This weekend we had the sincere honor of introducing horse communication to 2 visually impaired Vietnam veterans who are in the Long Beach Blind Rehab Center's program.
These pics start with Rags seeing a wheelchair for the first time, and progress quickly to show the level of trust with both horse and veterans. Rags had tension release with the veterans just grooming and using a carrot stick, an adaptation of Masterson Method techniques veterans can learn at EET.
Blindness and wheelchairs can't stop the power of horses and self trust. So much thanks goes to the Long Beach VA for allowing us to spend time with these incredible veterans and introduce them to what we do.
