HEALING THE HORSES


SOMETIMES THERAPY HORSES CAN USE A LITTLE THERAPY OF THEIR OWN


ot who heal BY DUTCH HENRY hers B


eing a horse advocate and writer, I’ve had the privilege of writ- ing over half a hundred stories about what I call “People and Horses Helping Horses and People.” I’ve met unbelievably self-sacrifi cing


people who mortgage their homes to keep the doors open so children dealing with autism, Down’s syndrome and other unkind conditions can learn to smile and even laugh while being carried to a happy place on the back a therapy horse. I’ve met veterans who’ve conquered the stranglehold of PTSD while holding the reins. I’ve met battered women who’ve learned to love and trust again simply sitting in a stall with a quiet horse. And I’ve met many understanding, caregiving therapy horses who give their own heart and soul for the greater good of humanity.


Kids love their horses. T e love that fl ows from the riders and horses is magical therapy of its own.
