills over to other important relationships in their life. Week after week the relationship grows and deepens, giving the veteran new skills and confidence that things can and will get better.
Therapy with horses is widely known for helping veterans and their entire family work through the challenges of military service like; PTSD, depression, addictions, guilt, grief, anger, panic attacks, sleep disorders, spiritual injuries and more.
