2/13 update: My interest in the animal/human bond and as it relates to healing now has another avenue in which I can explore in my new position as a rehabilitation aide in the physical therapy and rehabilitation dept. of a large children's hospital program. Therapy dogs are brought in often to be used in therapy with the kids. Again, a fascinating interaction to watch unfold and one completely different then horses in an EAP setting.
11/15 update: I no longer work as an ES. I continue to work at a large pediatric hospital but now am in the Emergency Dept. working as a Mental Health Tech. I probably value the time with my own horses even more as they provide a wonderful service to me as a stress reliever and grounding agent. I remain intrigued with the interplay between a horse and rider relationship. This blog has become a creative outlet for me and a place to think about horses in writing. I have never been interested in competing with my horses but love riding and interacting with them. My goals have always been to have a good bond with my horses and for them to enjoy our time together as much as I do! I mainly trail ride. Love trail riding!! My horses have an easy, good life. I love photographing them and they appear often in my artwork.
Me and my horses:
