Last week I visited Horses for Hope, which is an equine facilitated learning and therapy program to assist people with a range of issues.
The program’s clients may be victims of abuse or trauma, have experienced an accident or natural disaster or be suffering from a developmental or mental health issue.
Horses for Hope operates out of Shepparton and Kinglake in Victoria. The program connects troubled people and troubled horses, and is truly remarkable in this respect. Delivered by Kildonan Uniting Care, the program has gained a reputation for being able to assist individuals and groups that have tried a range of other therapeutic options.
