Sharing my life experience
One of my goals is to talk with the youth about the effects of drugs and alcohol. I went from being a man with morals, values and goals to someone who felt they had no consequence for their actions. I want kids to see how drugs and alcohol negatively impacted my life.
Working to reach kids through horses.
In our culture it is believed that horse is seen as a symbol of freedom without restraint, when riding a horse, one feels they could free themselves from their own bindings. The horse has always been seen as power within many tribes.
Based on successful therapeutic methods in transforming the lives of teens in crisis, with the interaction between kids and horses to provide mental, physical, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual healing to individuals by harnessing the powerful connection between horses and people. Horses have an extraordinary ability to read the body language and mirror the inner struggles of our youth. Equine Therapy is a powerful way of helping these young people find their internal controls and ability to manage difficult feelings and challenging situations.
*CONTINUING TO HELP
I want kids to walk away knowing that I am more than someone standing in front of them talking about drugs. I want them to know they have someone who will listen and someone they can count on.
