Being able to serve the military, by helping them with problems created by serving our country is an
honor. As taught by Greg Kersten, ( OK Corral Series ) a veteran of the United States Army,
horses have had a tremendous history in the Americas and world wide. Our language shows the
priceless heritage of the horse attributes in the expressions used such as " horse power","healthy
as a horse," "work horse" and "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink,"
giving strength and independence to these wonderful creatures.
The process used in the exercises and activities help the veteran to see that they are ok by looking
at their strengths through the loving unconditional heart of the horse. This can be a reinforcement
to the participant that they are not their past or the trauma.
In working with the military and their families, natural responses may include a range of fatigue, fear,
depression, substance abuse, anxiety, panic, uncertainty and more. Using horses help clients to
step back and see things more clearly or in a different way then before. Starting the healing process.
The horse is an animal of prey. The horse knows all about survival.
