Our Mission: Humans Helping Horses, Helping Humans.
What do wild horses and war veterans have in common? They are both symbols of strength and freedom rounded up and recruited to serve the people of this country with honor and loyalty. They are asked to carry unbearable burdens that change their lives forever. After their service, they are often left with traumatic injuries that deeply damage their minds, bodies and spirits causing anxiety and depression. Many even lose their will to live. Headin’ Home knows that rescued horses both domestic and wild and wounded warriors can heal each other. The Headin’ Home Healing Journey is a program based on experiential horse activities that are designed to nurture emotional growth and healing from trauma and is offered to Veterans and First Responders with PTSD, TBI and MST, anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts at no cost. A staff that includes a therapist, a horse professional and life skills staff guides the activities. Because of the experiential aspect, changes in behavior and increased insight for the participants often arise quickly and have a lasting transferable effect. Participants learn about themselves and others by participating in gentling rescued wild horses, and then processing feelings, behaviors, and patterns. Wild Horse Gentling is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has proven to have an incredible impact on individuals and groups. It addresses a variety of mental health and human development needs including behavioral issues, attention deficit disorder, PTSD, substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems and communication needs.
