Equine Therapy

Veterans get great theraputic help from interaction with animals. Horses and ponies at Stargazer Stables are gentle from years of working with children.

 

Veterans Health Administion already uses equine therapy. Joe Grimard, a recreational therapist at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital says, "It’s my job to get these guys back out into the community, doing healthy things."  These men need to replace negative experiences with positive interactions. Going to a farm and working with horses is a great way to start getting your life back on track.
