PEACE Ranch Specializes In Equine Therapy

Running horse

Running horsePEACE Ranch is a facility that caters to the needs of individuals with physical and mental conditions, reports Marionette Kubicz of Morning Star Publishing.

One of their programs called Equine Assisted Veterans Services (EAVS), revolve around the use of horse therapy. The curriculum is recommended for war veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which can cause an ex-solider to become socially challenged. Working with horses can boost their self-confidence, as they slowly transition towards a civilian lifestyle.

Jacquelyn Kaschel, the Executive Director of PEACE Ranch, is certified by Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association, Inc. (EAGALA) to conduct advance horse therapy sessions. Apart from PTSD, individuals with a variety of disorders such as anxiety, chronic pain, and autism can also benefit from the program.

The organization has plans to extend their services in order to reach out to more people who are in need of healing.
