Domestic abuse survivors and their families can learn from horses, including how to control fear, how to be more assertive and confident and how to connect with others. This was 180’s first experience with this form of therapy and we will be exploring ways to perhaps integrate programs such as this in the future.
Special thanks to Honor and “Mini Horse Heroes” for making this day possible for our families.
Mini Horse Heroes serve in memory of P.O. Ken Tietjen formerly of Middletown, NJ. The organization was started in 2001 to honor Port Authority Police Officer, Ken Tietjen, who gave his life saving others on 9/11.
