My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Trauma and Resiliency Resources, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I had an experience during equine therapy that made a large, lasting impact on my life. I was "just being" with a horse and I started crying. I was thinking how evil I was compared to this beautiful, innocent horse. My therapist asked me why I was crying and told her. She responded something along the lines of "do you think this horse would be acting this calm near you if you were truly evil? Do you think the horse wouldn't be able to sense that?" All my experience with all the horses up to that point had proven to me that horses would be able to sense that. It was the first time I had "proof" that I wasn't evil and that I could possibly get redemption for the harm I have caused in the world.
