Horses for Hope (Equine Assisted Narrative Therapy Program) invites members and supporters of North East Thoroughbreds to a Demonstration Day being held this Friday November 30th.
The purpose of this event is twofold:
1) To provide a short demonstration of the processes we use in Horses for Hope to assist traumatised people in taking control of their emotions and, by extension, their lives. We also wish to explain why the program also relies on troubled horses, and how they too can benefit from participation in the program.
2) Horses for Hope is an innovative and extremely effective program which, though well known and respected, appears not to be widely understood. We feel this is one reason it has not enjoyed greater support from within the 'equine industry'. As we are rapidly approaching the point where we can no longer afford to deliver the program without greater financial assistance we are hoping that by creating a greater awareness of the program among local businesses involved in horse breeding we may be able to secure the program's future.
However, please rest assured that we have no intention of exerting any pressure on those attending the demonstration. Our main aim is to raise awareness of what Horses for Hope is and how it works.
