Veterans Get Assistance from Horses through Equine Therapy Program
Posted by Drea Bergquist-Bowen on 02/25/2016
North Dakota’s Sitting Bull College has used horse therapists for the past five years to help veterans who have returned from war with physical, mental or emotional barriers. The college’s Equine Assisted Learning Program helps these men and women overcome those barriers.
"I truly believe they've (horses) learned how to protect themselves and keep themselves safe, and as a people we've kind of lost that, how to keep ourselves safe, emotionally, physically, mentally." "When we connect with these horses, we connect with our soul, because we have to change so much, whether we like it or not, to make that connection.” Here's a link to the HorseChannel's post: http://www.horsechannel.com/horse-news/2016/02/veterans-get-assistance-from-horses-through-equine-therapy-program-trending.aspx
