- 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. Providing access to an engaging and therapeutic relationship with equines, we offer an experience and opportunity that is specific to this demographic. 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.
