The Equus Effect is a non-profit organization in Sharon, CT that uses Experiential Learning with Horses to help veterans and others in transition rebuild healthy relationships through purposeful engagement with horses.
The organization has served over 300 veterans in 6 locations since 2013. The need is great for the incredible healing power of horses to teach vets and others in high stress positions to settle down, cultivate self awareness, and respond rather than react to people and situations in their lives. Equines are particularly suited for this task. Learn about the important work of The Equus Effect through their presentation in words and images.
Pequot Library presents this inspiring story in conjunction with this year’s One Book One Town selection, Running with Sherman: The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero.
