“Ask anyone who has spent time on a horse-the connection is intimate. And, undeniable. Horse. Human. Bond. The ability to heal follows. ” Chris Rubich, Equine Spirit, Magic City Magazine
Horses Spirits Healing Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit, partners certified equine therapists with military veterans suffering from psychological trauma and physical disabilities. Some veterans may find it calming to simply groom a horse, while others may enjoy the animal’s gentle gait or rehabilitate through physical activities like moving hay bales.
It is this simple, non-judgmental interaction that helps alleviate wounds, both seen and unseen.
