Veterans

CONNECT, COMMUNICATE, LET GO

Veterans

Back to grazing

Horses are quick to react to perceived danger but where no threat exists, go ‘back to grazing’. We use the same principle focus on helping people to develop a less reactive approach to situations and how to connect with others to create and maintain better relationship.

It’s about life skills, coping mechanisms, decision making and creating a brighter future. Participants tell us that they feel much more hopeful and positive following their time with the horses.

We also offer a free 6-week online follow up on-line course for veterans to help with establishing new, constructive practices.

Equine therapy for veterans

Working with such powerful yet gentle animals can be both emotional and intimidating. Unable to draw upon physical strength, clients have to develop their inner resources and engage through co-operation and partnerships with the horses.
