Wild Hearts Horses for Heroes
Wild Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Program
Wild Hearts Horses for Heroes:
Healing through Horsemanship
Our 10-week program addresses wounds of war including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), as well as other psychological challenges that make it difficult to return to duty or readjust to civilian life following deployment.
Participants gain horsemanship skills, forge an indescribable bond with our horses, and simultaneously address life and coping skills. Our un-mounted Healing through Horsemanship program touches lives in ways never thought possible.
Wild Hearts also offers one-on-one EFP sessions with our therapist. EFP an experiential form of therapy that allows the client to engage in activities with a horse that illustrate the dynamics that the client experiences in everyday living. This experience provides opportunities for the client to learn about themselves and new ways to cope with their everyday life.
"Horses can perceive your feelings, they can perceive some of your attitudes. They can certainly perceive your moods..."
