Who’s Rescuing Who?
We’re heading into an incredibly exciting year in 2019! We’re finally starting our horse and pony rescue program that will enable at-risk children to help to rehabilitate our rescue herd. Horses and ponies are highly resilient. Their stoicism in the face of trauma and their growing willingness to trust again and accept help make them incredibly powerful teachers.
Throughout the rehabilitation process, the children are able to see the horses grow in confidence and strength, find friends and assume their rightful place in the herd (community).
The children learn that what has happened in the past does not have to define what happens in the future.
Being part of the process that allows the horses to regain their health, dignity, courage and love of life is enormously empowering for the children. The lessons that the children learn from being part of this process are many and their results immeasurable
