Have had several Successful PTSD and

Mental Health Classes at the facility.

Cindy is a Certified Peer Support Specialists

eligible to work in

Addiction and Mental Health Recovery.

Next classes will be from noon till 2pm

on the 20th (developmentally disabled) and 

the 27th (PTSD).

The goal is to make these programs a worthy part of our operations this year. Working with Linn County Mental Health, we have set up different classes for individuals to come to the facility and benefit from the loving touch of the horses. Did you know horses can also have PTSD from stressful (abusive) situations.
Trust, A critical foundation upon which every stable and sustainable relationship is built. Some of our horses have little or no trust left for humans, as do some of our “friends” who come to our PTSD program. When they come some are not quite sure why or what will happen, but it does. When they are together, horse and human, they build a relationship together laying the foundation for their future relationships with each and every stroke of the brush, grooming each other’s trust. Calmness – one stroke at a time.

Its interesting to know science is now proving what horse people have always known.

Psychologists at Sussex University,explored the equine capacity to read the human face and emotions.

They can not only tell whether a human is angry, or happy,  they react to those emotions.

NEVER GO TO THE BARN ANGRY!

The connection between animal welfare and faith communities has very deep roots, said animal welfare

advocate Sister Lucille Thibodeau, PM, PhD. She said some figures traditionally viewed in a

nonreligious light, such as ancient philosopher Pythagoras, were the first Western world thinkers

to suggest that humans had a duty to be kind to animals. Later, the Hebrew Bible urged kindness toward

animals and Christians such as St. Francis of Assisi, now almost universally recognized as the

Patron Saint of Animals, carried that concept even further.

A surprising number of medieval monks and nuns protected animals from hunters,

releasing them from traps and snares and placing their own bodies between hunters and their prey,

” Thibodeau said. While the measures might seem extreme, they’re not so different

from modern groups who use litigation, legislation, and other tools to advocate

for the preservation of America’s wild horse and burro herds, increased federal equine

welfare protection for gaited performance horses, or prevent U.S.

horse processing plant development.

Today, animal welfare advocates are exploring ways to engage

faith communities in animal welfare advocacy issues, as well.
