Jesse has attended Horses for Hope for 4 sessions and there has been a significant change for him and his family.

This young man (9yo) has been through trauma in the past and has been diagnosed with Asperger’s and this has caused big problem for him and his family. By participating in the Horses For Hope program Jesse is learning ways to help himself manage these problem behaviours.

“Asperger’s goes away when I’m with the horses” Jesse says with a big grin on his face.

Horses For Hope manager Colin Emonson explained:

"Jesse has worked with four different horses in his four sessions so far."

"Each one builds on a skill level required by the participant because of where each horse is on its journey."

"Phoenix needs lots of calmness and slow steadiness."

He is proud of what he has done here helping the horses so far and so he should be. He is also proud of his new found ability to take control when he is tempted by problem behaviours.

His mum explains “ I get emotional when I drive away from here after witnessing what has happened in the round yard with Jesse, You have horses that have had trauma and people who have had trauma and put them together and they connect…. Rehabilitating together”, “This is not just another Band-Aid, this gives us Hope”.

Hope because of the changes that we see in Jesse.

Hope for our future.
