Mustangs & WarHorses (M&W) is an experiential therapeutic program set up for a total of 10 two hour sessions (total of 20 hours) creating a more powerful experience for each participant. Rather than talking one-on-one with a therapist in an office, this program offers an outdoor setting combining trauma-focused psychotherapists, equine specialists and rescued Evanescent Mustangs with small groups of Veterans and 1st responders battling a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The rescued Mustangs that are chosen for this program are at different stages of healing offering a unique opportunity for the Veterans/1st Responders and Mustangs to continue on their healing journey together. Horses are honest, intuitive, and will call out any BS brought into the arena, but mustangs take it to a higher level for a deeper healing to occur. M&W is designed to help reduce trauma responses while learning self-regulation, mindfulness, boundaries, confidence, and building trust. The psychotherapists assist the Veterans/1st Responders in recognizing their triggers, emotional responses, and releasing toxic trauma they may be holding onto. The first few sessions are focused on trust building while evaluating their horse knowledge and comfort level, which will include basic horse care and groundwork exercises (horse behaviors, grooming, leading horses) before moving on to the next step of deeper therapeutic work with the mustangs. Participants may graduate after their first course or request to return for another 10 week course depending on their progress and needs.
