Equine-Assisted Therapy For Veterans Amber Lynne GAyheart

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs should create more equine assisted therapy programs in Virginia Beach for veterans with PTSD.

Veterans with PTSD will be able to interact with and heal from horses through equine-assisted therapy programs.

Because horses can be skittish animals, veterans will learn that they must always stay at peace in order to keep the horses calm.

Horses are a great form of therapy for veterans because they help them find and maintain a peaceful attitude that they can take into real life situations.
