Equine facilitated learning (EFL) has proven to be a valuable, unique method of facilitating healing from combat trauma, post-traumatic stress injury, traumatic-brain injury & military sexual trauma. Our services provide casual daily care interactions with our horses, as well as focused equine therapy.
ABOUT OUR MISSION
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit for wounded warriors past and present. Through equine facilitated learning (EFL), the horses are used as a living tool to facilitate healing from combat trauma, post-traumatic stress injury,
traumatic-brain injury & military sexual trauma.
Our vision is that every veteran or active duty military member will have access to these services, to regain their emotional strength and confidence. Research shows that holding negative emotions for a long period of time can cause stress, increase anxiety, turn into depression, suppress the immune system, and impact sound judgment and intellectual capacity. Horses can help alleviate anxiety and build confidence for dealing with every day problems.
