Healing Through Meaningful Connections

Mindfulness With Horses

Let the horses teach you the importance of being present and in the moment. Let go of your stress.

Challenge Your Fears

This is a one day program that helps the horses face their fears [and yours].

Rehabilitation Connection

Help the horses or dogs learn to trust human interactions again. Help them recover from abuse and neglect.

My story… While deployed to Pakistan, I was tasked to aid in an explosion that occurred at a school. When I arrived, there were children strewn everywhere, to this day I can still see the blood and hear the screaming children. While deployed to another location, I was taken advantage of and raped by a fellow service member. I have spent many years trying to suppress these memories and bury them, but after many years it caught up with me.

Once it finally caught up with me, I found myself in a very dark place. It was to the point where I had a short fuse and would snap at my family. I had exhausted all patience my spouse had, she pushed me to reach out for help.

 

After reaching out, I was assigned to a therapist, who I then lost confidence in after a short period of time. Doctors also prescribed medication to help, which it did a little. After a couple months, I found myself falling into a dark place again. Determined to better myself for my family, I found Patriot Pups & Ponies on the internet. The therapy I have received from the horses and dogs has allowed me to start on the journey to coping with the past.
