    Thank you for this wonderful film, they are very touching and wonderful. I have seen films about horses being used to heal children before
    but this is the first time I see it used for war veterans. Does that mean – I wonder – that it could be used also for traumatised victims from
    abuse or terror events?
    The possibility seems to be there.


    1. Oh, definitely! Our foster daughter suffered tons of trauma and abuse before coming to us. We take her for therapeutic riding and it’s amazing to see how her whole demeanor changes when she’s with the horses (and the wonderful staff of volunteer humans!).
