Your TAX DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTION will help kids and teens like ‘Susan’. Susan was physically, verbally and sexually abused from a very early age. She was abandoned by her mom at 5, left in the care of her grandmother. Her grandma has health issues, but has tried to the do the best she can for Susan. Susan has struggled with anxiety. She has very poor boundaries and has experienced a lot of bullying. She was starting to show signs of succumbing to peer pressure and was beginning to make very poor choice ‘following the crowd’ when she started working with horses. Through work with horses, Susan has been able to open up and share her feelings about her fears and worries. She has been learning self-soothing/calming skills and has begun to set good boundaries with her horse. She is practicing considering the consequences of her decisions (before making them) and is beginning to see herself as a leader, rather than a follower. Susan has a brighter future because of her work with horses.
