Equine Assisted Learning & Psychotherapy
Thank you for your donations. The War Horse Project is an equine-assisted psychotherapy program intended for Canadian Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and Corrections Officers who have been adversely affected by trauma. This program has provided lasting and measurable benefits not achieved with conventional therapies alone.

The Story behind the Picture The Story behind the Picture
This Afganistan war veteran built a very special bond with Lilly, who does not like to have her face touched. As their relationship grew in trust and respect, Lilly allowed Andrew to touch her face.

We'd like to say a special thanks to our many - upwards of 400 - volunteers. These programs would not be possible with you.
