Twin Stars Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc.

THE STORY:

Trauma rarely happens in isolation. In combat, trauma occurs in the context of a cohesive, disciplined, closely-knit unit. Disruption of unit cohesion often results in impaired interpersonal relationships and, if untreated, increases the risk of substance abuse, domestic violence and suicide. Therapeutic riding and Equine-Facilitated Learning (EFL) sessions with a Wounded Warrior/First Responder demonstrates the importance of being able to verbally process the client's experience so that it can be integrated. It also shows how the horse’s capacity to reflect underlying intention and emotion is critical to the healing process.

Therapeutic riding and EFL are used for those who are or who have experienced: trauma, anxiety, anger and acting out, personal issues, focus problems, grief and loss, poor self-esteem, substance abuse recovery, communication/interpersonal relationship difficulties, and stress as a result of a traumatic event.

Your donations will further our mission by funding therapy for 20 Wounded Warriors, First Responders, and veterans for an entire year.

Please help us strive to repay these brave warriors by helping them heal from and cope with the effects of war, injury, and disease through the gifts of the horse. Thank you.
