  • Our Seeds of Courage program will provide Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy for military personnel and public service employees to support them in personal and professional development.

The Seeds of Courage Program will encompass aspects of all of the Mustard Seed programs and be geared to fit the specific needs of the individual.

 

  • The U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs estimates that Post Traumatic Stress afflicts as many as one-quarter of the troops returning from the Middle East, or about 300,000 men and women. The growing field of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is showing great promise in treating veterans and their families who suffer from the nightmares, anxiety, depression, anger, irritability and other debilitating effects of this invisible, yet very real disability. The Mustard Seed Farm, Seed of Courage program, will address the need for PTSD treatment in Rhode Island by utilizing horses as well as therapists.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) & Equine Assisted Growth and Learning (EAL)

Horses are very much like humans in that they are social creatures. They have distinct personalities, attitudes, and moods. Horses have the ability to mirror human body language making them natural therapists and teachers. Horses provide unconditional acceptance. When horses react to our body language, this gives incredible and immediate feedback to what participants are communicating non-verbally.In EAP and EAL the participants, specialists, and horses gather in an arena together. The participants are then presented with specific challenges to partake in with the horses. The challenges are not always easy. Participants learn if they want to change the horses behavior, they must change their own behavior, thoughts, and feelings first. EAP and EAL are POWERFUL because it’s not just talking, it’s DOING!
