Team RF understands the overwhelming feelings that drown America’s Bravest mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The trauma experienced in combat zones or on incident scenes create an unbalanced life with feelings and emotions that affect daily tasks, relationships, sleep patterns, dietary and exercise habits, the list is long and varied.
Team RF creates a safe, peaceful environment to allow each participant to focus on their traumatic stressors. As the participant gets acquainted with their horse partner, the participant’s mood swings or physical changes due to a PTS trigger are reflected by the horse to their human partner. The bond created during these reflections invoke a healing power that is undeniable.
