A Soldiers Story
We finally got him on the horse but then he was over squeezing his legs and pulling on the reigns because he thought that he was going to fall off. We showed him how to breathe and relax and, once he did, the horse started immediately responding to him more favorably. We showed him how to guide the horse more with his feet than with his hands and once he was comfortable, we took him out on a trail ride.

For the Love of a Horse
Veterans who work with horses can take advantage of this special bond to gain insight into themselves – their feelings, emotions, and reactions.
It’s almost like a feedback loop: when you respond to the horse, it mirrors that back to you.
