A Few Words From Our Clients

 

A Breath Of Fresh Air

Barnabas has been a breath of fresh air for my kids, they are always smiling and so relaxed when at the stables. The volunteers are committed to the kids and work with them so well on good days and bad. Our experiences there are invaluable.

Relax and Ground Myself

I always look forward to coming to Barnabas. Being able to hang out with the horses is extremely stress relieving. It is a time where I am able to relax and ground myself before getting back out into the real world.

Help To Cope With My PTSD

All I can say is I am so grateful that I went through with the program. Being around the horses, and the leaders/staff at Barnabas, has gone a long way to help me cope with my PTSD. The program has also helped me start to recover from my past trauma.

Unless you have worked with a horse, not to just ride for entertainment, you will not fully understand. You will not know what it’s like to make a connection with a horse. It is a wondrous thing. I have learned to respect a horse and realize I can learn to love myself.
