This week, join host Marianna Cacciatore as she interviews two extraordinary people who have teamed up with our equine cousins – horses – to bring healing to the wounded and to teach communication, leadership, and relationship skills for a lifetime. With the help of a grant from Bread for the Journey of Santa Fe, accomplished riding instructor and veteran Gus Jolley started Listening Horse Therapeutic Riding to bring healing to veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other wounds of war. With his equine co-facilitators, Promise, Sugar, and Zorro, Gus and a growing team of veteran and active military volunteers, offer free equine therapy to wounded veterans, teaching them the safety and peace of living in the present moment, just as the horses do.
Writer and accomplished horsewoman Kelly Wendorf seeks to liberate what is already good, courageous and whole in people, using their encounter with horses. Kelly developed The Equus Experience, currently used in corporate, academic and organizational environments to explore collaborative leadership and personal development. Tune in and learn how, with horses as co-facilitators, Kelly and Gus are helping people tap into their innate wisdom, strength and wholeness.
