The world says it can't be done, that there's not enough people care. Let's prove them wrong and help people with Depression, PTSD..., including Vets/Domestic Violence through Therapy with Miniature Horses. Are you ready to help prove the world wrong?

Help Them Free Victims of PTSD, Depression and other aliments where learning to "let go" can set the person free. The best part is the horses do this by natural instinct, so we just let them guide the way.

Nobody wants PTSD. It is a result of a traumatic event or series of events in their life.  Two of the main examples that touch me are Veterans and Domestic Violence victims. Both of them did not ask for what they went through and most went through it repeatedly, making the wounds of PTSD even deeper.

They need understanding and help. Counselors are needed, but so is learning to trust again, learning how to open the person inside of them that is lost in the PTSD. In addition to counseling animals can do that! You read stories all the time of how someone that was helped by an animal.

The journey will be long for all of these victims, but they can get better one step at a time. Many of them are withdrawn and so it is easier for them to let the animals show them the way.

This spring our miniature horses will work with people who have these conditions to begin their journey of finding their way back out of the darkness they feel with PTSD, Depression...

It is expensive to provide them with everything they need to learn all the things they have to do, plus traveling to various places that allow them to learn to not fear all the different environments. Other expenses include vet bills, farriers, special shoes (so they do not scuff floors), vest and their therapy badges, so people can see they are therapy animals wherever they go… In addition, we need to upgrade their transportation so we can transport them safely, for those that can't come to us. Though they need many things, $1,750 will get everything they need to make and cover all the additional expenses through spring and into summer. 

I know I’m called to do this, I’ve known for a long time and I believe enough other people want these people helped, that they’ll help get these miniature horses where they need to be to help these PTSD victims.
