There's just something about working with the horses that makes you realize how much you carry with you constantly because they mimic your feelings and emotions. I absolutely loved this workshop, but I also had a difficult time because I carry so much with me that I can't seem to let go. Seeing that reflected in the horse was difficult for me, and was a very emotional event. But I needed it. Even though the workshop just ended yesterday I want more!! Thank you Steve for working and sharing with the Soldiers at the WTU here at Campbell. I hope you realize how much it means to us and how much we appreciate you and what you're doing.
The project was instrumental in helping me cope with anxiety. Instructors take a great deal of time to ensure everyone benefits from the program. Program would benefit more soldiers by incorporating it after deployments. PTSD, anxiety, and depression are a few issues the program helps with. I would recommend it to all veterans seeking help.
Greg and Tony gave each participant the courage and freedom to challenge their anxiety with kindness and respect. It was an honor to participant.
A very unique and relaxing experience. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the horses and also know how to read and work withe project could incorporate more roles/activities based upon the size of the group.
Greg, Tony and Mike & Tammy are incredible. Mike and Tammy's facilities were an awesome environment to learn and relax and grow. Thank. Every. Single. Minute. Overflowing with humility and love. Rob
Rob, thank you so much for the kind review!
Did a good job introducing vets to horses and allowing the training and the binding to help heal the vet.
Help me build confidence dealing with such a large animal and also relay in how to build confidence Within Myself. Little bit of time management skills can be improved on I guess.
Do a very good job at helping people leave all the bad things in life at the door. I love how willing they were to help my 10yr old son feel like he\u2019s a part of what the adults are doing. As for improving maybe they could offer one of the program during summer in order to make it easier to attend and let people know that boots are basically a requirement \uD83D\uDE42
They are doing well with the teachings and training, beneficial for eveyone. Website could be updated
More funding since it is non profit and maybe have the class go for more days and get more people involved so there can be bigger classes
Working with Horses has been the single best thing that I have done with WTB program. And it was an experience of a lifetime!
Helping veterans train horses having problems in turn helping veterans work through their problems
VBDP is an amazing organization. The weekend was therapeutic, fun, and informative. Everyone involved was kind, welcoming and extremely talented in their particular field of expertise. The way that they help Veterans through horse work is incredible. Will be attending another clinic for sure in the future.
I witnessed a wonderful interactions among veterans from many different era's, back grounds and experiences! By the end of day one ypu would have thought this group knew one another for years! Everyone was joking laughing having a good time!
Im not sure what it is about horses, after a long days work around them, i dont need medication to sleep, with that good nights sleep i feel so much better! I cant get that from different color pills! I cant thank them enough for that wonderful and uplifting experience!
Very helpful in creating a bond and breaking away from current stresses. Relieved alot of stress and tension and building a relationship one on one with a horse is amazing. The instructors are incredible people and very understanding. Only wish is that they had more classes or were around more often. Otherwise perfect and wonderful.
They were amazing with helping me cope with my issues. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Sweet and insightful guys who like to help the veterans and the animals.
The Non profit was very helpful with connecting to Army Service members and took really good care for the animals they worked with.
The project is doing really well in helping military members come to ease with Thier problems. The class was very soothing and helps relaxing nerves. The only thing I would improve would maybe make it longer than 3 days.
Their ability to connect veterans with horses. They are amazing
Helping veterans learn to cope with ptsd. Great non profit
