“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 PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified equine riding instructors with military veterans suffering from psychological trauma and physical disabilities. HSHI strives to aid our military heroes in their journey of healing. Our program is structured to offer all veterans the opportunity to connect with horses regardless of their experience. Some veterans may find it calming to simply groom a horse, while others may enjoy the horse’s gentle gait or rehabilitate through other equine related activities, like moving hay bales.
It is this simple, non-judgmental interaction that helps alleviate wounds, both seen and unseen.
